Angela Lansbury is a three-time Oscar nominee and a five-time Tony winner, and she’s still going strong. The legend of the stage and screen is known to generations of fans for her memorable film roles in The Manchurian Candidate, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and Beauty and the Beast, her stage turns in Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, and Mame, and her twelve seasons as mystery writer and amateur sleuth Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote. We’ll hear her one and only appearance on Suspense – “A Thing of Beauty” (originally aired on CBS on May 29, 1947) – and we’ll hear her in a dramatic performance from Stars Over Hollywood (“The Experiment,” originally aired on CBS on May 24, 1952).
