IN MEMORIUM


Teresa Wright (1918-2005). She passed away this past March 6, but I heard nothing of it in the news.

She was one of my favorites from the black and white era, starring perhaps most famously as the outspoken Carol Beldon in the 1942 classic "Mrs. Miniver". My favorite of her performances, though, is in Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt."

Beautiful. Classy. Intelligent. Witty. And a striking contrast to the trash we have today parading around on screen.
