    Default Dina Merrill dead at 93. Daughter of Marjorie Merriweather Post

    Actress, everywhere in the 60s. Once married to Cliff Robertson.

    Current connection - she was the daughter of Marjorie Merriweather Post, heiress to the Post Cereals fortune. MMP built Mar-a-Lago, now Donald Trump's weekend residence.

    She was always such a very classy, almost royal, looking beautiful lady. Very sophisticated and aristocratic features. R.I.P.

    I didn't know she was 93. She definitely had class, grace, beauty, and talent. RIP, Ms. Merill.

    She was a very good actress, better than she was given credit for. The photo in the center is my favorite of her; it's from one of Francesco Scavullo's beauty books:

    She was stunning and pretty in every decade. I think of her in three favorite movies - Butterfield 8, Operation Petticoat and The Player in the 90s. A surprisingly commanding presence on screen. She also played Oscar Madison's girlfriend one time on The Odd Couple tv show.

    I know it's too soon to mention, but you can bet I'll be looking out for an auction should someone put it together. Can you imagine the lifetime of jewels and collectibles? The staggeringly tasteful kind.

    Butterfield 8. Liz grabbed Dina's fur and was on her way to bring it back. That apartment building was one block from Jackie O's on 5th Ave.

    Maybe a little early but Marjorie Merriweather had a stunning collection of jewelry and several Faberge Eggs . There is a book coming out next month about all of her jewelry

    I want the name of her plastic surgeon. Just enough work to stay beautiful but not botoxed filler-faced. (I'm looking at you, Nicole.)

    I thought she died years ago. Dina Merrill was such a beauty, very patrician-looking.

    She was gorgeous. I remember my mother showing me her pictures.

    When I hear her mothers name, I always think of Merriweather Post Pavilion. Those of you from the mid-Atlantic area know it as a great concert venue.

    I love that photo as well and I loved Scavullo's books. They were the best.
