Annoying Angie Dickinson

At an intimate TCM gathering at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the legendary star refused to discuss her finest film, the religious melodrama The Sins of Rachel Cade (1961).  At the time, Dickinson was being touted as Warner Bros. “new Bette Davis.”  It’s easy to see why.  Rachel Cade is secretly her best, most luminous performance.  But for whatever reason, she was unwilling to share any memories of the production.  She seemed suspicious as to why anyone would even ask about the film – and dismissed my question with “Oh, nobody saw that.”  Excuse me, I did.
