| Let's hear it for Dame Rosemary Harris (She should become a Dame)
I caught only the last hour of this play taped for PBS. This play is well written and somewhat outdated but it displays the enormous, beautiful talent of Dame Rosemary Harris (She's not damed yet but she should be)she's beautiful and very talented. She's one of the great divas of the theatre overall. Then there is Eva LaGallienne who is one of the great acting divas of all time. Eva and Rosemary should have earned Emmys for their roles as mother and daughter. They were totally into characters. It's worth $30 to order it now. It wasn't until I recently read more about Eva LaGallienne who should have had more roles in her lifetime that brought her fame and happiness. She was respected for her caliber in the theater but it never transferred to film or television because of her sexual orientation. She never denied who she was attracted too and she should be remembered that the true passion of her life was truly the stage. That's how I will remember Eva's legacy is that the stage is where she belonged most.
