    (August 21, 1945- )
    Birth name is Patricia Ellen Russo
    Acted in films in ‘Two Gals and a Guy (1951),' ‘The Bad Seed (1956),' ‘All Mine to Give (1957),' ‘Kathy O' (1958),' ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1960),' ‘The Mini-Skirt Mob (1968),' ‘The Young Animals (1968),' ‘Mommy (1995),' ‘Mommy II: Mommy's Day (1997),' ‘The Medicine Show (2001)' and ‘Target (2004)'
    Acted in television shows ‘Mama (1949),' ‘Peck's Bad Girl (1959)' and ‘The Ropers (1979)'
    Despite a long career in theater, film and television, she is doomed to be remembered as Rhoda Penmark, the child murderess in ‘The Bad Seed.'
    She is sometimes confused with fellow former child star Patty Duke.
    Her sequels to ‘The Bad Seed,' ‘Mommy' and “Mommy 2,' went straight to video.
    When asked by the director of ‘The Bad Seed' how she liked playing a psychopath, she said ‘Oh Mr. Leroy, I'm having so much fun!'
    She played the first (and perhaps the scariest) evil child in movie history.
    Her portrayal of Rhoda Penmark earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
    The adults she worked with found her very mature and professional.
    She had to put up with being spanked by co-star Nancy Kelly in a nutty curtain call to ‘The Bad Seed.'
    She has a memorable recurring role as Adriana's mother in ‘The Sopranos.'
