I am devastated to share that my lovely mother, Susan Harrison, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on March 5, 2019. I am heartbroken...she was my heart, my anchor, my unfailing supporter and the best Granny ever to my son Cassius and my niece and nephew Naomi and Chase. She lived an amazing life and made friends wherever she went with her kindness, intelligence and great wit. She was the most beautiful and elegant woman I have ever seen, and remained beautiful to the day she died. Last but not least she was an amazingly talented and highly trained actress who started acting on Broadway and became a bona fide movie star. She had many titles, but to me she was my sweet Mom and there will never be another like her. ????

I had never in my entire experience saw such a hands-on, constantly changing, totally co-operative group."

The drama was directed by Alexander Mackendrick, who helmed popular Ealing Studios pictures Whisky Galore! (1949), The Man in the White Suit (1951) and The Ladykillers (1955). Overseeing Mackendrick's first American film was Lancaster, who produced Sweet Smell of Success through his Hecht-Hill-Lancaster company.

"Although [Mackendrick] was very gentlemanly and acted quietly normally, on the set he was commanding and ferocious. And as a matter of fact, the integrity of his leadership was the strongest comfort probably for all us, certainly for me," Harrison recalled.

Born on Aug. 26, 1938, in Leesburg, Florida, Harrison was the daughter of vaudeville performers. She studied at the School of Performing Arts in the Bronx and then at Boston University under the direction of Odets protege Peter Kass.
