Roz Russell Leaves Her Mark
Rosalind Russell left her mark in cement at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, February 19, 1959. Above her name she wrote “Auntie Mame was here”, so even then perhaps she knew it would be her “signature” role. The movie “Auntie Mame” had been released about six or seven weeks before, in December 1958.
In this post we covered another honor for Roz, under much more harrowing circumstances that happened three years previously in her hometown of Waterbury, Connecticut. No cement then, just a lot of water over the bridge.
