  1. The list of her movie roles omits several that I think are important supporting roles. Probably the most difficult for her was The Poker House, because of the subject matter. (Which is also why it is left off of most lists.) To me it is the most dramatic role she has ever had. In The Beaver with Mel Gibson she played a completely different character and to perfection. All of her filmography is given on IMDB and I have tried to watch all of them, but some are hard to locate. "Catching Fire" opened here on my 81st birthday and I gave myself a visit to the theater as a present.
