So in the first of my blogathons devoted to an actress…
This honour goes to the Lovely Lee Grant star of stage and screen (and actress Dinah Manoff’s mum).
TCM CFF Tribute Lee Grant, PJ Neely
As you know I do love a good guilty pleasure, especially a disaster movie. And it was while rewatching The Swarm (1978) and Airport 77 (1977), I noticed this Oscar Winning and much nominated Actress, the lovely Lee Grant. In the latter I loved her delightful performance as the plane hit the murky depths of the Bermuda Triangle. And our heroine’s husband – played by the wonderful Christopher Lee – conveniently turned out to be a diver. And she was having an affair with
Buck Rogers Gil Gerard. And the rest is pure hokum, but so love at least one of you to review this fab movie.
And then to my joy I discovered her also in Damien: Omen II (1978) with William Holden and of course, Damien aka the seed of the Devil in this wonderful
fun horror. It was around then I asked Chris from Angelman’s Place if he wanted to join me in this tribute to this wonderful actress.
And he said yes, so.. I’m now officially inviting you to the Lovely Lee Grant Blogathon which will be held from the 20th to 23rd August 2018, with the final day for any lateRcomers due to time differences, illness or just wanting to be fashionably late (and a wee wrap up..).
