Producer/screenwriter Freed dies

She passed away at her Los Angeles home last week (22Dec11) after a long illness.

Freed began her career as a producer and worked with her first husband, actor George Segal, on his films Russian Roulette (1975) and Fun with Dick and Jane (1977). She also served as a film editor on director Terrence Malick’s movies Badlands (1973) and 1978’s Days of Heaven.

She wed moviemaker Herb Freed in 1985 and they worked on three independent films in the late 1990s – Subterfuge, Paradise Lost and Child 2 Man – all of which were written by the late star and directed by her husband.
