This was the first movie of a great career! (See the Movies section). With this movie she got her first Oscar nomination (See the Awards section).Angela's first husband was Richard Cromwell (Roy Radabaugh), married on September 27, 1945 in Independence (California). It wasn't a "happy marriage": Angela realized her approach to marriage had been immature; then in August 1946, after 11 months, she obtained the divorce from Roy in Los Angeles.And in 1946 she got her second Oscar nomination (See the Awards section) for her role in The Picture of Dorian Gray.Only 5 months after her divorce, Angela knew her actual husband (Peter Shaw), thanks to Hurd Hatfield, an actor who invited her to a weekend party at a friend's house in the Ojai Valley. She didn't know how getting there and Hurd "sent" Peter taking her. Angela married Peter Shaw (Peter Pullen) on August 12, 1949 in London (UK), St. Columbia's Church, after they won approval from the Church of Scotland (both Angela and Peter was divorced). Peter Pullen was born on June 24, 1918 in London (UK).Their first son, Anthony Peter Shaw, was born on January 7, 1952 in their home in Encino (San Fernando Valley).One year later, on April 26, 1953, at Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, they had a daughter, Deirdre Angela Shaw.In the 1950s, Peter won custody of his son, David, and then he and Angela agreed that the time had come to bring over the ten-year-old boy. David was born in 1944, while Peter was still married with Mercia Squires, a model he knew in London.Source: angelalansbury.net

I had no idea that such a thing could happen. It never occurred to me.My son told me. He called me and said, "Darling, I just wanted you to know that you have been chosen to receive an honorary Academy Award." I was in the back of this car, and I said, "Oh," and burst into tears, of course, because it was so unexpected and quite wonderful. I thought it's been worth hanging around all these years.More Angela Lansbury quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
