Angela Lansbury died, much more than the protagonist of

Caracas.- A few days before her 97th birthday, actress Angela Lansbury has witnessed her own death, which, luckily, is not the result of any crime. The London interpreter investigated during 264 chapters, between 1984 and 1996, dozens of murders, which coincidentally were always committed near where her character was, the mystery novel writer Jessica Fletcher.

Born in London on October 16, 1925, Angela Lansbury had a much richer career than public memory suggests. She was a star of the stage and of the cinema. After three unsuccessful nominations for the Oscar, in 2014 she was awarded the honorary award. On stage she fared even better, as she won five Tony Awards, the last of which was when she was 82 years old. She triumphed when she was young, she continued to do so in her maturity and did not stop reaping successes in her third and fourth years. That is why it is so unfair to reduce her trajectory to a ‘simple’ series. She also got six Golden Globes, an Olivier and a Grammy. She only missed the Emmy, for which she was nominated no less than 18 times.

Angela Lansbury’s career spanned seven decades and excelled in both very diverse genres. Since she was not pretty, she seemed condemned to secondary roles in a world as unfair as Hollywood, but her talent went beyond appearances. ‘Luz que agoniza’ (1944) marked her dazzling premiere at the cinema, alongside Ingrid Bergman and as the servant of Charles Boyer’s twisted character. Directed by the great George Cukor, it was a candidate for the golden statuette, which was snatched from it by Ethel Barrymore for ‘A Heart in Danger’, but it secured a contract with Metro that gave it stability and the possibility of abandoning its job as a cosmetics saleswoman. in a big warehouse.

His second film was the stupendous ‘Fire of Youth’, shot that same year, and the following year he appeared in ‘The Picture of Dorian Grey’, his second attempt to win an Oscar. Few performers have had such a promising breakthrough in the seventh art. The third assault occurred in another very different and no less magnificent film, ‘The Manchurian Candidate’ (1962), by John Frankenheimer.
