    LOS ANGELES — Actress Anne Francis, who was the love interest in the 1950s science-fiction classic “Forbidden Planet’’ and later was a sexy private eye in “Honey West’’ on television, has died at age 80.
    Ms. Francis died Sunday at a Santa Barbara nursing home, said Bill Guntle, a funeral director at McDermott-Crockett & Associates Mortuary in Santa Barbara.
    Ms. Francis, who had surgery and chemotherapy after being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2007, died of complications of pancreatic cancer, her daughter, Jane Uemura, told the Los Angeles Times.

    Ms. Francis, a stunningly beautiful blonde with a prominent beauty mark, appeared opposite such stars as Spencer Tracy, Paul Newman, Robert Taylor, and Glenn Ford in some of the most popular films of the 1950s. But “Forbidden Planet’’ and “Honey West’’ made her reputation.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    I was but a mere child when this was on but man, I knew a babe when I saw one even then.

    She looked good right into old age, though I admit I haven't seen pictures of her in several years.

    RIP Honey!

    Honestly, had I been a bit older when "Honey West" was on, I would have reacted in a different way, but I was too young to know what self pleasuring was all about. Despite my young naive self, I knew this woman was a babe.

    Funny how guys as young as 5 and 6 can appreciate gorgeous women! In all sincererity, my first conscious crush was when I was 4 or 5 and the girl was 6 or 7. Her name was Terry. Oh man, I wonder what she looks like now!?!?!?

    I say again, RIP Ms. Francis. :cry:
