LATEST: MURDER, SHE WROTE star Angela Lansbury is preparing to undergo knee replacement surgery tomorrow (14JUL05).

The British actress, 79, tripped over an electrical cord on Friday night (08JUL05) while joining celebrities onstage for Stephen Sondheim's 75th birthday concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

But, according to Lansbury's daughter DEIRDRE BATTARRA, the slip has nothing to do with the actress' surgery plans.

Battarra explains, "Her knee is so painful from years of dancing. She's pretty at ease about it all."

Lansbury is expected to take one to two months to recover.
