Talk about a living legend!  Today's feature has done it all as far as the entertainment industry goes.  Whether you are talking about movies, television, Broadway, or probably about anything else you can mention, this woman has done it!  On this date in 1925, Angela Lansbury was born.  And she is still living!  And she is not slowing down any time soon.  She still performs on stage and is scheduled to star in Driving Miss Daisy on stage next year!

Her first movie was Gaslight, and she is also well-known as Jessica Fletcher on Murder, She Wrote (my first exposure to her as I was growing up!).  She was born in London but came to New York City in 1940 right before the London Blitz.  Her list of awards is just too numerous to list here.

Here's one you and your children will probably recognize.
