Did You Know?


Diminutive character actress, on stage from 1921, who played strange, eccentric old ladies on television in the 1950's and 60's. Her smiling, narrow-eyed countenance was usually inscrutable to betraying either evil or benevolence. Best in fantasy or sci-fi, such as The Outer Limits (1963), The Invaders (1967) or Bewitched (1964). See more »
