I see where Marjorie Lord has passed away at 97.  She was in Sherlock Holmes in Washington and was quite possibly the last surviving adult actor/actress of any of the Rathbone/Bruce Holmes series.

Yes, she was a fine actress, and she appeared in many movies in the 1940's and 1950's before her TV career.  One of her first big parts was in "Forty Naughty Girls", a Hildegarde Withers mystery starring ZaSu Pitts.  This is a nice mystery movie, and is good for viewing on a snowy winter night.

I am reminded that there is another Rathbone/Bruce series adult actor still alive....Patricia Morison from the last film "Dressed to Kill".  She's 101 and if you tube videos are any indication, still quite active and vibrant.
