  1. Dame May Whitty is correct! May Whitty (1865 - 1948) spent much of her acting career on stage, but appeared in several notable films, including Night Must Fall, The Lady Vanishes, Suspicion, Mrs. Miniver, Lassie Come Home, and Gaslight. She was named a Dame Commander of the British Empire for her charitable work during World War I as well as for her contributions to the arts. Her last film was released the year she died at age 82: 1948. Whitty earned her first Oscar nomination for her supporting role in Night Must Fall and her second for her supporting role in Mrs. Miniver. The se
  2. Uh, oh. Clearly the first set of clues given was too broad. No, "I" am not the marvelous Dame Edith Evans, but here is another clue: The movie for which I received my second Oscar nomination brought an Oscar to one of my co-stars in the same category. In other words, I lost out to a lady who won for her performance in the same movie for which I was nominated. Also, while I did not live quite as long as Dame Edith, the age at which I joined my ancestors would certainly have been considered a ripe old age at the time. I died well before Dame Edith's death in 1976.
  3. Okay, here goes nothing again ... Born in Britain, I received two academy award nominations. The second nomination was for my role in a movie that helped to lessen the Hollywood stereotype that England was a bastion of snobbery and social privilege. I enjoyed a long film and stage career until my death at a ripe old age. BTW, I am female. Who am I? Message was edited by: Me, because spell check is good. pintorini
  4. You are: Barry Norton? Classic horror movie: Spanish version of Dracula.
  5. Shazam!!! The master!!! Named that tune in only one note!!! I guess I needn't have worried that it was too hard ...
  6. Okay, here goes nothing: I was born in Illinois and began my movie acting career at a young age. I appeared in films with several of the top stars of the day, including Loretta Young, Claudette Colbert, Burt Lancaster, and Orson Wells, but I am best known for my work in television. In particular, I starred in a TV series alongside an actress with whom I had appeared in a film more than a dozen years earlier. Who am I?
  7. I think you are Maggie Smith, who won her second Oscar (Best Supporting Actress) in 1978. The thing you have in common with the three people who won in the 3 years after you is the same initials: (Meryl Streep, Mary Steenburgen, Maureen Stapleton). Your best friend "Jude" is Judi Dench Your Oscars were for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969)--Best Actress and California Suite (1978)--Best Supporting Your Emmy was for My House in Umbria (2003)--Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie Your Tony was for Lettice and Lovage (1990)--Best Actress
