That's right! It's the original Major Margaret Houlihan of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital!
Of course, Kellerman would only play "Hot Lips" in the 1970 Robert Altman film. M*A*S*H is one of the rare MeTV shows that Kellerman did not appear on.
The Californian attended Hollywood High School, where she sent a demo to jazz giant Verve Records. The 18-year-old singer scored a contract, but backed out of it. She studied acting instead. Her first television role came on Bachelor Farmer, in 1960. A few years later, she was on The Twilight Zone. Stints on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, My Three Sons, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, Star Trek, That Girl, Hawaii Five-O, and Bonanza followed! She played the psychiatrist of the U.S.S. Enterprise on the second pilot episode of Star Trek — the one that actually made it to the air in the 1960s. (That's what's pictured above.)
Check out some clips of her appearances. And keep your eyes peeled for Kellerman!
