Nina Foch (1924-2008)

If people match names to roles, most probably know Foch best as Bithiah, Pharaoh's daughter who raises Moses as a prince of Egypt in the 1956 version of The Ten Commandments. But I think this clip from one of her first film roles, The Return of the Vampire, besides happening to be available for embedding, makes a better memorial. At least some of Lugosi's words take on a new poignancy now, if not a new truth.
