Don't forget "The Young Philadelphians" --she's Paul Newman's mother even though she was younger than he was (and his father played by almost equally young Brian Keith)... 🎬❤️

You did an entire story about Diane Brewster -
- and didn't even mention that she played Mrs. Richard Kimble on the Fugitive?
Including the grand finale in 1967?
Isn't that kind of like writing about Peter Falk and not mentioning that cop with the raincoat ... ?

6/9 I missed #3, #5 and #8. Some lucky guesses, but I did know #2 and #4. I also didn't remember seeing her in any "The Twilight Zone" episodes.

6/9. She was so gorgeous, physically ideal for every type and genre she played. I love Miss Landers but I missed Miss Canfield after that first season.

You got it backwards! Still The Beaver was 1983 and NLITB was several years later!
