The admirers of Maggie Smith, and those who don't know her (if it is possible!) as well, will be delighted in having this collection of some of her best performances at BBC. Elegantly presented in a beautiful case, it includes 3 discs and a booklet on the actress, plus many extras at the end of each disc, included a radio play.
The collection includes: Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice", Bernard Shaw's "The Millionairess", Tennessee Williams' "Suddenly Last Summer", and a superb monologue written just for her by Alan Bennett, "Talking Heads: Bed Among the Lentils"
Maggie Smith is at her top in these performances, which go from comedy to drama. She passes from being comical, farcical, witty to dramatic, to sad, subdue, or majestic, from glamorous to plain. You can really enjoy the vast spectrum of her dramatic persona.
