Angela Lansbury

Postby Colin B » Thu Oct 15, 2015 11:09 pm

Angela Lansbury is 90 today !

Happy Birthday, Angela !

Originally from the UK, Angela has had most of her success in the US.

In a long career, she has appeared in many films including The Manchurian Candidate [1962] & Bedknobs & Broomsticks [1971]

From 1984 to 1996, she played Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote on TV.

In 1961, she played Elvis' mother in Blue Hawaii [although only 10 years his senior] !

And what did Elvis do every year up until 1977 according to Angela?

And she was only 3 years older than Laurence Harvey when she played his mother in probably her greatest role in "The Manchurian Candidate."

Wow. What a lady. She (and James Earl Jones) spent 3 months in Australia several years ago. They did "Driving Miss Daisy" on stage. I loved every moment of her time here. Always one of my favourites.

Hi Gibbo. :) Yes what an actress and character. She was a very credible sleuth in Midsomer Murders. I expect you get or have had this series on Aussie tv?
