After making a big splash in Hollywood in 1965 with featured roles in the movies Shenandoah and The War Lord, beautiful actress Rosemary Forsyth continued on the path to success by working steadily in film and television throughout the late 1960s and into the following decades. One of her best and most visible screen appearances of the '60s was as a key supporting player in the 1969 camp-thriller masterpiece What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?.
What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice? was produced by the legendary Robert Aldrich, the man responsible for the classic motion pictures What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? and Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte. This film is very much in the mould of those earlier successes -- all three projects involve pairs of older actresses who go head to head in very campy situations. This trio of fine films also has another thing in common: great support casts. Indeed, Rosemary Forsyth's lovely presence in Aunt Alice is nothing short of wonderful and her unique looks and innate charm are a welcome inclusion to the already terrific proceedings.
