Though blessed with glamorous good looks and an elegant stage presence, Hope Lange, 70, who died of an infection brought on by ischemic colitis Dec. 19 in Santa Monica, had a gift for both comedy and drama. During a career that spanned half a century, the Connecticut native received an Oscar nomination for her performance as a sexually abused high schooler in 1957’s Peyton Place, showed off Emmy-winning comedic timing in TV’s The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1968-70) and The New Dick Van Dyke Show (1971-74), and appeared in films as divergent as 1986’s Blue Velvet and 1994’s Clear and Present Danger.
