    Irma P. Hall - i LOVE the characters she plays. she is such a fascinating actress! an "Irma P. Hall movie marathon" is a brilliant way to spend a day...or a warm summer night - if i had an outdoor system! somehow she radiates the happy-warm-slow-glass of iced tea-lazy-days-of-summer in her work...maybe it is just me, but that seems like a great way to enjoy her work, maybe i will get an extension cord & set the tv & dvd player up on the patio w a pitcher of tea one july/august night...<3 ms irma
