Angela Lansbury Becomes a Dame — The Queen’s Honours List 2014

Posted on January 1, 2014 at 3:42 pm

The magnificent Angela Lansbury will become a Dame (female equivalent of a knighthood), announced today as a part of Queen Elizabeth II’s annual honours (British spelling) list.  From her earliest appearances as the insolent maid in “Gaslight” and Elizabeth Taylor’s older sister in “National Velvet” to her performance as the icy villain in “The Manchurian Candidate” and in the Broadway musicals “Mame” and “Sweeney Todd,” she has been a fascinating presence with brilliant work in every genre, even the cozy mysteries of “Murder She Wrote.”  Cheers to the new Dame Angela!
