RIP Angela Lansbury.
« on: October 12, 2022, 03:17:25 AM »
Honestly, Murder, she wrote was my least favorite role for the Dame, but it's the one all the obits are running with.
Hated the show, loved the conspiracy theory that Jessica is the real killer, and Cabot Cove had more corpses than Sunnydale.
That being said, Twelve FULL seasons is nothing to sneeze at, when seasons now top out at eight episodes, the Dame was pushing 22!

Also, interesting that she took a break in the middle of her own show, providing bookends for many episodes. When she got a production credit, she came back to the series. I'm glad she was able to get that EP credit, after all, it was her dang show.


I've heard she's particularly sinister in Manchurian Candidate, I'll have to give that one a watch.

I highly recommend pulling up her wikipedia entry, it is a hell of a read.

One of the last true Hollywood stars to go.

She saved her Heroin addicted kids from the Manson Family by moving them to Ireland, where they both kicked the habit.
That's... better than most movies.

I believe she was widely considered to be the last golden age star.

Is anyone going to investigate her passing?
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
