NEW YORK (AP) — Emmy-winning actress and singer Polly Bergen, who in a long career played the terrorized wife in the original "Cape Fear" and the first woman president in "Kisses for My President," died Saturday, according to her publicist. She was 84.
Bergen died at her home in Southbury, Connecticut, from natural causes, said publicist Judy Katz, surrounded by family and close friends.
A brunette beauty with a warm, sultry singing voice, Bergen was a household name from her 20s onward. She made albums and played leading roles in films, stage musicals and TV dramas. She also hosted her own variety series, was a popular game show panelist, and founded a thriving beauty products company that bore her name...

Polly Bergen had an amazing career and life, didn't she? She had one Emmy nomination in 1957 for her role as alcoholic singer Helen Morgan, and another 50 years later, for her role in Desperate Housewives! She also made a comeback as a singer after a 30 year break, and recovered her finances after unwise business decisions by her third husband led to huge losses.
I had no idea exactly how versatile her career had been. It was her Cape Fear (1962 original) performance that's stuck in my mind though.
Rest in peace, Miss Bergen.
