Happy Birthday: Shirley MacLaine

Happy 76th Birthday to another one of my favorites: Shirley MacLaine! Ok, so it's officially April 25 right now, but only by almost an hour, so we'll pretend it's still April 24th.

The Apartment (1960) and Terms of Endearment (1983) are my personal favorites of hers. Both of these films had fantastically written screenplays, great casting, and amazing directors. Shirley was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Fran Kubelik, but the award went to Elizabeth Taylor for her role as Gloria Wandrous in BUtterfield 8. It wasn't until 1984 that Shirley won an Oscar and it was for her role as Aurora Greenway in Terms of Endearment.
