Movie veteran Geraldine Fitzgerald has died after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. She was 91.

The actress appeared in a series of classic movies including DARK VICTORY, NOBODY LIVES FOREVER and WUTHERING HEIGHTS, but is perhaps best known for her work on the New York stage.

The Irish actress received an Academy Award nomination for her performance as ISABELLA, opposite Laurence Olivier and MERLE OBERON, in 1939's Wuthering Heights.

Fitzgerald received a Tony Award nomination in the early 1980s for directing religious drama MASS APPEAL and she also developed a hit one-woman cabaret show called STREETSONGS.
