Great actress overcame a tough disease
To watch her fly thru her parts it is hard to believe her suffering from serious arthritis. This was a true love story between her and her husband. He watched over her. It must have been hard to be funny and snappy in such pain. There were few drugs to help in those days.

Roz Russell was as deft a person in real life being friends with both Frank Sinatra and Irene Dunne and able to do drama and comedy equally as well. Along with Irene Dunne, and Jean Arthur, Ms Russell is one of the truly great female stars who never won an Oscar, an injustice. Stylish Roz Russell gracious in real life had many a last laugh as many of her peers retired from lack of work and only Roz Russell (and Kate Hepburn) did not have to do horror films to stay active but in fact was a top of the marquee leading star until Her death. Ms Russell in fact had a great run in the 60's starring in the film versions of Gypsy, A Majority of One, and Five Finger Exercise. The devout Catholic Ms. Russell had a great box office hits at Columbia in The Trouble With Angels and its sequel Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows (with the very fine Stella Stevens). Roz also worked with Ross Hunter who favored older women stars in "Rosie" at Universal.

Rosalind Russell was one of the best actresses. She can make you laugh, or cry. She stirs all kibds of emotions into you. And that is what makes a great actress!!!! :)

I love watching old and did so growing up in Bklyn, NY. Watched the early show, the late and the late,late show. Rosalind Russell was one of my very favorite actress's. She could do anything but I enjoyed her most when she did comedy. It almost seemed like it was second nature to her. She a woman to be admired and a great actress.
what an actress!
I admire her style, humour, mannerisms so much. They don't make 'em like that anymore! Her strength and character will live on for generations.
Thank You TCM for making Rosalind Russell star of the month and showing 'Craig's Wife'. I taped it the night it premired and was blown away by Rosalind Russell's performance as 'Harriet Craig'. Ms.Russell looked absolutely stunning (its shame that she wore nothing but business suits in the years ahead)and gave a powerful perfomance that proved she could act with the best of them. I look forward to seeing the rest of her films this month and the world can see what an underated talent she was.

one of the most talent actress that ever live. greatly miss.
STAR OF THE MONTH - of coarse!
Roz Russell most definitely deserves to be "Star of the Month" sometime. She has such an amazing presence in any of her movies, and is always a scene stealer! She's got plenty of movies to go around - main focus on "Auntie Mame", "His Girl Friday", "The Women" and "Gypsy".
Yes to Star
of the month. Just her performance of "Conga" in Wonderful Town would be enough to make her a Star of the Month. Did you know she was influential in getting Lenny Bernstein selected for the music?
Star of the Month
I concur with another viewer that it is high time for Roz to be made Star of the Month. From comedy to drama, from leads to supporting roles, Rosalind Russell had a full career that deserves to have the spotlight. I especially want to see her comedies from the forties along with the classic "Guilt of Janet Ames". Looking forward to it!
Star of the Month!!
It's time for TCM to make Rosalind Russell the Star of the Month. Her uncanny talent to go from side-splitting comedy to tear-jerking drama shows she is up there with the best of them. Why hasn't TCM shown some of her movies like Sister Kenny, A Majority of one , or Rosie??? As good as she was in her early career, she also was in the later years. May the powers that be take note.
Rosalind you're the greatest

A Great Comedienne
- Fan of the Classics
Katharine Hepburn is usually credited as the essential female side of the cinema's best battles-of-the-sexes comedies, but Rosalind Russell could give her a run for her money in His Girl Friday or almost any of her many other career woman roles. Sadly she seems semi-forgotten outside of His Girl Friday and The Women, which most viewers know her from. While she's best known for her comedy, she wasn't bad in drama, Picnic and Gypsy being two excellent examples.
