Wasn't she in some sort of movie that Denis Wick played on the soundtrack to?
I guess that if she appeared with Denis Wick, that might sort of make her notable?

And also one that Alex Iles played on the soundtrack.

Disappointing news!  :(

I particularly enjoyed the movie she wrote, "Postcards from the Edge".

I think some guy named Harrison is behind "Wedge" mouthpieces. Who is this Harrison Ford guy?

Looks like this last stroke finished off Debbie Reynolds [Fisher].
