Born on this day in 1925, Angela Lansbury was born in her native London. Though best known today for her role as mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote or as an animate singing teapot in Beauty and the Beast, she began her career as a refugee. Her family emigrated to the United States during the early years of World War II, where she trained in an acting program.
Her early years in the acting business were often characterized by her being cast in very small bit roles, still managing to impress critics even if the film or show wasn't all that great.
The biggest and still widely praised role of her early career was as the mother of the titular Manchurian Candidate, a veteran who had been brainwashed to become an assassin. This performance earned her a Oscar nomination and a place in history as one of the great villans of film.
During the years after, she would continue playing small roles on film and TV (like personal favorite Blue Hawaii) while starring in acclaimed Broadway shows. She had some starring roles in the pre-Murder She Wrote era, including as an oddly proto-Harry Potter character in the delightfully alliterative Disney film Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
Her most memorable role is definitely as the amiable crime solver Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote. As a popular crime novelist and widow, Jessica found herself drawn into a disproportionate number of grisly murders on a seemingly daily basis. From her home in Cabot Cove (50 percent higher murder rate than Honduras) she unraveled mysteries for 12 TV seasons, even crossing paths with Tom Selleck's Magnum PI on a few occasions.
