Anyone Here a Major Fan of Marie Windsor or know of one?


Recommended Posts

Hey, haven't posted in a while but I'm looking for anyone who  regards themselves highly as self proclaimed Marie Windsor fans. I have something that may very well be of interest to them which I will eventually disclose. Don't want to keep y'all in suspense but I'm looking for some kind of response. Who doesn't like the Narrow Margin right?

Anyway let me know.

I'm definitely a fan. She's great in noir and westerns. I love her performance in HELLS HALF ACRE. And she has a fun cameo at the end of THE BEAUTIFUL BLONDE OF BASHFUL BEND, which is one of the few times I've seen her photographed in glorious Technicolor.

Billed, I haven't seen that; looks amazing. Sorry Joe I can't at the moment. Don't spoil it for me I'm gonna go watch the scene. Anyway the reason I was asking was because aside from a talented actress who goes under the radar she was also a talented artist working in enamels and ceramics. A freind of mine came into possession of one of the elusive bowls and it so happened to be a gift to none other than the "lovely Bridges" marked on the verso and signed in her lovely signature. So if anyone is a Lloyd Bridges fan or just a fan of rare memorabilia; remember she actually manufactured this not like other gifts that celebrities buy and engrave for one and other. I have only found one other one like this if you google "Marie Windsor Enamel Bowl" that one is red, my friends' is blue and truly a work of art. It would be perfect for holding things like paperwork, mail etc or just as a center piece.

I wasn't sure of etiquette of posting something for sale on here but if anyone would like photographs and or know of someone that would be interested in something like this; I'd be glad to assist. Regardless, if you want to just see the thing I'll get some photos. On this note, I found an interesting piece of history on etsy right now a solid gold pipe tobacco tamp tool gifted from Eleanor Powell to musical director George Stoll(composed tornado scene Wizard of Oz)

Don't know if CigarJoe smokes pipes as well.  ;) Anyway let me know

Just as an FYI he indicated that he'd be willing to part with it for slightly over $400; which IMHO(can't believe I finally used it ;) ) I'd call a bargain. I would buy it from him but I'm already quite overstretched if you know what I mean.

We seem to have gotten off the subject a little, but I'm also a fan of Marie Windsor.  She gave us so many great moments on the screen.  TopBilled mentioned "Hell's Half Acre' and that's one that I've always remembered.  It has a great cast, and she really shines in this one.  She also made quite an impact in "The Killing".

I recently watched "The Killing" again, and I had forgotten just how great she was in it.  A truly under-rated actress.

Just saw Windsor on Charlie Angels in 1979 when she was 60.   She looked really nice.

James, you brought back to mind an episode of Perry Mason that she appeared in.  She had silver gray hair (possibly a wig) and in one scene Raymond Burr referred to her as "very striking".  That, I feel, was a very nice tribute to her.

Windsor was in 4 Mason episodes over the years.    I remember that one you mention.   Burr was right.  Windsor was very striking.

I haven't seen her in that much. I remember her most from the TV movie Salem's Lot (1979) and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy. 

As noted by Top Billed,  Windsor was mostly known for her noir roles and westerns,   but she did have a nice evil-women role in the comedy Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (and these type of serious actors in a camp comedy,  help keep them grounded so I always welcome them).

Saw your post of Thelma Tood and it was great.      Of course now I have to wonder;  Who is Rudy?

Rudolph Valentino. He was an actor in the 1920's.

Meant to mention this sooner--

There's a very good print of NO MAN'S WOMAN (1955) on YouTube.

It's a Republic noir in which Marie plays a vengeful woman that becomes a murder victim. She's killed off halfway through, but continues to turn up in flashbacks when the police question the suspects. 

It's one of the rare times when she was top billed...and she's great as always.

Became a fan after seeing her in Narrow Margin.  She was very good in the Perry Mason episodes.  An unusual one, but good is Swamp Women in 1956.  It is in color.  "Touch" Connors plays the male in it.

Yes,  Windsor was very good in the 4 Perry Mason episodes she was in (all 2 years apart):

as Linda Griffith in "The Case of the Daring Decoy" (1958)

as Flavia Pierce in "The Case of the Madcap Modiste" (1960)

as Edith "Edie" Morrow in "The Case of the Tarnished Trademark" (1962)

as Mrs. Helen Reed in "The Case of the Wednesday Woman" (1964)

Here last T.V. roles were in another crime drama;  Murder, She Wrote (two episodes, 1987 and 1991).

Don't mess with this dame!

Thanks, saves me the trouble of looking them up.  May have to pull out the DVD's and watch them all again.
