Susan Gordon (1949 - 2011)

Susan Gordon, who as a child appeared in several films by her father Bert I. Gordon, has passed away in New Jersey after a battle with cancer at the age of 62. Mr. Gordon's is best remembered for his giant monster movies (a la Earth Vs. The Spider or The Amazing Colossal Man)- and she was cast in his Attack of the Puppet People, but also appeared in some of his less typical (and ironically, stronger) efforts. She made a strong impression in the kiddie matinee fantasy The Boy and The Pirates, the underrated ghost story Tormented and the gothic melodrama, Picture Mommy Dead. In addition to her father's films, she also appeared on the big screen with Danny Kaye in The Five Pennies and Alan Ladd in The Man In The Net. Ms. Gordon was also busy on television, with a live presentation of Miracle on 34th Street (airing on Thanksgiving of 1959), and appearances in such series as "The Twilight Zone" and "My Three Sons".
