Hillary Brooke.

This week, I’ve been polishing up my commentary notes for “The Western Story,” an episode of The Abbott & Costello Show. It’s reminded me how much I love Hillary Brooke. She appeared in about half the show’s episodes.

From Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943) to Fritz Lang’s Ministry Of Fear (1944, above) to Road To Utopia (1945) to Africa Screams (1949) to Invaders From Mars (1953) to The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956), she’s one of my favorites.

From one role to the next, she could be funny or sinister or sympathetic — but always lovely and always worth watching.

    I’m with you on Hillary — Brooke not Clinton. Always a pleasure to see.
