Life Is A Banquet: The Rosalind Russell Story Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sat, Mar 23, 2013 -- 6:00 PM

The star of Auntie Mame, His Girl Friday, Gypsy, and scores of other memorable films and Broadway shows, Rosalind Russell came into her own during Hollywood's Golden Era and was paired with many of the luminaries of that time, including Joan Crawford, Cary Grant, and Kirk Douglas. Long an advocate for those with disabilities, late in life this unique and pioneering talent was struck with severe rheumatoid arthritis, which derailed her career. Thereafter, Russell championed the needs of millions also suffering from the disease. Whether considered for her sophisticated comedy roles or dignity under duress, her humanity shines through. Narrated by Kathleen Turner, this insightful and warm profile comes on the occasion of the approach of the 75th anniversary of her breakthrough role as Sylvia Fowler in The Women (1939) and the 55th anniversary of her most famous role as Mame Dennis in Auntie Mame (1958).

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
