Happy Birthday Angela. I watch every night at 11:00pm on the Hallmark Channel.  She is a very versatile actress.  I love when she plays her cousin on the show.

As soon as I saw her name I remembered something she said.

 

I'm paraphrasing, "I never found it difficult getting jobs because people always thought I was older than I really was.  I've looked the same way for many years.  Even when I was much younger I was playing grandmas."

Loved her, and loved the three movies you mention.  Oldies but goodies. 

 

As the maid in Gaslight, she was the perfect "tart."  Such an angelic face, however.  And the picture you posted is amazing!

 

The first time I saw "The Picture of Dorian Gray" I was really creeped out!  Such a timeless story.

 

"The Manchurian Candidate" is another that made my skin crawl.  Cannot watch it anymore!

@Witchy Woman, Hurd Hatfield, who broke her heart in Dorian Gray, was in at least one Murder She Wrote which was on not too long ago. Similarly, her co-star in the play, Sweeney Todd, had a recurring role in MSR as Michael Haggerty, the spy. Jerry Orbach also had a recurring role and I figure she must have known him from the theater also. I think she took care of her friends.

The guy who played Michael Haggarty is the grandfather on Blue Bloods.

Re: Happy Birthday Angela Lansbury -- 95 yrs Old

I watch Murder She Wrote every morning, and several episodes each weekend.  Saturdays, I believe.

 

Anyway, my mom and dad loved that show, too.  I often recall my dad calling out to my mom: 'Murder She Wrote' is starting'.  

 

 

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

Such a sweet, simple memory.  I'm sure it makes you smile when you think of it.

 

Thanks for sharing.
