    (March 5, 1920-July 24, 1996)
    Born in Stanton, Iowa
    Birth name was Virginia Christine Kraft
    Best known for portraying Mrs. Olsen in commercials for Folger's Coffee (1965-86)
    Appeared in the films 'The Old Texas Trail' (1944), 'The Mummy's Curse' (1944), 'Murder Is My Business' (1946), 'The Killers' (1946), 'Women in the Night' (1948), 'Cyrano de Bergerac' (1950), 'The Woman They Almost Lynched' (1953), 'The Cobweb' (1955), 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' (1956), 'The Killer Is Losse' (1956), 'Johnny Tremain' (1957), 'Judgment at Nuremberg' (1961), 'The Killers' (1964), 'Billy the Kid vs. Dracula' (1966) and 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner' (1967)
    Despite a long career, she is remembered mainly as a coffee pitchman.
    Ironically, in her movie debut, she portrayed a 'Miss Olson.'
    Although she described her hometown as 'all Swedes,' her Swedish accent as Mrs. Olsen was not very convincing.
    Her hometown honored her by transforming their water tower to look like a giant coffee pot. (Yeah, this tidbit was already included in the Mrs. Olsen profile, but it was too good not to repeat.)
    She was married to Fritz Feld for 53 years until his death.
    She was a favorite of producer/director Stanley Kramer who cast her in a half dozen of his films.
    She served as an honorary mayor of Brentwood, California.
    The 'TV Times' described her as 'one of the small but select band of character actresses who are indispensable to any casting director.'
