This is just wonderful, Lansbury still
bright eyed and bushy tailed. Touring
Australia on Stage. Go Lady Go !!!!!!!
Angela Brigdit Lansbury has always been
a favorite Actress of mine. I first saw her in Gaslight,
when I was a young girl. I have the video,
I watch my favorites every year. Never knew she was
only 18 years old in that film and was up for an Oscar.
Lansbury was born in London 1925
and moved to Hollywood in the 40's, during the London Blitz
Working at a dept store she was discovered.
Lansbury went to Feagin School of Drama.
In Gaslight with the top stars of Hollywood 1944 ,
she played a maid called Nancy the cast was INGRID BERGMAN,
and Charles Boyer. Imagine Landsbury was only 18 years old.
In one of the biggest classic Movies of our time.
My Daughter was working in FS Schumachers in NYC
and called me in Florida to say Angela Landsbury
had come into the store and she was elegant.
I did a happy dance.
After eight decades of Acting I guess
I have seen most of her movies.
Loved the movie Dorian Grey,
Tried to never miss Murder She Wrote
I still watch reruns. I live in Maine now.
Then there was the movie Anastasia,
Then Manchurian Candidate was a great movie.
Broadway I saw her in Mame, she was in so many plays.
Didn't get to see Gypsy , Darn it!
At 87 she is just amazing, what a Lady she is.
Long live the Queen, of Acting. I just love her.
Not many will fill her shoes.
