She went on to star in more than fifty movies, earn 6 Tony Awards for her work on Broadway, and garner 18 Emmy Award nominations for her role as Jessica Fletcher in the long-running TV show Murder, She Wrote. She continued working over nine decades, most recently in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery that will be released posthumously.
