I was a huge "Dallas" fan when the series ran throughout the 1980s. Last night I tuned in to the reprise of it. Linda Gray, the actor who played J.R.'s wife, is back in the "sequel" series. I always liked her, but it was disheartening to see how much face work she has obviously had in order to stay marketable.
Made me think back to Barbara Bel Geddes who played the family matriarch, Miss Eliie, until 1990. She was obviously a woman of a certain age in that series, and she didn't need any (obvious) face work to play the role. A lot has changed in two decades.
