The best of Shirley MacLaine: The Apartment

1. The Apartment
2. The Trouble With Harry
3. Being There
4. Ask Any Girl
5. Terms of Endearment
6. Irma la Douce
7. Guarding Tess
8. In Her Shoes
When MacLaine first started appearing in movies — The Trouble with Harry, The Apartment, Ask Any Girl — she played women who were pixy-cute, smart as a tack, with an air of eminently sensible mischief that got into men's heads like fairy dust, or snuff. She was irresistable. All of today's kooks — from Geena Davies through to Zooey Deschanel — are as copies to a master. That she got kookier with old age only adds to her charm. She needs as many lives as she can get.
