Rosalind Russell - Framed Picture - 12" x 16"
Catherine Rosalind Russell was an American actress, comedian, and singer.
She was known for her role as fast-talking newspaper reporter Hildy Johnson in the Howard Hawks screwball comedy His Girl Friday (1940), as well as for her portrayals of Mame Dennis in Auntie Mame (1958) and Rose in Gypsy (1962).
She was a noted comedian, and she won all five Golden Globes for which she was nominated, as well as winning a Tony Award in 1953.
She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress four times throughout her career.
In addition to her fame as a comedian, Russell was known for playing character roles, especially wealthy, dignified, ladylike women, as well as for being one of the few actresses of her time who regularly played professional women, such as judges, reporters, and psychiatrists.
She had a wide career span from the 1930s to the 1970s, and attributed her long career to the fact that, although usually playing classy and glamorous roles, she never became a sex symbol.
