She died Thursday at her home in London after a short illness, according to her agent, Lionel Larner.
He also said she had recently completed filming “The Great Escaper,” co-starring with 90-year-old Michael Caine, with whom she had previously starred with in 1975’s “The Romantic Englishwoman.”
Caine said it was “as wonderful an experience this time as it was 50 years ago,” when the two last worked together.
“Glenda was one of our greatest movie actresses,” he said. “I shall miss her.”
