As this is posted, it’s the 93rd birthday of Angela Lansbury. As you’ll know, she’s had a long and successful career on stage and in film. And that includes several crime fiction productions such as Gaslight (she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work on that film). She also took the role of Eleanor Iselin in John Frankenheimer’s 1962 thriller The Manchurian Candidate. Since that time, she’s had many other roles.
For instance, Agatha Christie fans will know that she portrayed Salome Otterbourne in John Guillermin’s 1978 adaptation of Christie’s Death on the Nile. Two years later, she took the role of Miss Marple in Guy Hamilton’s 1980 version of The Mirror Crack’d. She is, clearly, no stranger to on-screen crime fiction.
She is, perhaps, best-known for her role as Jessica Fletcher in the 1984-1996 US television series
