Did You Know?


The first season of this series was produced by William Asher and starred Cleavon Little as the jive-talking intern whose outlandish but well meant shenanigans outraged the hospital's chief-of-staff, played by James Whitmore. Joan Van Ark, Reva Rose, and Nancy Fox played the nurses who were always in cahoots with Little. Whitmore referred to Little and the nurses as "The Four Horsemen of Aggravation." See more »

Amen to that brother...Nancy Fox STOLE the show.
3 May 2008 | by BJ KellySee all my reviews

When I was little, I could remember very few things at the age of seven on television except Captain Kangaroo. However, lightening had struck the night I first saw Nancy Fox on ABC's "Temperature's Rising". She was my FIRST childhood crush. I can remember seeing her in TV Guide, and when my dad threw the magazine in the garbage, I had lost my soul-mate and my whole world was in a mess.

The only reason that I am giving this TV show a perfect "10" is because of Nancy's presence on the sitcom. I remember she played a gorgeous, dim-witted student nurse, Ellen Turner. After the show went off the air, I searched and searched for Nancy, but I couldn't find her on TV. She was such a goddess, and I'm sure she still is, and had a sultry, perky voice with fabulous curves. For years I thought she had played "Vera" on the popular CBS TV show, "Alice", but it was a different actress, Beth Howland. Nancy did appear on episodes of "Charlie's Angels" and was a childhood friend of Jaclyn Smith.

In case you should happen to come across this writing, Nancy, I guess the world wants to know how you're doing these days??? You should have a website and photos on the Internet. We, who miss you, bow in prayer and say, "Hail, Nancy!"
