Happy Birthday Angela Lansbury -- 95 yrs Old

"Jessica Fletcher" is 95 yrs old today! I love her, the films she has been in, and most of all Murder She Wrote. She was perfectly cast in that role.

Good for her for making it to 95 yrs. It must be that fresh air in Cabot Cove, Maine and all that jogging she did that made her so healthy as to live this long. 😄 May she have many more birthdays.

She has had a very long and successful career in movies, stage and TV.  Happy Birthday!

 

She was memorable in the original The Manchurian Candidate.

@Pearley  - I love Angela Lansbury in Murder She Wrote.  Like you said, she was perfectly cast in that role.  Also enjoyed her in Blue Hawaii, playing Elvis Presley's mother.  We share the same first name!

 

May she have many more happy birthdays!

Happy Birthday to Angela🌹

 

Regarding Jessica Fletcher, I've wondered, why Jess didn't come under suspicion, as a clever serial killer? I mean, she wrote murder mysteries, and, the woman couldn't go anywhere, without, as least one person, being murdered! 

How suspicious would that be?

She was a standout, right from the start.   From "Gaslight",  "The Picture of Dorian Gray",  "The State of the Union",  all the way through "The Manchurian Candidate" and beyond.

 

So versatile-- stock villainess, ingenue, mature temptress, scheming political aspirant, sociopath, lovable and quirky sleuth.   A fabulous career.

@oznell. With a very long career in the theater as well as film and television.

@SuhseK. Jessica F was accused by law enforcement of being the murderer in a couple of episodes (and even jailed for a while for committing the murder in one I can think of) although not episodes that took place in Cabot Cove where Amos Tupper and Mort knew her character was too upright to suspect her.
