Everybody Loves: Elizabeth Montgomery
Elizabeth Victoria Montgomery (April 15, 1933 – May 18, 1995). Best known for her role as the beautiful witch Samantha Stevens in the TV show Bewitched (1964-1972), Elizabeth was much more then just a clever sitcom actress. Staying close to TV for most of her career (she was in only 6 movies and never the star) and usually comedy, Elizabeth won multiple Emmy’s for her work. Straying from her usual light-hearted persona she starred as Lizzie Borden in 1975 TV movie The Legend of Lizzie Borden. From the looks of some of these first few photos, she could have easily been cast as the sex kitten, in the mold of Ann Margaret or Carol Baker, but decided to persue the role of the comedianne and all around good-egg, which she was as a strong activist agaisnt the war in Viet Nam, gay rights and later a campaigner for AIDS awareness. Elizabeth died in 1995 of colarectal cancer only 2 weeks after being diagnosed.
