Rosemary Murphy, who co-starred in a 1972 film shot at Duluth's Glensheen Mansion, has died at the age of 89, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Murphy co-starred in "You'll Like My Mother," playing a secretive woman who fears a character played by Patty Duke will take the family fortune.  The film was shot at the Congdon estate in February 1972 and was screened at the mansion last month in an event featuring Duke.

In a Tweet, Duke called Murphy a brilliant actress and said it was wonderful to know and work with her.

Murphy was active in the industry for more than six decades and had dozens of roles.  She's perhaps best known for playing Miss Maudie in 1962's "To Kill a Mockingbird" and won a Primetime Emmy for her portrayal of Eleanor Roosevelt in 1976.
