Can you tell the difference between Loretta Swit and Sally Kellerman?

Both of them played Hot Lips, but only one appeared on Star Trek.

We call her Margaret, but most know her as "Hot Lips." This 4077th nurse remains one of the most beloved M*A*S*H characters — in both in the original 1970 film and the 1972 television series.

The multitalented Sally Kellerman and Loretta Swit portrayed Margaret in those classics, respectively. Elsewhere, they had rather different careers. See if you can tell them apart!

We only get 1 M.A.S.H. in a big suburban area. There probably wouldn't be a supported digital channel if it wasn't for a News feed, drawing in viewers, and also acting as a community service!

Is it possible for you to tip us off to watch Perry Mason when Jeanne Cooper is on in a bit part?
Pacificsun susanlee 21 days ago
It depends on your cable service, but I know am able to search future episodes of (Columbo, for example) through XFinity (and as long as you know the names of the episodes with Ms. Cooper.

Best Sally Kellerman role is Dr. Diane Turner in "Back To School"

12 for 13. I officially lost two more questions because the questions actually moved down as I chose
my answer. At least ads no longer linger over entire answer sections as in the past.
Swit is a nice looking Jersey girl but next to Kellerman she looks like a teenage boy.

"Who appeared on a made-for-TV musical about Superman called 'It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman!'"

It was ac actually a Broadway musical from 1966 that was staged for television in 1975.

9/13. Won bet with wife. Five Guys Burger here I come!
Best French fries!
Good idea me too
Great burgers, but way over priced. Two burgers and one fry, $25.66. Really! Forget about it.
Sounded good until you mentioned the price.
