One Classy Dame
We've been missing Suzanne Pleshette lately; both her birthday (January 31, 1937) and the anniversary of her untimely death (January 19, 2008) are upcoming, but this gorgeous, glamorous lady deserves a mention at any given time.
She's best known, of course, for The Bob Newhart Show (1972-78); but as you might expect, we love the early 60's La Pleshette best, when she was co-starring with the likes of Ty Hardin, Rod Taylor, Bradford Dillman, and James Franciscus.
Suzanne Pleshette also was (briefly) married to Troy Donahue, a union which surely was second only to Liz and Dick in the annals of movie history.
We miss you, Suzanne! We're nutty for throaty, sexy, ballsy dames, and you're near the top of the heap.
