The Resume

    (November 10, 1928-September 28, 1973)
    Born in New York City, New York
    Birth name was Norma Anna Bella Zuckerman
    Portrayed Golde in the film version of 'Fiddler on the Roof' (1971)
    Acted in 'Tea and Sympathy (1956),' 'All in a Night's Work (1961),' 'Penelope (1966),' and 'The Sweet Ride (1968)'

Why she might be annoying:

    She divorced writer-producer Herb Sargent.
    Her Wikipedia and IMDb bios claim she made her Broadway debut in The Crucible, but there's no record of it in the Internet Broadway Database (nowhere is it even listed what part she would have played).
    She got the role of Golde in Fiddler only after actress Hanna Maron (Norman Jewison's original choice for the role) lost her leg in a terrorist attack in Munich.

Why she might not be annoying:

    She was born in New York City, but raised in El Paso.
    She was a member of Elia Kazan's Actors Studio.
    She first gained recognition in a Studio One adaptation of Orwell's 1984, in the role of Julia.
    She was suffering from breast cancer while filming Fiddler, and died less than 2 years later. It would be her final film.
    She was close friends with Natalie Wood, who paid for her medical bills and later her funeral expenses.
