Hal B. Wallis ?

There are so many movies that Hal Wallis was involved with that I love  it would take all day to name all of them. Here are just a few,  Casablanca,  The Adventures of Robin Hood, Now Voyager, Love Letters,  Yankee Doodle Dandy and tons more

Yes, he was an amazing producer and Jack Warner, of course, didn't appreciate him enough. 

Lav, Happy Friday. It's all yours.....

You're missing 1 more actress, there were 4, besides Angela. Question was what 4 actresses had recurring roles on the tv show. Angela was the star, it was not a ecurring role. Get the other actress and your answer will be correct

 

Wasn't Margaret O'Brien in that too?

Is it Julie Adams, who was in "The Creature From The Black Lagoon"?

Thank you Miles,  I was about to give another clue.  Ruth Roman owned the beauty salon in Cabot Cove. Julie Adam's, Kathryn Grayson, Gloria de Haven and of course Angela were regular customers. They would all appear together in episodes. Julie Adams played a gossipy Real estate agent  although they would all gossip together. Julie Adams appeared in 10 episodes as the same character.  They all had recurring roles and each played the same character . Gloria aged the best and looked great. A lot of fun seeing Ruth Roman, Gloria de Haven,  Kathryn Grayson, Julie Adams and Angela Lansbury together. All  definitely classic Golden Age actresses.

Karma girl gets the thread and Thank You Miles for finishing up the question.

Thanks lavender and Miles.

This movie was selected by the Library of Congress for film preservation in the National Film Registry the same year that a centennial celebration happened.

Name the movie, year and what was celebrating a centennial year.

The movie was the 1955 film "Oklahoma" and this honor was bestowed in 2007, the 100th anniversary of Oklahoma's being granted statehood.

Thanks Miles

Next

This actresses' career was on a downward path. A terrible scandal she was involved in happened a year before her next film she starred in

 The film was a hit and her career was revived. It was a late 1950's film. 

Actress,  the film and extra credit for telling us about that scandal  ???

I remember this, and it's the only thing I can think of that might fit.

Lana Turner was at the top of the world  when she was nominated for the Oscar for "Peyton Place". Lana didn't win the Oscar for best actress at the 1958 ceremony. Later that night her live-in lover, Johnny Stompanato, a mobster, became violently angry with her because she didn't let him escort her to the ceremony.

His anger turned to threats of violence, and her daughter, Cheryl Crane, came to her aid. The teenager ended up stabbing him to death with a kitchen knife.

Lana starred in two nondescript films later that year and coupled with the scandal, her career was falling apart.

But in 1959 she rose again like Lazarus in Ross Hunter's "Imitation of Life", one of the biggest hits of her career. 

I read Cheryl Crane's autobiography and it was well-written. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested Golden Era Hollywood stories.
