The actress played the Baroness in the hit movie musical, which was revamped for TV just last week.

She was nominated for an Oscar three times and appeared in close to 50 movies, including the 1950s classics Scaramouche, Lizzie, Detective Story, The Naked Jungle and Escape From Fort Bravo.

Parker also played opposite Frank Sinatra in The Man With the Golden Arm.

Her last credit was Dead on the Money, a 1991 made for TV movie.
