ROSALIND RUSSELL ~ DYNAMITE ACTRESS




















">WHAT'S MY LINE?



Last night on TV, Turner Movie Classics played both AUNTIE MAME and GYPSY starring the fabulous ROSALIND RUSSELL. My favorite film of hers was always THE WOMEN, where her comedic talents were displayed to the hilt. In 1942 she played in a film called MY SISTER EILEEN, and then in 1953 she played the same role in the hit Broadway show called WONDERFUL TOWN, and won the Tony Award for her starring role. If there is one thing ROSALIND RUSSELL was, it was versatile.



THE WOMEN



The middle of seven children, she was named after the S.S. Rosalind at the suggestion of her father. She was a wonderful woman in a wonderful town.

I was just watching several of her movies the other day on TCM. She has to be my all time favorite. She was so beautiful and so funny. I love her.
