And with Shirley MacLaine, who joins the cast as Cora’s mother, Martha Levinson! Imagine the showdowns to come, with Dame Maggie Smith’s Lady Violet….The pithy utterances. The oblique, yet scorching putdowns. The wry, overly-accurate observations. And if/when the two join forces? Formidable! Ladies, start your engines!
