Angela Lansbury, a versatile actor who wowed generations of fans as a murderous baker, a singing teapot, a Soviet spy and a small-town sleuth among a host of other memorable roles, died Tuesday, her family announced.

She was 96.

“The children of Dame Angela Lansbury are sad to announce that their mother died peacefully in her sleep at home in Los Angeles at 1:30 AM today, Tuesday, October 11, 2022, just five days shy of her 97th birthday," her family said in a statement.

My wife will be sad about Lansbury’s death. She enjoyed stories about Cabot Cove, the town with the highest murder rate in America.

Remembered for Murder She wrote, but her movie roles were great.

Two of her lesser-known roles, but among my favorites were in State of Union, and The Harvey Girls.

RIP

The was the first movie I rented from Netflix when they were a DVD-only outfit. Such a good choice.

One of my favorites and is my single favorite in it's genre. IMO it's better than other movies it's frequently unfavorably compared to like Mary Poppins because the 2 leads seem to be actual real people, not some cardboard stand-in avatars, or overly young-looking women frequently cast opposite overly old male leads.

Instead it's two fortysomethings, both self-absorbed in their own way, a conniver/huckster vs. someone so clueless they don't even know how to do life. And David Tomlinson not cast as the bad guy??? Seeming like real people as opposed to archetypes, though Lansbury kind of starts out that way, makes the movie more involving, IMO.

RIP Ms. Lansbury. One of a kind.

A fine performer who had what it took to go the distance. She set the bar high.

RIP MS Lansbury

Absolutely. I think that was her best movie role ever.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

...Cabot Cove, the town with the highest murder rate in America.

I think it might be the highest murder rate IN THE WORLD.
