You think this guy is scary? Aw, come on, he's got nothing on...
I wrote about Jerry Lee Lewis (1935-2022) here.
She's best known for playing TV's Jessica Fletcher, a mystery writer who spends so much time solving mysteries one wonders when she finds time to write them, but Angela Lansbury had been acting and performing her stockings off long before that series came along. Some highlights:
Will a Cockney-accented Lansbury come between a French-accented Charles Boyer and a Swedish-accented Ingrid Bergman? Watch the film and find out.
The Cockney accent was real, though Lansbury eventually managed to shed it. A mere two years later, she could not only talk in an American accent but...The Harvey Girls (1946)
...sing in one as well.
The Court Jester (1955)
With an entranced, then not entranced, then entranced again Danny Kaye. Snap!
Some more hypnotism:The Manchurian Candidate (1962)
In this political satire disguised as a political thriller, communists infiltrate the Republican Party.
