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.
