I realize she had to go sometime, but damn. Can't think of a bad performance from her. Godspeed.


The English-born daughter of an Irish actress, she was just 18 when she landed her first movie role, as Charles Boyer’s cheeky Cockney servant in the thriller “Gaslight” (1944), a precocious debut that brought her a contract with MGM and an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress. She received a second Oscar nomination in 1946, for her supporting performance as a dance-hall girl in “The Picture of Dorian Gray.”

She was a card as well as a marvel. 

One of my favorite Lansbury moments is from the very beginning of her film career, when she played Sibyl Vane in "The Picture of Dorian Gray." She's the perfect image of innocence, soon to be destroyed. Isn't she the sweetest thing?
