Rosalind Russell (June 4, 1907 – November 28, 1976) was an American actress of stage and screen, perhaps best known for her role as a fast-talking newspaper reporter in the Howard Hawks screwball comedy His Girl Friday, as well as the role of Mame Dennis in the film Auntie Mame.

Watched Gypsy Rose Lee yesterday on Mother's Day. I love Rosalind Russell and of course Natalie Wood. It made me cry. I guess because I had such a great mother not like Rose but as great as Rose in her own way. And my mom took me to see this movie when I was very young.
Turned on the TV just in time for Rosalind Russell to get warmed up for Rose's Turn. What a great weekend to be ***
Greetings from a former English major who invites you to brush up your Shakespeare, as we prepare to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the most famous writer...well, possibly ever. On Saturday, April 19, our "Those Were the Days" program presents an afternoon of "The Bard on the Air," with radio productions of "Much Ado About Nothing" (starring Leslie Howard and Rosalind Russell), "The Taming of the Shrew" (starring John Barrymore), and a two-part production of "Othello" starring Richard Widmark in the role of Iago—plus, there may be a surprise or two (and no debate over who wrote what). The play's the thing beginning at 1:00 pm CST on WDCB (90.9 FM in Chicagoland; wdcb.org everywhere). Then on Sunday, our sister show Radio's Golden Age adds a little Bard of its own as James Stewart appears in "Hamlet" (well, sort of) as part of his short-lived western series, "The Six Shooter." We'll also have an Easter-time broadcast of "The Hallmark Playhouse" and comedy with George Burns and Gracie Allen. Join us a ...

Here's a SJS memory.Class of 67.On All Saints Day a group of us went to the RKO Lincoln in downtown Trenton to see "The "Trouble with Angels" starring Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell. once inside we were surprised to see the majority of our nuns attending and sitting in the balcony.when the movie was over and we were leaving the theater, a lot of the nuns were visibly upset and crying...that was the very first time I actually thought...well what do you know.
So I finally caught up with the Rosalind Russell movie version of "Gypsy". How sad that such a great musical got such an indifferently made cinematic rendering. It's like the director had no ideas whatsoever. Just pointed the camera at the action and said "do whatever". The only things that come through looking good are Karl Malden (yet all his character's singing is cut) and the scenery (although it's probably inappropriately "big", but at least it has some sort of artistic point of view).

OLL/ECHO PARK TRIVIA: What Echo Park resident and actress teamed up with screen legends Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell in the 1966 Movie "The Trouble With Angels"? ANSWER: June Harding (who lived in Echo Park) played a wonderful role in the 1966 movie "The Trouble With Angels". She played the clumsy, dim-witted and funny Rachel Deverey, the sidekick of Hayley Mills who was terrific as the rebellious Mary Clancy. The pair were great together in a story line of Catholic schoolgirls always taking chances and always getting caught by the ever-present Mother Superior (played by screen legend Rosalind Russell) of the strict "St. Francis Academy For Girls" Catholic boarding school . Ironically, this was June's first and last movie role. She did have a few other television roles between 1966 and 1970 but decided to dedicate her life to her other passion and became a successful artist and today lives in Blue Hill, Maine where she is an accomplished painter/artist.

Additional Broadway credits include Here's Love (1963), Me Jack, You Jill (closed during previews in 1976), and a 1984 revival of Noël Coward's Design for Living Lisa Kirk's only feature film work was done behind-the-scenes, dubbing all of Rosalind Russell's singing in Gypsy It was rumored that she had also dubbed Lucille Ball's singing voice in Mame.
Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell give way to Jacques Tati this Friday. Tati's 4th film and most daring. Just as funny too but in a... different sort of way. Come see it £7/£6 concession and of course if you are a CCCE member it's less :)
Check out these noirs coming on TCM today -- The Velvet Touch, with Rosalind Russell and Sidney Greenstreet, and Cause for Alarm, starring Loretta Young. They're worth your time!
After a long day at work I'm happy to be home curling up on the couch with a fleece blanket and my dog Eliza, while enjoying a cup of hot coffee and watching His Girl Friday with Carey Grant and Rosalind Russell. Life's not perfect, but I do enjoy moments like this.
Speaking of Rosalind Russell...I once called her Rosalind Franklin. It was weird
What if Ethel Merman had been called in to dub for Rosalind Russell in "Gypsy"? The answer is: I have way too much time on my hands... =) One interesting dis...
My Sister Eileen is a 1942 American comedy film directed by Alexander Hall and starring Rosalind Russell, Brian Aherne and Janet Blair. The screenplay by Joseph A. Fields and Jerome Chodorov is based on their 1940 play of the same title, which was inspired by a series of autobiographical short stories by Ruth McKenney originally published in The New Yorker. The supporting cast features George Tobias, Allyn Joslyn, Grant Mitchell, Gordon Jones and the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard).
Michael Miller just sent me a Maca-Reindeer christmas card video (set to Macarena) featuring himself dancing with Angela Landsbury, Meryl Streep, Rosalind Russell and Bette Davis. I mean...my friends are the best.
As many of you no doubt know, Vivien Leigh was Natalie's favorite actress and A Streetcar Named Desire was her favorite film. It has been said that, although she had been acting under her mother's authority since the age of four, it was seeing this movie that made her want to become a serious actress, and she searched the rest of her life for a chance to play Blanche or a role she considered to be of equal caliber. She watched this movie so many times that she had every word memorized. The two roles that she felt came close, for her, were Alva Starr from This Property is Condemned and Maggie the cat from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. My friend Desiree's page Rosalind Russell: Dazzling Star and Monty's classic movie page, All Good Things are doing a salute to Miss Viviene this week, and so, since she was one of the inspirations that Natalie always said made her want to be a serious actress, here is a fabulous review!
Ok, let's talk old movies. What are your favorites? I adore Auntie Mame with Rosalind Russell and Indiscreet with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. I could watch them over and over.
Okay, my number is 5. 1. My passion is writing. I stopped doing it for a long time, but then some amazing things happened, and I started again. It was like I had suddenly remembered how to breathe. 2. I am obsessed with movies from the 1940s, and I always have been. I wanted to be Irene Dunne, Greer Garson, Myrna Loy, Ingrid Bergman (don't I look Swedish?), or Rosalind Russell when I grew up. Then I realized that I might grow, but never up, so I decided I would settle for Barbara Stanwyck or Susan Hayward. Short girls needs heros, too! 3. I made my first quilt at fifteen. I still have it, but I'm going to have to cut out the memories and trash the backing. It has pieces of our play clothes in it, and several blocks were made from Aunt Mindy Pate's dresses. She was so thrilled that I was quilting that she gave me old clothes and scraps to use. I just can't part with that. She was one of my strongest and best loved female role models. 4. My favorite books as a child are still my favorite books ...
I have watched about 4000 movies over the past 8 days while I have been so incredibly sick... many of which I only saw part of or saw through a haze. There were a few, however, that I made it all the way through. Of those, the following stand out for these few-word reasons: Joy Ride: Paul Walker RIP Steve Zahn - Terrific thriller, edge of seat, great twists, believable characters, one of the best movies I The Women: 1930s screenplay w Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Joan Fontaine, Rosalind Russell and more - includes an eye popping fashion show you just cant't miss. Full of clever and timeless humor about relationships between women and women and women and men. The Yearling: No child should ever see this. WHAT THE HECK WERE THEY THINKING??? A family movie??!! First, this is possibly the most unrealistic and ridiculous depiction of a farmer ever brought to screen. Gregory Peck saying words like "vittles," and, "varmints." The acting is from the Reefer Madness school of emoting. The plot is enough to make yo ...
Just watched the movie "The Women" with Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell. I forgot how much I loved that movie.
I love films from the '30s — It's my favorite decade in Hollywood by far. Norma Shearer. Joan Crawford. Rosalind Russell.
