Elisabeth Fraser Has Died

Unread post by Teachers_Pet »


Elisabeth Fraser, the durable character actress who portrayed St. Bilko's love interest in the 1950's series "The Phil Silvers Show," has died. She was 85.

Fraser died Thursday of congestive heart failure at the Motion Picture and Television hospital in the Woodland Hills section of Los Angeles. The Brooklyn native began her 40-year acting career in the 1940 Broadway production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "There Shall Be No Night" starring Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fontanne, and Sydney Greenstreet.

Fraser's role as the ingenue earned her a Warner Bros. film contract, and she soon was acting in such films as "The Man Who Came to Dinner" with Bette Davis and "One Foot in Heaven" with Fredric March and Martha Scott. Among Fraser's more than 30 films were "Young at Heart" with Doris Day and Frank Sinatra in 1954, "The Graduate" in 1967 and her last, "Nine to Five" in 1980.

So Sad for Doris. She's outlived most of her family and colleages and friends.
