Tragedy Among the Co-Stars
 


Agnes Moorehead as Miss Bertie in Miss Bertie.
Alberta 'Bertie' Hoakam from Philadelphia. She's the old lady who arrives in townhot on the trail of a notorious bandit—and the reward money for capturing him.

This lady certainly needs no introduction. She is best known for her role as Samantha's mother, Endora in Bewitched. She initially turned down the role of Endora in Bewitched, but reconsidered when Elizabeth Montgomery asked her in person, when they met in a department store. Moorehead joined the cast not expecting the show to last more than one season - let alone become a long-running hit.

She won A Golden Globe for Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte. Did you see her in this? I remember her in this movie. Excellent actress! How about her performance in Wagon Train as Mary Halstead in 'The Mary Halstead Story'? She did the voice of the goose in Charlotte's Web. Loved her in The Singing Nun as Sister Cluny and was in The Untouchables.

She was called The Lavender Lady because she adored the color purple and drove a lavender car and her home and dressing rooms were lavender, her favorite color.

She was the first woman to co-host the Academy Awards (with Dick Powell) in 1948.

Born: December 6, 1900 in Clinton, Massachuttes
Died: April 30, 1974 in Rochester, Minnasota
Following her death, she was interred at Dayton Memorial Park in Dayton, Ohio.
