And to Think that More People Know Who Kim Kardashian Is
Julie Harris is one of the most acclaimed and influential actresses of her generation. She still holds the record for most Tony nominations with 10, and is presently tied with Angela Lansbury for most Tony wins with 5. She also had a stellar film career which included such classics as "The Member of the Wedding" (in which she was nominated for an Oscar), "East of Eden", "Requiem for a Heavyweight", "The Haunting", "Reflections in a Golden Eye", and "The Hiding Place". As Ms. Harris got older, the gal turned her attention to Television and was rewarded in that medium with 3 Emmy Awards. Her most prestigious honor, though, came in 2005, as a Kennedy Center honoree. Julie Harris is an American treasure and, yes, even at the age of 85, the woman continues to work and inspire. God bless her.
