I have only just read of the death of one of Scotlands greatest exports and Hollywoods gain. I noted there was no fanfare on TV or the media - probally just how she would have wanted. Deborah Kerr will be sadly missed. She was truely Hollywood glamour and a star - the so-called Hollywood stars of today could not hold a candle to her.
