someone needs to give this woman a job!
I saw her in 2007, when she performed her one woman cabaret show. Tams had a slight case of the shakes, but she gave a very good performance. I see her mad hatter of a daughter around town sometimes, too.
I'm not making a negative remark here but could someone please explain the attraction of Tammy Grimes? I lived through--and ignored--her Broadway triumphs (?). Was she truly talented? Or someone who had her couple of seasons--and Tonys--in the limelight for whatever reasons.
Fredn - She's definitely not for everyone. And there's no middle ground: you either love her or hate her. I happen to love her. I really only know her through her recorded work, which I adore, and the cabaret show I mentioned above. Her film and TV appearances have mostly escaped my notice - except for her unfortunate appearance in Can't Stop the Music and her disastrous, self-titled 1966 sitcom, which may possibly be the most expensive, yet unfunny sitcom ever made.
Things might have been different for Tammy had she been cast as Samantha on Bewitched rather than Elizabeth Montgomery...but that’s history for ya.
I adore Liz Montgomery, and her girl-next-door, cool blonde persona gave Bewitched its strongest appeal - but you can see where the producers got the idea of casting Tammy originally. She certainly would have been the logical product of Endora! But the yin-and-yang of Liz & Agnes made for delightful contrast. A shame Tams didn't pick a better project for herself after turning it down...
