Video: Angela Lansbury on her first film, Gaslight '44

While I’m under the weather I’m taking a little breather but I wanted to share this video I found of Angela Lansbury recalls making her first film, Gaslight (1944). She earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination, which is amazing to me, as she was just 17 years old when the movie’s shoot began. Lansbury is TCM”s Star of the Month and this film is tonight’s #TCMParty, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST. Join the party by watching and tweeting with the hashtag #TCMParty. Hope to see you there!

    1. Thanks for stopping by T! I was never really aware of her career before Murder, She Wrote until a couple of days ago when I started looking at the TCM schedule…of course I knew she had played the mother in The Manchurian Candidate…but that’s really the only movie. She was really sassy in Gaslight, I was pretty surprised. A friend of mine used to always say, “If you go to dinner at someone’s house, and Angela Lansbury is there…RUN!” But there is definitely more to her than that 🙂

      1. what a funny phrase! that made me laugh. Yeah, I think I would too! no doubt! 🙂

        I saw another movie of hers a long time ago. I don’t remember anything about it except that it was b&w and she was looking for something on a ship, ended up that the anchor was the gold she was looking for, only the anchor had been painted over to avoid suspicion. Thats all i remember. have NO idea what movie it was. haha

        1. I don’t think I’ve seen that movie. The painted-over part reminds me of The Maltese Falcon, but of course she wasn’t in that. Hmm…I’m curious now.

What do you think? Inquiring minds want to know...
