Legendary screen siren Kim Novak, best known for her work in the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock thriller Vertigo, is expected to make a full recovery after being diagnosed with breast cancer, her manager says.

“It was caught early by a routine yearly mammogram, and [she] is undergoing treatment. All her doctors say she is in fantastic physical shape and should recover very well,” Sue Cameron tells the Hollywood Reporter.

Novak, 77, a No. 1 box office star in the 1950s, gave up the Hollywood limelight for a quiet life on a 240-acre ranch in Oregon with her veterinarian husband Bob Malloy, whom she married in 1976.
