    I first saw her movies in the early 50's when I was a youg teenage lad. I was struck by her beauty and immediately fell in love with her which remains to this day.(I'm now 67 yrs. young) May God continue to bless you and yours. RIP, my Dear

    Priscilla Lane a.k.a. Pat was my grandmother. I called her Grammy Pat and had the luxury of knowing her personally for 11 years. She lived next door to me so I would spend hours over her house playing games with her and listening to her sing to me. I was her "blue eyed baby". She was indeed a very magnetic and sweet woman and I will forever be grateful for her influence on my life. I only wish I had more time to get to know her more and learn more. I am bias but I believe she was indeed an amazing actress and is a pleasure to watch over and over again on film.

    I think Ms. Lane had a certain charisma that makes me like watching her films. But it was always the same one-dimensional character - nice, but without any depth to the character. She did not get a chance to play complex characters.

    Priscilla Lane had that certain something that just lit up the screen. Aside from being very beautiful she also came across as very likable in just about any role she took. There was a reason why she was one of Warner Bros.' top stars of the late 1930s and early 1940s. Just watch Arsenic and Old Lace and you'll see why.

  • NOt the best actress

    I find Priscilla Lane to be quite the "liner" type of actress. She recites her lines as if she is reading them. I do not find her enchanting. Instead, I believe that she may have gotten these roles by her adventurous heart. I hate to say that I was not sold in her performance in "My Darling Daughter" in 1939. I believe in her ideals portrayed by the movie. But it is not performance that convinces me of that. In fact, it is the other characters in the movie that make me understand the importance of this movie at that time. It was introducing ideas that were hard to admit yet all to real in that time. It was the beginning of the shift of our rights as woman and relationships.

  • Priscilla Lane ,I loved you.

    Of all the actresses that have appeared on the silver screen Ms, Lane was the one that I loved above all others. Of course I never knew her and the time period seperated us. But there was something about her that I fell in love with . Sweet kind , It all came through in her screen image. Another time and place, I wish I could have met her . She had everything that I find attractive in a women. God bless and take care of you , I cherish your work on the screen and I feel very grateful for having known of you even if it was just on the silver screen.

    Priscilla Lane had great talent, so real. So many, like her, are in films for a short time and give great performances and then are gone from us forever. She was a great actress. I love watching her movies. Thank to TCM that we can discover such great talent anew.

  • Priscilla Lane, an undiscovered rare diamond

    She was beautiful, talented and unappreciated by the film industry. Her birthday is tomorrow and TCM is one who almost ignores her. She should be the star of the whole day's movies.

    Priscilla Lane, very beautiful, warm and talented. Usually cast as the girl next door, I wish I was her neighbor!

  • She retired too soon.

    I have not yet found an actress that can replace her on screen pressence. But then why would I look to replace such a tallented actress. Her films are some of the most enjoyable from that pre-war and war time era.

  • WOW!!!

    I had not heard of this beautiful actress until I watched one of her movies on TCM. Now I want to see all of them. I can't get enough of her! She is absolute BEAUTY! NO other actress has anything on Priscilla! I think I'm in love.

    Priscilla Lane was an outstanding actress, who brought beauty and talent to every film she acted in. She was excellent in Arsenic and Old Lace her acting greatly complemented Cary Grant, and was so believable in the Roaring Twenties.

  • Sweet, wholesome actress often overlooked

    Miss Lane is excellent in "Saboteur", "Four Daughters", "Arsenic and Old Lace", "Roaring Twenties" and the handful of other films I have seen her in. She projects sweetness and sincerity, and does fine with serious drama when offered it. Great in light romantic parts, and believable facing emotional dilemnas. One of my favorites right up there with Teresa Wright!

    Priscilla Lane leads my list of favorite actresses. Beautiful and talented, she was the perfect "all American girl." Too bad she left the film industry in her prime.

  • The beautiful and talented Priscilla Lane.
