Beautiful pictures PT. Aggie's features remind me in a way of Aline MacMahon.

Going through your thread here, Professional Tourist. Wonderful. Gale Sondergaard and Anne Revere and Judith Anderson and your "Aggie" were quite a quartet in film history. To me they played this...sort of type that I'd describe as handsome, sternly beautiful; frustrated; evil; patrician; vulnerable chameleons. Ha! They were all sisters under the mink.

Loved the clip of "Dark Passage" one of my favorite films. The twist got me! I thought Moorhead was venomously sexy as Madge.

"Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" will be coming on today on the Fox Movie Channel at 1:30pm.

Hope all the Agnes Moorehead fans caught "The Woman in White" on TCM. It's being repeated Wednesday, Nov. 4. Agnes plays the downtrodden wife of Sydney Greenstreet. With Gig Young, Alexis Smith, and Eleanor Parker in a double role, it's worth seeing.

Thanks for the heads up King R, I meant to tape the last showing, but fell asleep and forgot.

I have such greater affection for Agnes as I've discovered her pre-Bewitched work and, even looking at that show, she gains a greater appeal. That TWILIGHT ZONE episode has her bedraggled, unkempt, shot in such unflattering lighting, conditions, cramped, dirty-looking sets. And she is positively magnificent in it. From the first time I'd ever seen it (as a wee lad), I was cheering for her, then wonderfully stunned by the ending. But I still cheered for Agnes. I want to say something like sounds odd, but "she aged SO well."
