Are we "saddened" or "deeply saddened?"
The Premorse is very strong here.
I just felt like this needed more comments. She was wonderful as Alice (and won two Emmys in her prior role as Schultzy on The Bob Cummings Show, by the way). She was one of the things that made the show fun to watch. Always authentic, with great comic timing. She will be missed.
I also thought she was the only one on the show who seemed authentic. Everything else on the show seemed staged and corny to me as a kid (although I was still entertained, I WANTED to be in the Bradys, because it was so far removed from my argumentative, dysfunctional real family). Alice seemed to have a "life" off the main stage of the show, which I fantasized as being genuine.
