    (May 31, 1899-February 19, 1969)
    Born in Kinsley, Kansas
    Portrayed Aunt Harriet Cooper on Batman (1966-68)
    Had recurring roles in the series Leave It To Beaver, The Real McCoys and the Jack Benny Show
    Appeared in the films 'Adam's Rib' (1949), 'An American in Paris' (1951), 'Singin' in the Rain' (1952), 'The Bad and the Beautiful' (1952), 'The Band Wagon' (1953), 'Brigadoon' (1954), 'The Tender Trap' (1955), 'The Solid Gold Cadillac' (1956), 'Loving You' (1957), 'Please Don't Eat the Daisies' (1960), 'The Trouble with Angels' (1966) and 'Batman' (1966)
    She was the niece of Gunsmoke actor Milburn Stone and used his influence to get parts.
    Despite being Stone's niece, she was five years older than him.
    She reportedly had trouble with pressure, causing many retakes.
    Her 'Batman' character pretty much existed just to stop 'Are they gay?' rumors about the dynamic duo.
    During World War II, she and her husband worked in Utah testing equipment for the Manhattan Project.
    She got a late start because her minister father discouraged her from acting.
    At one point, the producers of 'Batman' wanted to fire her and Adam West intervened on her behalf. The next day, he found a freshly baked cake in his dressing room, which he said was one of the nicest compliments he has ever been paid.
