Happy Birthday, Glynis Johns!

Actress Glynis Johns turns 91 years old today.

Johns was born in South Africa on October 5th, 1923.

Reviewing the list of Glynis Johns films I've seen, I'm hard-pressed to name a favorite peformance. Is it as the man-hungry mermaid MIRANDA (1948)? The cunning Mary Tudor in THE SWORD AND THE ROSE (1953), seen below? Jean in the classic medieval comedy THE COURT JESTER (1956)? Or as Mrs. Banks in the beloved MARY POPPINS (1964)? What a body of work!

With thanks and best wishes to a marvelous actress who has brought such enjoyment to my movie watching over the years.

Glynis Johns movies previously reviewed here at Laura's Miscellaneous Musings: VACATION FROM MARRIAGE (1945), MIRANDA (1948), NO HIGHWAY IN THE SKY (1951), THE SWORD AND THE ROSE (1953), ROB ROY: THE HIGHLAND ROGUE (1953), THE COURT JESTER (1956), THE SUNDOWNERS (1960), MARY POPPINS (1964), and WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING (1995).
