Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketShe made over 280 shows!! Her first show aired in 1950. Each was about 30 minutes long, and were like a mini movie. She was named America’s best dress actress, because at the beginning of each show, she would do her ‘famous’ swirl through the door to introduce the show, and she would wear a newest designer dresses. The first season is out on dvd, and I give it an A+! They really did a bad job restoring it though, which was dissapointing. 

This movie staring Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, Julie Christie and Dustin Horrman, is about the man who wrote Peter Pan. He meets a widow and her 4 boys and with their encouragement, writes Peter Pan. I give this move a A-!
