Anne Francis, the woman who played the first female detective on the TV series ABC's "Honey West" in 1965, has passed away. She is reported to have died of pancreatic cancer in Santa Barbara, California and she was 80 years old. Francis appeared in countless TV shows between 1949 and 2004.

To list Francis' roles on TV would be like listing all of the shows that were made between 1949 and 2004. Let's just say they included 'Kraft Theater,' 'Rawhide,' 'The Untouchables,' 'Route 66,' 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents,' 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,' 'The Invaders,' 'Mission: Impossible,' 'My Three Sons,' 'Columbo,' 'Dallas,' 'Home Improvement,' 'Wings' and 'Without a Trace.' She also guest starred in a classic episode of 'The Twilight Zone' that was shown last weekend during Syfy's marathon of the show.

So a legendary actress leaves us, but with a huge body of work behind her which means she will be hard to forget anytime soon.
