Happy Mother’s Day Carrie Fisher
For many Carrie was the mother dreams are made of but her daughter Catherine received the motherly attention. Carrie has been typecast for her portrayal of Princess Leia in The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and Star Wars but many forget some of her other movies. The Aristocrats, Undiscovered, Stateside, Wonderland, A Midsummer Night’s Ravem , Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Lisa Picard is Famous, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, This is My Life, Drop Dead Fred, Soapdish, Sibling Rivalry, Sweet Revenge, The Burbs, Loverboy, The Time Guardian, When Harry Met Sally, Appointment with Death, She’s Back, Amazon Women on the Moon, From Here to Maternity, Hannah and Her Sisters, Hollywood Vice Squad, The Man With One Red Shoe, Frankenstein, Garbo Talks, The Groove Tube, Under the Rainbow, Shampoo, Mr. Mike’s Mondo Video and the modern slapstick The Blues Brothers.
Her mother was Debbie Reynolds, who is also a well-known star.
Debbie Reynolds’ most memorable performance was in Singin’ in the Rain where she acted opposite Gene Kelly.
She was also the lead role in The Unsinkable Molly Brown which she received an Academy Award nomination. She continued to act sporadically for more than 40 more years, in film and on stage and TV.
She has been in greats like Behind the Candelabra, One for the Money , Carol Channing: Larger Than Life, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, Kiki’s Delivery Service, In & Out, Mother (1996), What’s the Matter With Helen?, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Mary Mary, How the West Was Won, The Pleasure of His Company, Second Time Around, Rat Race, It Started with a Kiss, The Gazebo, The Mating Game, Tammy and the Bachelor, The Catered Affair, The Tender Trap, Susan Slept Here, The Affairs of Dobie Gillis, Three Little words and 1953’s Singin’ in the Rain as Kathy Selden.
With this mountain of movies I don’t think Carrie will soon stop acting. We all wish Carrie a Happy Mother’s Day and May the Force be with her!
