Wickes, Mary ("Sister"), Lucy pal and co-hort extraordinaire and what a career!

 

Aside from memorable episodes on each series, the lady worked right up to the end with marvelous supporting turns in films like the two Sister Acts, the Meryl Streep/Shirley Maclaine comedy Postcards from the Edge and voiceovers in Life With Louie and Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame. Wow! lucythrill.JPG

Moore, Mary Tyler: Multi-Emmy winning and Academy Award -nominated actress (Ordinary People) who whirled & twirled dervishly on her short-lived, revamped hour-long "show within a show" comedy/variety hour with you-know-who, taped December 1978, aired early (March?) 1979 on CBS.

 

The supporting cast featured a then barely known Michael Keaton (later Batman under the direction of Tim Burton), Dodie Goodman (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman) and Sally Cato (Mame) herself, Joyce Van Patten.

Those were the days!:lucyhorror:

Mary Jane Croft, the "other" Lucy best friend, neighbor, confidante and scene supporter.

 

Whether shining as haughty Cynthia Harcourt in ILL or as Betty Ramsey in the Westport episodes or as Mary Jane Lewis in both HL and TLS, the lovely Mrs. Elliott Lewis shone whenever she was given the chance.

And we loved it whenever she did! :maryjane2:
