Are you an expert on Loretta Swit's screen career?

Do you remember where else you've seen the M*A*S*H actress?


No matter where you caught her on television, Loretta Swit was always easy to spot with her signature blonde hair and infectious smile. With a career that spans across television, movies, and theater, she's made it clear that she could do just about anything. 

Swit trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she learned to sing — and, wow, what a voice! — and act for the stage. Her commitment to the craft helped her gain access to some of the most influential people in the business, even landing her some one-on-one coaching with Off-Broadway pioneer Gene Frankel in New York City.

Has all of the work that Swit put into her career been embedded in your brain? We want to know if you are a Swit career expert. Give it a try and good luck!

I felt It was wrong for Alan Alda not to let her go on to Cagney and Lacey, The die had already been cast that 82-83 was to be the final season, and in my humble opinion she had earned the chance to be the lead in a show, I loved Sharon Gless though ( i guess that just proves right time right place........)

I'm not defending Alan, but it wasn't just him. Fox wouldn't let her go either. Funny, they let Wayne, McLean, Larry, and Gary leave the show, but not Loretta.

[5 and 6]Who could forget that movie? [7] Of course she won Emmies! [8] What else could Norbecker be? [9] I knew that was another actress, but these guys misspelled affair and I was distracted! [10] Jeopardy didn't have celebrities in the Art Fleming era!
