I always enjoyed watching the great Angela Lansbury in Murder, She Wrote. Did she act in anything after the show ended?

British-born Lansbury, 80, began acting in the United States as a teenager, was nominated for two Academy Awards (for her roles in the movies Gaslight and The Picture of Dorian Gray) before she was 21, and received four Tony Awards for her work on Broadway between 1966 and 1979. But it wasn't until the hit TV series Murder, She Wrote (1984-1996) that she became a household name. She's been busy ever since with guest roles on other TV shows and in four Murder, She Wrote television movies. Most recently, she appeared on the big screen in the comedy Nanny McPhee, which has just been released on DVD.
