Eleanor Parker played the role of the intuitive Baroness, her character could see she was losing her Captain to Maria before either of them realised how they felt for each other. Sadly Parker passed away on Monday 9th December, 2013 due to complications from pneumonia, aged 91. She starred in the 1965 hit at the peak of her career after receiving three Oscar nominations but her star never took off with a string of failed films she disappeared from the spotlight. This photo of her on the left was taken in 1978 and is the most recent available.
