    I wish to make a comment about Mary McDonnells glasses. I am a retired optician with thirty years of experience in the field. I am also an actor in community theater and local film producrtions. Ms. McDonnell is a very attractive actor (actress) and should be fitted with a more suitable frame so as to enhance her face and eyes. The frame sits so low on her nose and exposes too much area betweem the top of the frame and her eyebrows. When she is in a medium distance shot her eyes are totally blocked by the top of the frame. If it is the direrctors intent to make her into a negative or confrontational character he doesn't need to compromise her looks. Her superior acting ability will do the job nicely. The person who selected those particular frames needs to go back to school.moreless
