I was talking to some friends last week about how I don’t want to imagine a world without Maggie Smith in it. I cannot count the number of times she has made me smile or ignited a giggle fit since I first saw her in A Room With A View when I was a kid (still a favorite!). Now I’ve suddenly realized that she has so many performances that I have never seen and I’m certainly not doing myself any favors by staying in the dark. Another resolution for New Year–WATCH MORE MAGGIE SMITH! Does anyone have any favorites? I’d love suggestions!
I love these photos of Dame Maggie Smith from her performance in a 1972 BBC Play of the Month, The Millionairess, by George Bernard Shaw. I’ve seen the 1960 version with Sophia Loren, but didn’t realize Smith had filmed a version as well. It looks like The Millionairess is available to watch on YouTube in 11 parts, but the poor quality would drive me bananas. I think I might check the local video stores and local library first–or splurge on the DVD!
