In 1958, Susan returned to the big screen again in Stage Struck (1958). Although her billing wasn't anywhere near what it was with "Picnic", the picture got good reviews. For the remainder of her acting career, Susan alternated among the stage, screen and television. Where there was an acting role, she was there to appear in it. She spent some time in Europe, particularly Italy, making films for the rabid fans there. During the course of her tenure, she appeared in three documentaries about her old friend, Marilyn Monroe. The first two were Marilyn Monroe: Beyond the Legend (1987) and Remembering Marilyn (1987). The third was Marilyn Monroe: Life After Death (1994).
