Actress Barbara McNair Dead at 72

Barbara McNair has died at 72 after a long battle with throat cancer. The singer and actress was a successful recording artist but had her biggest success as an actress in the 70s and 80s.

"A lot of people think celebrity comes with a burden," said [husband Charles] Blecka, who also served as McNair's manager. "Barbara never did. Along with her inner strength she had this ability to just accept everybody, in all walks of life. Ask anybody in the business, she was one of the most wonderful people you'd ever want to come across."
