148 of 192: Ann Rutherford, an actress who played Scarlett O'Hara's youngest sister in the legendary 'Gone With the Wind' died at age 94 on June 11, according to the Associated Press.

Rutherford died at her home in Beverly Hills and reportedly suffered from heart problems and was in declining health.

The actress also starred in several films in the Andy Hardy series, a long-running string of film which starred Lewis Stone as a small-town judge and Mickey Rooney as his teenage son. Rutherford played Rooney's love interest, Polly Benedict.

Her first marriage, to David May in 1942, ended in divorce; they had two children. In 1953, she married producer William Dozier, a union that lasted until his death in 1991. He was best known as the producer of the 'Batman' TV series.
