RIP Elaine Stritch 1925 to 2014

Postby Ilovesteptoe » Sun Jul 20, 2014 3:27 pm

Sadly it's been announced that comedy Actress/singer Elaine Stritch has died aged 89yrs. :|

Although actress/singer & broadway star of note in the USA she was best known to UK television viewers of classic 70s sitcom Twos Company. She played American author Dorothy McNab residing in London. As she spends most of her days writing, she hires an English butler, Robert Hiller ( Donald Sinden), to help run her Chelsea home. Being the epitome of the English gentleman, Robert does not approve of Dorothy's lurid thriller novels or her American ways. Much of the comedy stems from the banter between the two, as they continually disagree due to their cultural differences and often try to outwit each other. The series which ran for 4 series from 1975 to 1979 with 29 episodes.

Oh really, excellent! I used to love that series with her & Donald Sinden in the late seventies as we didn't to hear many American accents usually in UK sitcoms, and like most things especially 70s sitcoms with the passage of time they get forgotten until until we sadly hear this news of a stars passing which it brings it all back again.
