Hollywood actress Sheree North, who went from glamorous star of the 1950s to a television comedy regular in the 1990s, has died at the age of 73.

From Broadway she went on to star with Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in the 1954 comedy Living It Up among other films.

Her career spanned the decades and she continued to make audiences laugh in the 1990s as Babs, Kramer's mother in television comedy series Seinfeld.

She died in hospital in Los Angeles last week after undergoing surgery.
