Susan Gordon 1949- 2011


On December 11. child actress Susan Gordon succumbed to cancer in her New Jersey home at the age of 62. She appeared in Tormented, Attack of the Puppet People, and scared the holy crap out of me when I was 5 years old with her performance in Picture Mommy Dead.

The shot of her clawing the painting of Zsa Zsa Gabor as blood trickled down is permanently etched in the nightmare section of my brain. She also won my heart in the episode of the Twilight Zone were she plays a disabled girl with a special friend from Outer Space. After appearing in numerous TV shoes, she grew up to put out several CDs and appear off Broadway.
