Oscar-winner Celeste Holm didn't think highly of Hollywood. The actress, who died at the age of 95 on Sunday, preferred to be known for her stage and television career, which lasted more than 60 years. Although her movie career had a short peak of only about 10 years (1947-57), during that time, she made an indelible mark on the big screen.

In fact, she remained an intelligent, acerbic big-screen presence throughout her life. Latter-day audiences will remember her as Ted Danson's no-nonsense mother in "Three Men and a Baby" (1987), and even at the end of her life, she'd completed roles in two yet-to-be-released comedies, "College Debts" and "Driving Me Crazy." Still, she'll be best remembered for the work she did in "Gentleman's Agreement," "All About Eve," "High Society," and other landmark films of the 1940s and '50s. Here's a list of her 10 essential movie roles.
