Better Ritter

I took another crack at the Thelma Ritter portrait I drew for TCM some years ago. I won't show you the original because it's so revolting I couldn't have possibly been in my right mind when I drew it. I adore Ritter, often considering her performance the salvation of even the worst films she appeared in, so I couldn't let my previous, dog-poo effort at capturing her lie uncorrected.

Ritter is portrayed here as she appeared in Pickup on South Street, a substantial film-noir B-picture in which she has one of her few starring roles. As always, she is the best part of the movie.
