Happy Birthday! Ann Blyth turns 84!

Today, actress and singer Ann Blyth celebrates her 84th birthday! Her sweet personality and beautiful voice graced the silver screen for 13 years and, thanks to home video, her talents still continue to entertain fans today. Although she is best remembered for playing Joan Crawford's spiteful daughter in Mildred Pierce, this role was a brilliant piece of casting against type. Ann Blyth was known as the screen's 'little lady'. Very kind, down-to-earth and a devout Catholic, she always insisted that family was more important than success.

She happens to be one of my very favorite actresses. Lately, we have been watching some more of her films, which has made me an even bigger fan. :o) I'll Never Forget You, Thunder on the Hill, The World in His Arms, and The King's Thief are some of the standouts. In honor of her birthday, here is a hi-res image from each of these films.

We just got Top O' the Morning, a film that she made with Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald about the theft of the Blarney Stone! We have been waiting years to find a copy, and can't wait to see it. Ann, Bing, Barry, and Ireland can't be anything but fabulous! So, thank you, Ann Blyth, for sharing your talents!
