She’s audible, too

Alexa Hamilton, the Invisible Woman of a 1983 NBC television pilot, has reinvented herself as a singer-songwriter, and a pretty good one at that (with or without a hyphen between “pretty” and “good”).

We note with sorrow the passing of actor Charles Lane, the last surviving cast member of Universal’s 1940 The Invisible Woman. Lane was 102 and not ill: he just closed his eyes and departed.

You can see Lane as Mr Growley being tormented by Virginia Bruce as Kitty Carroll (yes!) on this very page.
