Manny Pacheco (raideoman) | 18 comments I completely agree with Teresa Wright and Mary Astor.

How about:

Margaret Dumont (the Marx Brothers foil)
Beulah Bondi (pllayed James Stewart's mom 4 times)
Claire Trevor
Margaret Wycherly ("Top of the World, Ma")
Priscilla Lane (is rapidly fading from our memory)

Emmy | 8 comments I agree with you about Jesse Royce Landis , and how about Constance Collier who also played in Hitchcock films. I also remember her role as the aging actress among the young hopefuls in Stage Door.

Sandy Thelma Ritter!

message 4: by Emmy (new)

Emmy | 8 comments Always good--Thelma Ritter could steal scenes from the best-Doris Day, Grace Kelly, James Stewart, Paul and Kirk Douglas, just to name a few, but she has been honored with nominations by the Academy, so that's great.
