I’d want to see a television show about an alien like a witch who marries a regular guy and wishes to live a typical housewife’s life.
But wait, that’s exactly what the eight-season television drama Bewitched, which aired from 1964 to 1972, is about. You ought to look it up if you haven’t already.
Gorgeous In the episode, Elizabeth Montgomery portrayed the stunning Samantha Stephens, whose nose twitch captivated millions of viewers. This actress’s career peaked in the 1960s, but she passed away.
On April 15, 1933, Montgomery was born in Los Angeles to a Broadway actress and a movie star. She followed in the footsteps of her famous actor father, Robert Montgomery.
“Dad says that after dinner, I used to clamber up onto his lap and declare, “I’m going to be an actor when I grow up.” In a 1954 interview with the Los Angeles Times, the actress said, “I’m not sure if he supported me, but he told me he’d humor me and advise me to wait and see what happened when I grew up.” “I’ll be up forward and say that Daddy did help me get a break in TV, and I’m sincerely appreciative of his assistance and advice. He is not just a true friend but also my fiercest critic and a fantastic father.
On her father’s program Robert Montgomery Presents, Montgomery made her television debut when she was a teenager. She later made a number of other appearances.
At the age of 20, this incredibly attractive actress made her Broadway debut in Late Love before making her big screen debut in The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell two years later.
After becoming well-known, Montgomery went on to star in numerous other movies. She has appeared in a number of other films, including Mrs. Sundance (1973), A Case of Rape (1974), The Tale of Lizzie Borden (1975), Black Widow Murders (1993), The Body Had a Familiar Face (1994), and Deadline for Murder: From the Files of Edna Buchanan (1995), but her most well-known role is in Bewitched. “With a series, you live with one character day in and day out – and you only hope it does not drive you insane,” Montgomery told the Associated Press in 1965. “I’d never considered doing a series because I liked the idea of picking a screenplay I liked with a character I thought I could hold for an hour.
The actress has had four marriages. She later wed the talented actor Gig Young, but they divorced in 1963. Montgomery first met William Asher, her third husband, while they were filming Johnny Cool; they eventually had three children together. Her fourth husband, Robert Foxworth, was the person she remained with until she passed away.
According to Herbie J Pilato, author of two volumes on the actress, “Before Jane Seymour, Lindsay Wagner, and Valerie Bertinelli, Elizabeth was the first Queen of TV movies; she went from the queen of the witches to queen of the TV movie, and it was no longer a fight to break away from Bewitched.”
She believed she had defeated colon cancer when Montgomery passed away in 1995. When she was evaluated, it was already too late because her liver had been affected by the malignancy. Her husband and daughters were by her side as she passed away quietly in her sleep. In Los Angeles’ Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, her ashes were dispersed.
The actress Elizabeth Montgomery was outstanding. Still sorely missed, she.
