R.I.P. SUE MENGERS
Sue Mengers, one of Hollywood’s most influential and colorful agents, died October 15 at her home in Beverly Hills after a series of small strokes.
Her death was first reported by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter in a blog post at VanityFair.com. Mengers, who claimed to be 78 although some sources list her age as 81, was surrounded by her friends Ali MacGraw, Joanna Poitier and Boaty Boatwright, Carter wrote.
Mengers, who at her peak in the ‘70s represented such stars as Barbra Streisand, Bob Fosse, Michael Caine, Peter Bogdanovich, Ryan O’Neal and Faye Dunaway, blazed a trail for women agents in Hollywood.
