Tony-man:

A great lady, who didn't get famous by marrying "a Tom Cruise" or dating "a Brad Pitt" or smashing papperazzi cameras, or being seen drunk and staggering out of a bar.

She became famous just for being an excellent actress!

Recomended viewing: I've seen THE MIRACLE WORKER, THE GRADUATE, THE ELEPHANT MAN, FATSO, TORCH SONG TRILOGY, 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD, and GARBO TALKS. I liked all of these films.

I never saw THE TURNING POINT but I heard it was pretty good.

NOT recomended!: TO BE OR NOT TO BE. (avoid this turkey)

fatman:

She also had a small but well done performance in 1993's "Malice", as the mother of Nicole Kidman's character. The movie wasn't for everyone's taste, and could have been better, but I enjoyed it.

And if I--at my current age--were to hit on her at the age she was when she did "The Graduate" I'd be called a dirty old man. And Mel Brooks would probably attack me in the shower with a rolled up newspaper.
