The actress “passed away peacefully, surrounded by her children at a medical facility near her home in Palm Springs,” said sources close to the family.

The red-haired actress had best-actress Oscar nominations in 1951 and 1952 for her roles as a prison inmate in “Caged” and as Kirk Douglas’ frustrated wife in “Detective Story.”

Her third nomination was for the challenging role of polio-stricken opera singer Marjorie Lawrence in “Interrupted Melody.”

The 1965 “Sound of Music,” in which her character loses Christopher Plummer to Julie Andrews, was her last major film role.
