We – and I am referring to most of our “Senior Reporter” readers – will always associate Angela Lansbury with her iconic TV mystery series, “Murder, She Wrote,” and
her role as the fictional writer and whodunit sleuth Jessica Fletcher.

However, how many of us know the vibrant, highly successful 95-year-old actress
whose professional career was as complicated as her life away from stage and screen?

It’s true: anybody who has lived long enough to remember the TV sitcom about the
quaint neighborhood bar in Boston where “everyone knows your name” will forever equate Ted Danson with the quippy bartender in “Cheers,” one of the most iconic shows
ever produced in the history of television.

And Danson admits as the above quote illustrates, the multi-Emmy-winning, 11-
year running series was the springboard to stardom for the 73-year-old actor.

The word “breakthrough” is reserved for people and things that change the status quo forever. For instance, the Internet was a breakthrough for how
we communicate and conduct research. Electric cars changed the way we transport
ourselves without relying on oil and gas. Barack Obama made history by becoming the first African-American President of the United States.

Similarly, in the entertainment world, Viola Davis has broken the glass ceiling and ethnic boundaries by becoming the first black woman to achieve the “Triple Crown of Acting” – winning Academy Awards for film, Tony Awards for the stage, and Emmy Awards for TV

In the history of Hollywood, you can count on one hand how many child actors managed to weather the transition to becoming a full-grown movie star.

And it so happens that both of his parents were in show business – his father was actor Neil “Bing” Russell and his mother is dancer, Louise Julia Russell. His father and sister had a lot to do with his childhood.

For most of us who grew up in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the memories of flower children, hippies, Woodstock, and tiedye remain like tattoos. The same goes for the music of the era, including the unmistakable harmonic voice of one of the most colorful and talented singers of then and now — Carly Simon.

Known as “The Boss” to his fans, fellow musicians, and just about everyone around the world, Bruce Springsteen continues to bring his indelible style of rock music to the universe with passion and energy most singers at age 71 wish they still had.

If I asked you who is the undisputed modern queen of country music and you answered Dolly Parton, you would be 100 percent correct. You also
would be right if you added a few other descriptors, like an award-winning actress, songwriter, musician, and entrepreneur.

Nobody in the history of show business lights up the stage like Dolly, with her curly blonde hair, voluptuous figure, her winning smile, insatiable
sense of humor and humility, and most of all, her unmistakable voice.
