My name is Major7 and I have been a fan of Shirley MacLaine since the 1980's, when I first began reading her books. Finding her books during that time in my life (mid 20's) was especially interesting and some of the philosophy I learned through them are still with me today.
It was only after reading about her trips all over the world that I began watching her movies. I do not know which movies I could say are my favorites as so many of them are so great. Steel Magnolias, Madame Sousatka, Postcards From the Edge, Terms of Endearment, The Turning Point, The Children's Hour, Two Mules for Sister Sara, are probably my favorite favorites, but the others are also great films, even Cannonball Run2.
I have had the chance to meet and greet Miss MacLaine on several occasions, and received a kiss from her when I presented her flowers a several years ago when she was performing in Dallas, Texas.
I love that she is working and has some new movies coming out soon.
