Sue Mengers Dies
October 17, 2011 by staff
The news was first reported by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, who wrote in her blog Sunday that Mengers died of a series of small strokes, surrounded by close friends Ali MacGraw, Joanna Poitier, and Boatwright Boaty.
Mengers – who kept her secret was real, although it is believed around 80 – was one of the most powerful agents in Hollywood in the 1970s, increasing the level of senior vice president of the William Morris Agency then in charge of their division of film and literature.
His clients include Barbra Streisand, Michael Caine, Ryan O’Neal, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Cher, Joan Collins, Burt Reynolds and Nick Nolte.
Mengers also repped powerful directors as Sidney Lumet, Brian De Palma, Bob Fosse, Mike Nichols and Peter Bogdanovich.
“She was a child over 70, never looked her age – and an increasingly common joint in the hand, not acting right,” Carter wrote in her blog. “Sue was a baby Holocaust, arriving in the state of New York before America entered the war. No one in her family speaks English and, like many immigrants, he set her sites on a career in show business.”
Carter added: “She loved film stars – was called” sparklies “… This was why he had come to California and is what made it such an integral part of the film community, if you can still call it Sue .. always wanted to call the autobiography he never wrote, “when he was alive.” Like the great man he was, how wonderful that was never written the book with her. “
