The legendary actor of film and stage died today. 

I saw her on stage in San Francisco in the early 1980s in a performance of Sweeney Todd, set in Victorian London, as Mrs Lovett.  Her performance and presence on the stage was electric!  

Rest in Peace.

And here is a coin of Victoria:

Not too long ago, I watched the 1945 release of "The Picture of Dorian Grey" and it starred a very young Angela Lansbury. Like some others who have passed recently, she seemed like she would just remain around forever. I knew her mostly from television, so I was surprised when she began singing in "Dorian Grey." Now I know that she spent the greater part of her career singing.
