MORE INFO ON WALTER MATTHAU: Born Walter Matthow on October 1, 1920 in New York City, to a Russian Jewish father and a Lithuanian Jewish mother, Matthau grew up in poverty on the Lower East Side. He started out selling soft drinks and playing bit parts at a Yiddish theater troupe at age 11. He was paid 50 cents for each of his occasional on-stage appearances. His father, a peddler from Kiev, left home when he was 3 years old. He lived with his older brother, Henry, and their mother, a garment worker, on the Lower East Side of New York. After graduating from Seward Park High School during the Depression, he took government jobs as a forest ranger in Montana, a gym instructor for the Works Progress Administration, and a boxing coach for policemen. During World War II, he served in the Army Air Corps as a radio cryptographer in a heavy bomber unit in Europe and returned home a sergeant with six battle stars.

In 1948, his first Broadway role was when he was hired as an understudy for the role of an 83 year old English bishop in 'Anne of the Thousand Days' starring Rex Harrison. His fame came with The Fortune Cookie (1966) and The Odd Couple (1968). While making the former, he suffered a serious heart attack. This was due to heavy smoking and chronic gambling. Matthau immediately quit smoking and began a life-long regime of walking 2-5 miles per day.

Matthau's acting career continued to flourish for the next 30 years with him playing memorable lead and supporting characters in both dramatic and comic films, several of them alongside Jack Lemmon. Unbeknownst to his fans, Matthau continued to battle heart disease and was later diagnosed with two forms of cancer. In 1976, he had heart bypass surgery. In 1993, he was hospitalized for double pneumonia. In 1995, he had a benign colon tumor removed. In 1999, he was hospitalized again for pneumonia where he was diagnosed again with cancer. Walter Matthau died on July 1, 2000, at age 79.

MORE INFO ON GLENDA JACKSON: Glenda May Jackson, born 9 May1936) is a twice Academy-Award-winning Britishactress and politician, currently Labour Member of Parliamentfor the constituency of Hampstead and Highgatein the London Borough of Camden.

She was born in Birkenheadon the Wirral, where her father was abricklayer. She attended theWest Kirby County Grammar School for Girls, then worked for two years in a Bootspharmacy store, before studying atRADAinBloomsbury.

She has one son by her ex-husband, Roy Hodges whom she married in 1958 and divorced in 1976.

Having studied acting atRADA, Jackson made her professional stage debut in Terence Rattigan's Separate Tables in 1957, and her film debut in This Sporting Life in 1963. Subsequently a member of theRoyal Shakespeare Companyfor four years, she worked for directorPeter Brookin several productions, including ofPeter Weiss'Marat/SadeasCharlotte Corday. Jackson also appeared in the film version.

Fame came with Jackson's starring role in the controversial Women in Love (1969) for which she won her first Academy Award for Best Actress, and another controversial role as Tchaikovsky's nymphomaniac wife in Ken Russell's The Music Lovers added to her image of being prepared to do almost anything for her art. She confirmed this by having her head shaved in order to play Queen Elizabeth I of England in theBBC's 1971 blockbuster serial, Elizabeth R. Her portrayal of Elizabeth I is considered unparalled in accuracy by Elizabethan scholars. She received two Emmy Awards for her work in this series. She also appeared on the Morecambe and Wise Show in 1971, playing Cleopatra in a comedy sketch which is generally recognised as one the funniest sequences in British TV history. This led to many other appearances on the show, including the Christmas Shows of 1971 and 1972.

Filmmaker Melvin Frank watched this and saw her comedic potential and offered her the lead female role in his next project. She earned a second Academy Award for Best Actress for this particular comic role in A Touch of Class(1973), and Eric and Ernieapparently sent her a telegram saying: 'Stick with us kid, and we'll get you a third!'. She also portrayed Queen Elizabeth in a film about the life of Mary, Queen of Scotsand she has been recognised as one of Britain's leading actresses. In 1978, she was made aCommander of the Order of the British Empire.

The Glenda Jackson Theatre, on the Borough Road campus ofWirral Metropolitan College, Birkenhead, was named after her in 1983. It closed in 2003, and was demolished byWirral Council, to make way for a new housing estate, in 2004.

She retired from acting in order to enter theHouse of Commonsin the1992 general electionas the Labour MP forHampstead and Highgate. After the1997 general election, she was appointed a junior minister in thegovernmentofPrime MinisterTony Blair, with responsibility forLondon Transport, a post she resigned before an attempt to be nominated as the Labour Party candidate for the election of the first Mayor of London in 2000. The nomination was eventually won by Frank Dobson, who lost the election to Ken Livingstone, the independent candidate. In the 2005 general election, she received 14,615 votes, representing 38.29% of the votes cast in theconstituency.

As a high profile backbencher she became a regular critic of Blair over his plans to introduce top-up fees. She also called for him to resign following the Judicial Enquiry b yLord Hutton in 2003 surrounding the reasons for going to war inIraqand the death of government adviser Dr. David Kelly. Jackson was generally considered to be a traditional left-winger, often disagreeing with the dominant Blairite governing centre-left faction in theLabour Party.

By October 2005, her problems with Blair's leadership swelled to a point where she threatened to challenge the Prime Minister as a stalking horse candidate in a leadership contest if he didn't stand down within a reasonable amount of time. On 31 October2006, Jackson was one of 12 Labour MPs to backPlaid Cymru and the Scottish National Party's call for an inquiry into theIraq War.

Her constituency boundaries will change dramatically at the next election. Gospel Oak and Highgate wards will become part of Holborn & St Pancras, and the new Hampstead& Kilburn ward will cross the border into Brent to include Brondesbury, Kilburn and Queens Park wards (from the old Brent East and Brent South seats). She revealed in an interview that she will stand for the next election.
