Ms Moorehead - Radio Classics 'Classic'
- Rex Stone
I also agree that Ms. Moorehead was great on the radio broadcasts I've been hearing on Radio Classics; to include the SORRY, WRONG NUMBER airing. She was a very good winey Aunt in The Magnificent Andersons and other similar roles. I love The Mercury Theatre on the Air players; Wells, Moorehead, and especially Joseph Cotton. She had a very recognizable voice and delivery. What can I say Endora was tops! Thanks for the write up. [small correction: Joe E Brown (I'm a big fan of his) was in Showboat; not, Joe E Lewis]
Radio star Aggie
- Vivia Boe
I second Joe's review above, adding that before TV, she was one of the best and most popular actors on radio. Her work on the SUSPENSE series (RADIO's THEATER OF THRILLS) caused a listener sensation for her portrayal of a bedridden woman's increasing desperation to get help after being left alone and overhearing a murder plot on the phone in the episode, SORRY, WRONG NUMBER. It was the most requested episode during the shows 20 year run, was made into a Hollywood movie*, and led to her billing thereafter as "The First Lady of SUSPENSE". Aggie fans who have not experienced her on radio can go to the Internet Archives, archive.org; or via her Wikipedia listing. Lucky dogs. She was amazing.
- Dotty Ragan
I noticed that in the biography, Pollyanna was not mentioned in her lists of movies. She starred with Jane Wyman and Hayley Mills.
I Love You: you have helped me so much in life and I thank you, it's hard to picture a world without you in it. As a fan I promise your "being" will live on forever.
I believe that Agnes Moorehead died of uterine cancer, not lung cancer as stated.
I grew up near Agnes Moorehead's home
Agnes was born in Clinton, Massachusetts and we grew up about 4 houses away. We used to skate and play pickup hockey in a pond in back of the house that we were told was hers. She had a natural beauty, though not the kind that most actresses needed to succeed. Clinton is proud to be her heritage!
The Great Moorehead!
One of cinema's great supporting actresses second only to Thelma Ritter. Richly deserved an Academy Award on at least two of the four occasions of her nominations. Her losses to Teresa Wright and Lila Kedrova at her first and fourth nominations are Academy mistakes of historic significance. Although her legacy is most noted in television, she is one of films greatest and least honored legends of acting.
best actress of all time
