Singer-actress Ann Blyth loves her fans. So much so that Blyth's been personally answering her fan mail for nearly 70 years.
"I get mail from all around the world," noted Blyth, who turns 85 on Friday. "I am so thankful to read their sweet notes and letters."
Though the fans write to her about her glorious soprano in movie musicals such as 1955's "Kismet," her deft comedic timing in farces like 1949's "Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid" and her credible dramatic turns in films such as 1952's "One Minute to Zero," there is one movie that dominates the letters — the 1945 film noir classic "Mildred Pierce."
