Marion was a beautiful woman in her prime! See #7 and #9 for examples of her appearances on shows ("Perry Mason" and "The Donna Reed Show") in the late-1950s. She is now 91 (Oct. 25, 2019), and many more to her!

10 out of 12. The 'trio' question got me, as did the soap opera question.

They left out that she also played Drew Carey's mother in several episodes of his self-titled sitcom in the 90's.

Great trivia--missed only one, " Paradise Bay ". While all of these memorable moments mentioned are good. .where are her two Most memorable appearances on the Absolute Best TV Series of all time: " Hawaii Five--O ". On the episode " Blind Tiger " [ as Edith Lavallo ], a special nurse who attended to Jack Lord's Steve Mc Garrett, after he was blinded by a bomb attached to his car; an iconic episode which truly showcased Marion Ross's excellent dramatic prowess! The second episode: " Air Cargo--Dial For Murder " [ as ' Anita ' ], where she unknowingly gave information { over the phone } to the bad guys which gave them the details of certain shipments they could steal and use for their own nefarious evil ends for financial profit. This episode equally displayed her dramatic expertise; to bad she wasn't equally lauded for her serious acting abilities as much as her comedic attributes. Now come on MeTV, it's way beyond the time that " Hawaii Five--O " has been missing in action on this iconic station! ! !

While It wasn't a TV appearance, Marion Ross co-starred in Universal's "COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT" (1969) which Joseph Sargent directed. this sci-fi thriller about a computer system that was built too perfectly had terrifying consequences for its inventor (Eric Braedon) and our country. a superior movie!

11 for 12. I saw her in a play in New Brunswick with James Whitmore, she was terrific.
MeTV guys, please bring back 77 Sunset Strip, it's light years better than Barnaby "sleeping pill"
Jones. How about Surfside Six, Hawaiian Eye, sister series to 77 Sunset Strip, fun light weight
series with beautiful casts and humor and wit.
I defy anyone to find ONE instance of wit during Barnaby's entire run, one line that caused you to
even smile, it was 4th rate junk with a star who could care less. Cookie cutter crud.

Pretty sure I saw her several times when I binge-watched "Mannix" last year.
