Happy Birthday to one of my favorite British actresses, Felicity Kendal.
The 1975 television series, The Good Life, is one of her best known works. It's the hilarious tale of a suburban couple, Tom and Barbara Good, who give up the rat race in favor of self-sufficiency, much to the chagrin of their snooty but lovable next-door neighbors, Margo and Jerry Leadbetter.
Felicity Kendal, Richard Briers, Penelope Keith, and Paul Eddington as Barbara and Tom Good, and Margo and Jerry Leadbetter.
A more recent work, Rosemary and Thyme, is another favorite - Pam Ferris as Laura Thyme and Felicity Kendal as Rosemary Boxer are a sleuthing gardening team.
Rosemary and Thyme is available on DVD as is The Good Life although it is a little harder to find. I highly recommend both.
