Maybe, not in the "star" category as some named, but one of my very favorites was Maureen Stapleton who grew up in my hometown of Troy, NY. Besides being a terrific actress, she was a delightful person and a big movie fan too. When I was a teenager, I worked as an usher at a local theater and when she wasn't working in a film or on Broadway, she'd come back home and would always go to the movies every time the program changed.
