Rosalind Russell died 35 years ago today, on November 28, 1976. This seems rather significant because 35 years is a long time. Sometimes I can’t believe that she had already been dead just over 13 years when I was born. I was clearly born in the wrong era, but I am glad I was able to get to know her through her films. I am very appreciative for TCM for providing me with most of her films, as well as DVDs that have already been released. More and more seem to be coming out on DVD recently, and that’s a great thing!
I have not been able to watch a film in her honor today, but I hope to watch one soon–at her comedic best because this is how she is best remembered. A friend of mine suggested A Woman of Distinction because it’s her favorite one so far, and now I kind of want to watch that one, too. It’s hilarious with all the physical comedic stunts (which I have always loved–hello, I Love Lucy fan here!) and of course, I love the eventual romance that develops in the film.
Anyway, on this day, I wanted to share a video with you all that my dear, dear friend Irina made in honor of this day today. It is a video to remember Roz and it is dedicated to me–how sweet is that! It is actually the third Roz video that has been dedicated to me… haha! 🙂
Enjoy–I think it is really lovely!
