aMelanie Griffith is an emerging star of the American film, who has already become famous as the lead character in the movie Working Girl, which she has won the Golden Globe Awards for. She was born in New York on the 9th of July, 1957, in the household of the celebrated British actor and model Tippi Hedren. Her father, John was a director of commercials and her mother, Beverley, was an art dealer. They separated when Melanie was young and she moved back to England, where her acting career began.
Melanie Griffith’s first professional acting job was in a television drama in which she played the role of a young vixen who was swept away in a steamy river by two mysterious men. These men were the stars of the show, the same pair who would win the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role in 1970 for Their Eyes Opener. She then went on to play the leading role in the television series Welcome Back Kotter, before landing a role in the movie adaptation of the book Love Actually. This led to her starring parts in subsequent movies, which began to give her the recognition that she deserved.
Two of her best known roles have been in comedies, First Class and Working Girl. As the working girl in Working Girl, Griffith displays a kind of strength and courage that many American actresses may struggle to achieve, particularly at this early stage in their careers. In this film she plays the role of Zita the working girl of a small company, which consists of only two people. She is the firm’s secretary, with the unenviable job of being the wife of an abusive, alcoholic boss. This part of Working Girl shows Griffith’s exaggerated sense of guts and strength, especially when faced with his rage and alcoholism.
The role of Zita was originally played by Goldie Hawn, who has since become known as another example of an actress who could handle a lot of work. However, Melanie Griffith still managed to come up with one of the best performances of her career, giving fans a strong sense of longing and hope for the actress’s own future. Her convincing performance may have also helped the actress to win the Best Actress award for her performance in Second Place. Hawn had previously won an Academy Award for her performance in Something Beautiful, but this time for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Not only did Griffith have to beat out such an accomplished actress like Hawn, but she was also up against some pretty good competition, which made it look like the odds were heavily stacked against her.
But if anything could be compared to the role that Griffith won for Playing Zita, it would be her turn as Holly Golightly in the movie version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Although this film failed to garner the same critical acclaim as its precursor, A Christmas Carol, it was still a very successful picture nonetheless. And although it was not as successful or popular as its predecessor, A Christmas Carol, it was still a hit for director Victor Fleming, who was widely regarded as one of the most important and respected movie directors of all time. And speaking of respected and famous directors, Don Hertl and Richard Curtis both directed A Christmas Carol. This led many to believe that these two had been considered the spiritual predecessors of A Christmas Carol, as they had two of the biggest names in entertainment at the time.
Perhaps the most important thing about Playing Zita for those who never knew her is that it gives a great glimpse into the character of Melanie Griffith herself. As the main character, Griffith portrays a girl who is more than a match for her male lead in every way. She is strong willed and driven with a true devotion to her family and a true passion for playing her part in the great play. As the romantic lead, Johnsson delivers a performance that is true to his personality. He is an actor who has given audiences everything from heartwarming and endearing characters to some of his best work in recent years.
