Very sad. Probably my first crush in life... Gone at 80.



p.s. I understand that she might have been a big fan of steel guitar [included for relevance... Wink]

p.p.s. I know she was looking at me in that photo; she had to have been...

Post Posted 26 Jan 2017 9:42 am     MTM the real actress Reply with quote

Although known for sitcoms, MTM was a great big screen actress. In her Oscar nominated performance she played a woman a lot like my Mom. My sister and I saw it separately and we both commented how much that was like my Mom and I behaved with each other. But we said nothing because we didn't,t think it was particularly flattering to the mothe's character. 2 weeks later my Mom called and said 'you have to see Ordinary People. MTM's character was so perfect. I jus felt like she was being me.' And she said it without a hint of irony. She felt like she was portraying her in a favorable light. How one job of acting can be so spot on is hard to imagine. I wish she had done some more movies.

I agree. Her acting in that movie was superb. She played the antithesis of her TV characters.

I admit, I've still got a crush on Laura Petrie.

Very Happy

Watching the Dick van Dyke show gave me the confidence as a teenager to believe that even a dork like myself could find someone as as kind, clever and hot as Laura Petrie to fall for me.

Godspeed MTM you sure lit up the tube. Space aliens are enjoying the re-runs of the DVD show with Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie.

That was cool Jim. I saw The Runaways open for the Ramones. I used to work with the guy who started Joan, Kim Fowley...

Composer, Guitarist, former "Cricket", and Singer, Sonny Curtis wrote and performed the fabulous MTM theme song. IMHO after Andy Griffith's "Fishin' Hole" theme, this one is the best. https://youtu.be/zkuEfGZffRY

Well, you know I love Tommy like a brother, but on this particular occasion, he is misinformed. It was me. It was always me. You could just see it in her eyes...

A lot of people don't know that Mary was the "legs", voice, and hands seen only as the operator Sam on the old Richard Diamond(David Jansen) Private Detective Show on TV in the early 60's. They never showed her face, and she wasn't given credit for her part. It remained a mystery for years until she mentioned it in an interview once. What a sexy voice. A lady of so many acting talents. She was the inspiration for a lot of women who wanted to make a career for themselves.

Ok, so Tommy (and Jim) both loved Mary Tyler Moore, AND so did I! Such talent and personality - playing a strong woman with a certain vulnerability that most could relate to. Certainly, she was a role model! And, the hair ... The Mary Tyler Moore FLIP! So many of us tried to get that perfect flip. Here's mine before it sadly fell to ringlets after 3rd period P.E. (before blow dryers and curling irons.)
Very Happy

A lot of people probably don't know this, but Mary had type 1 diabetes. She was a role model and an inspiration to others with the disease, especially youngsters. She led a full life and lived to age 80. That's pretty inspirational.

Donna, you haven't changed a bit! 1967... I was a junior in high school that year.

She was a very talented woman whose lifer had some real tragedies, like the death of her son at 24. She said in an interview that she didn't view herself as a comic actress but as an actress who carefully studied comedy to act a role. Her timing with a joke was perfect but the result of very conscious though process. A comic actress like, say, Kate McKinnon is just naturally funny off the cuff. Mary had the work at it.
