We have such a fondness for Miss Sally that we were thrilled when she got cast as Mary Todd Lincoln. It’s such a meaty role and she hasn’t had one of those in a while. Besides, few actresses can play that kind of brittle craziness as well as she can.

Sixty-six years old, bitches. In a sleeveless, body-hugging dress. You go, Gidget. We think she looks great, although she might’ve wanted more of a lining on the skirt. We’re not all that crazy about the shoes.
We wonder how the public would react if she stopped dying her hair. It still works for her, in defiance of the rule that says women past a certain age shouldn’t keep their hair dark. And it’s obviously good for her career, because she’s playing Mrs. Lincoln at a point about 20 years younger than her actual age.
