Not really an AM fan.  However, I really enjoyed her in this movie/mini series called "The Two Mrs. Grenvilles."  I think it was based on a real life crime.

@Jordan2  - thanks for the alert.  I'll set my DVR for Viva Las Vegas - haven't seen it in a while.   I saw Ann-Margret in Vegas in the mid 70's and enjoyed her show.

 

@Mz iMac  - I remember The Two Mrs. Grenvilles -she was good in that also.

I am not the biggest Ann Margaret fan in the world but I did always enjoy her. 

I admired her devotion and love of her husband Roger Smith. They were married for over 50 years. I saw interviews with her and she always had such loving words to say about him. Through his illness she was always seen by his  side, helping him, and always had a beautiful smile.

I'm not a huge fan but I loved learning (via Mad Men) that she performed the opening/closing song on a treadmill in one take.  That is so incredible!  Also my late father had a major crush on her LOL.

Didn't care for her 'baby' voice. Not a very flattering pic of the both of them.

Glad I got my hair cut today. Think she and Elvis hooked up.

Roger Smith was extremely ill .....it's a little hard to look your Hollywood Best when you are near death. I think she looks great.

Thank you for the heads-up, @Jordan2 

 

I also really liked her in the Grumpy/Grumpier Old Men movies.  She didn't have a whole lot to do, but she was charming.
