Eleanor Parker, this month’s TCM star, worked in Hollywood for 50 years. Yep. You know her, she’s the gorgeous baroness trying to steal Captain Von Trapp away from our little nun, Maria in Sound of Music.

She’s also Errol Flynn’s ex-wife in Never Say Goodbye.

Read more about her on TCM, and Happy Birthday Eleanor!
