She Will Always be Angela Channing



Sarah Jane Mayfield was born on January 5th, 1917 in St. Joseph, Missouri to meal company laborer Manning J. Mayfield and his wife stenographer and office assistant Gladys Hope Christian, but neither had any idea one of the classiest ladies to ever grace the silver screen had just been born to them. She went on to star in a ton of films and worked with some of the most handsome leading men.She is the only person to have won an Oscar, and married a future President of the United States. And she looks a bit like my dearly departed grandmother!






But to me she will always be the fabulous, nosey, conniving ,manipulative mistress of my all time favorite soap, Falcon Crest's Angela Channing. She will always be remembered and seems longer then the four years that she has passed.

  4. Jane had lived a long life = 90 years, had miracously done everything, she even was popular in movies, at the time, many audiences attended Drive-In Theaters, plus she made a comeback with only 1 TV series of the 1980s, after 2 unsuccessful pilots. What a remarkable journey she had!!
