Angela Lansbury has been in show business for over 50 years, so condensing her life and times into a short paragraph for a Celebrity Birthday of the Day entry is a daunting task to say the least. She started her career off on the Broadway stage, appearing in shows such as Hamlet and Sweeney Todd, then moved into film and television, appearing in such movies as National Velvet, Bedknobs and Broomsticks and The Manchurian Candidate, while also lending her voice to Beauty and the Beast, The Last Unicorn, and Anastasia. She starred in the television series Murder, She Wrote for twelve seasons and has won five Tony Awards and six Golden Globes, and has been nominated for three Academy Awards and nineteen Emmys! And y’know, I never thought I’d say this, but in her younger years, Angela Lansbury was totally hot. Just look at that beauty in the photo! Lansbury turns 86 today.
