Little Miss Egyptian Evil

All hail Anne Baxter, Queen of the Breathy Bad Girls!

May 7, 1923 - December 12, 1985


  1. That is Miss Anne Baxter in 'The Ten Commandments' and THOSE are the moves!

  2. to this day, whenever i need to utter the word "moses*", i do my best to say it like annie's nefretiri.

  3. And lets not forget - she is not only the granddaughter of Frank Lloyd Wright, but the niece of the inventor of Lincoln Logs. And Anne was the step niece of Jospeh Stalin's daughter Svetlana Alliluyeva. Strange Bedfellows indeed.

  4. What's odd, too, is that you would never really think of Anne Baxter and Yul Brynner working in a movie together, but they did a great job as battling spouses. I love whatever that string of lines is when she compares her skin and scent to that of poor Yvonne De Carlo the shepherdess.
