This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Set against the seismic events of the twentieth century, “The Magic of Believing” is an inspiring family memoir of hardship, courage, hope and triumph. In 1940, as bombs fell on London, Charlotte Lillian McIldowie (“Moe”) boarded a steamer with her daughter, Angela, and twin boys, Edgar and Bruce, to cross the Atlantic. Dodging icebergs and German U-Boats, they eventually arrived unscathed in the United States, the first leg of a lifelong adventure from London to Broadway to Hollywood populated by the most creative and fascinating personalities of the day. The Lansbury family has a proud theatrical tradition that began with the nineteenth century Shakespearean tragedian Robert Mantell and continued with Moe, who under the stage name Moyna MacGill became one of London's golden leading ladies. Angela’s storied career launched in 1942 when she signed with MGM and appeared in her first big screen roles, “Gaslight” and “The Picture of Dorian Grey.” Decades later, she is known and beloved internationally for scores of defining film roles, Broadway musicals such as "Mame,""Sweenie Todd,” and "Gypsy" and, of course, for her portrayal of the beloved Jessica Fletcher in TV’s “Murder She Wrote.” The Lansbury twins wasted no time moving into the family business as well. Bruce became a prolific television writer, series creator, producer, and a senior executive at Paramount Pictures. He produced such legendary TV series as “Mission Impossible” and “The Wild, Wild West.” Edgar began in theater as a scenic designer and eventually produced his first Broadway play, "The Subject Was Roses," which won the Critics Circle and Tony Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize. He went on to produce several films and dozens of plays on and off-Broadway, including the international smash-hit musical "Godspell.” Throughout their lives and respective professional careers, in good times and bad, Moe's creative muse and her undying belief in ‘the possible’ provided the energy and magic that fueled the family’s dreams and success.
