Loved her as Alice. Great singer too. Hard to believe she is 75.


Linda Lavin is a very likable actress. But her singing is another matter. I think she thinks she is a good singer. When she used to sing on her TV show `Alice,` she didn`t thrill me. I just liked looking at her. She turned me long as she didn`t sing.
