Gladys Cooper, a Pictorial…

The What a Character! blogathon hosted by Aurora of Once Upon a Screen, Kellee of Outspoken and Freckled and Paula of Paula’s Cinema Club ran from November 9 to 11, and  my tribute to Gladys Cooper is up at my other (primary) blog, The Lady Eve’s Reel Life. This post is a pictorial tribute to her.

Best known for her performance as Bette Davis’s monstrous mother in Now, Voyager, Cooper enjoyed a long, varied career in the public eye – as an actress she was honored with Oscar, Emmy and Tony nominations.
