SHIRLEY MACLAINE?

Shirley MacLaine



SHIRLEY MACLAINE (1934-Present), born Shirley MacLean Beaty
The gal every woman wants to be and every man wants to marry.







The Apartment (1960)
Haven't you seen The Apartment (1960)? Cry your eyes out while you laugh your head off.

Watch this and then see these other four films.



Terms of Endearment (1983) Cry your eyes out while you laugh your head off. (Where have I heard that before?)
Some Came Running (1958) Shirley's astonishing...and Sinatra and Dean Martin aren't so bad either.
The Trouble With Harry (1955) Alfred Hitchcock directed Shirley's movie debut, and he sure knew what he was doin'.
The Turning Point (1977) The cat brawl between Shirley and Anne Bancroft is worth the price of admission even if you don't care for ballet.
