Legendary screen actress Kim Novak has been diagnosed with breast cancer, according to her manager.

The 77-year-old best known for her starring role in the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock movie Vertigo, is expected to make a full recovery.

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

Novak retired from acting in 1991 and lives on a 240-acre ranch in Oregon with her veterinarian husband Bob Malloy, whom she married in 1976.
