Her films included Klute (1971), The New Centurions (1972) with George C. Scott, Uptown Saturday Night (1974) with Sydney Poitier, and Wrong Is Right (1982). In 1995, she appeared in Tales from the Hood which marks her last film appearance during her lifetime. Cash was nominated for an Emmy Award for her work on the Public Broadcasting Service production of Go Tell it on the Mountain and in 1973 appeared as Goneril with James Earl Jones' Lear at the New York Shakespeare Festival.
