At the time of her death, Dame Angela Lansbury was one of the last surviving cinema stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Born in London, England in October 1925, she died October 11, 2022, in her Los Angles, California home, just 5 days before her ninety-seventh birthday.
Per Wikipedia: In 2013, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors voted to bestow upon her an Honorary Academy Award for her lifetime achievements in the industry. . . . and presented her with the Oscar, saying in part "Angela has been adding class, talent, beauty, and intelligence to the movies ever since" her film debut in 1944.
The Oscar statue is inscribed "To Angela Lansbury, an icon who has created some of cinema's most memorable characters inspiring generations of actors".
With more than seventy-five years of diverse and prolific roles on TV, stage, and screen, one of the most known to Baby Boomers, and one of my favorites, was her role as Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote.
“I want women my age to be represented the way they are, which is vital, productive members of society.” ~ Angela Lansbury
