Happy Birthday Rosalind Russell

Today is the 107th birthday of Rosalind Russell.  Suggesting any one of her films to watch is in no way discounting any of the others. I adore The Women, His Girl Friday, Gypsy, and Mrs. Pollifax – Spy, just for starters.  You may have your own, it is hard to not have at least a couple.
