Tony-Winning Actress Nancy Kelly Dies

Nancy Kelly, an award-winning stage actress who also appeared in scores of films, died on Jan. 2 at her home in Bel Air, Calif. She was 73.

The cause was diabetes-related illness, her family said when they reported her death on Friday.

Kelly received a Tony during the 1954-55 Broadway season when she appeared in Maxwell Anderson’s play “The Bad Seed.”

She played a mother who realizes that her daughter (Patty McCormack) is a murderous psychotic and tries to atone for her crimes.
