    (May 21, 1924-March 8, 1999)
    Born in Boston, Massachusetts
    Birth name was Mary Margaret Cass
    Portrayed Agnes Gooch in the Broadway (1957) and film (1958) versions of 'Auntie Mame'
    Also appeared in the films 'Gidget Goes Hawaiian' (1961), 'If This Is Tuesday, It Must Be Belgium' (1969) and 'Age of Consent' (1969)
    Appeared on stage in 'A Thurber Carnival,' 'Don't Drink the Water,' 'Plaza Suite,' 'The Front Page' and '42nd Street'
    Panelist on 'To Tell the Truth,' 'Password' and 'Match Game'
    She joined the drama club at Cambridge Latin School, but went through all of high school without getting a speaking part.
    She joined a USO troupe that toured Australia for seven months but never appeared in any shows.
    She became better known as a game show panelist and talk show raconteur than an actress.
    Fellow 'To Tell the Truth' panelist Orson Bean said her raspy voice 'could boil the fat off a cabdriver's neck.'
    Her performance as Agnes Gooch got her a Tony award and an Oscar nomination for supporting actress.
    On 'To Tell the Truth' she displayed an encyclopedic knowledge over a wide range of topics.
    Bean said, 'She was always laughing. She was just a joy to be around.'
