Actress Doris Belack, who appeared as the original
Anna Wolek Craig on “One Life to Live” and recurred as a judge on “Law and
Order” during a long career in television and film, died of natural causes in
Manhattan on Tuesday, Oct. 4. She was 85.
Her husband, theatrical producer
Philip Rose, to whom she was married for 65 years, died just four months

In 1955 she performed with Sidney Poitier on the record “Poetry of
the Negro,” produced by Rose.

Belack appeared in an episode of “Treasury
Men in Action” in 1951, but her TV career really got going with a 1963
appearance on “East Side/West Side,” a guest role on two episodes of “The Patty
Duke Show” and subsequent work in daytime soap operas. She recurred on “One Life
to Live” from 1968-77 and also appeared on “The Edge of Night,” “Another World”
and “The Doctors.”

The actress made her feature debut with a leading role
in the 1977 family drama Looking Up,” and she made an impression in 1982′s
“Tootsie,” where her performance as a strong female leader echoed and reinforced
some of the film’s themes.


A joint public memorial for both Belack and Rose will be held on Monday, October 17, at Noon ET at the Ambassador Theater in New York City.
