Barbara Booth

  1. Mary Anderson, Lifeboat, 1943.     The entire 97 minutes takes place on a crowded lifeboat after a German U-boat sank a passenger ship during WWII. Only Alfred Hitchcock could pull it off!   He tested, Brooklyn’s BB for the rescued nurse Alice McKenzie – won by Alabaman Anderson. Her career spanned from auditioning as Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With The Wind   (she won played Maybelle Merriwether) to being, 40 years and 60 roles later, Old Lady In Record Store in Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie, 1979. She remains more famous for asking Hitch which her best side was… “My dear, you’re sitting on it.” Cheekyy bugger!
