Actress Carrie Snodgress has died from heart failure. Those of you who love movies and are too young to remember her performance in "Diary of A Mad Housewife" might want to rent the video. She gave a moving and memorable performance.
Snodgress projected honesty and vulnerability and truly made you empathize with her characters. She also had this wonderful husky voice.
After making a big initial splash, Snodgress turned her back on Hollywood to live a private life with significant other, musician Neil Young, and raise their disabled son.
I can understand why she made the choice she did; but I wonder what she might have accomplished had she continued to act.
