I Just Saw A Lucy Regular In...

Carole Cook was a seedy Broadway agent on an episode of Murder She Wrote. She, unfortunately, was neither killed nor the killer, so she wasn't given much to do.

That's just what she wanted them to think.

You're on to something. I have a theory that all the murders in the series were done by the same person. Somebody who wanted to drive Angela insane by killing everyone around her. Does anyone know what Claude was between 1984 and 1996?

Talk about just about the "perfect" movie! :blink:

 

I haven't seen The Bad & The Beautiful, but it's a sin Jean Hagen didn't win the BSActress Oscar for Singin' that year.

Gloria Grahame has shockingly little to do in The Bad and the Beautiful and it seems unbelievable that she would win the Oscar for that performance. However, Gloria had multiple films out that year that showed her range and I think her Oscar win was for her body of work for the year 1952. Regardless, Jean should have won.

Random Kathleen Freeman fact of the day: William Wyler hired Samantha Eggar for the lead in his film The Collector, but was so unhappy with her performance that he fired her soon after production began. Eggar was eventually rehired with the proviso that Kathleen Freeman coach her in the role. Eggar would go on to get an Oscar nomination for her performance.

Watched Viv on Love American Style last night. Didn't realize Paula Stewart was in Viv's segment.

Wasn't she a gypsy or fortune teller in that one? I'm remembering her with a black wig for some reason.

Catching up on some PVR'd TCM tonight I'm now watching Mrs. Parkington with Greer Garson, Walter Pidgeon, Agnes Moorehead and December Bride's own Frances Rafferty. Now at the infanticipation party scene and revelling in a young Hans Conried as an excitable Oscar Wildesque opera liaison-cum-pianist. Lol

Agnes Moorhead is just wondaful in that one. When Greer first appears as an eightysomething, her outfit looks a lot like the one Lucy's wearing in your signature.

Mary Wickes as the nurse in Now, Voyager (It seems like she was always playing nurses).

Well...she DID have that "no nonsense" act down pat! :blink:

Murder, She Wrote Season 5 Episode 6: "The Wearing of The Green"

Lucie plays a thinly veiled parody of Tyne Daly's Mary Beth Lacey. I distinctly remember the first time I saw this episode when I was little because it was the first time I ever heard anyone use the expression "Pardon my French", uttered by Lucie, no less.

 

On a side note, I'll bet my bottom dollar that the Jean Peters role of the reclusive Irish movie star was originally written for the great Mo'Hara.

I was delighted to come across Kathryn Card as a hard-ass employment agency matron in Joan Crawford's The Damned Don't Cry. :D

Came across Mrs. Trumble on The Adventures of Superman not too long ago.

 

And just seen dear old Viv get palsy walsy with Rhoda the other night. And there was a bonus - Viv's character's husband so happened to be David White (i.e. Larry Tate of Bewitched).
