form-fitting gown and an ornate hairdo. This was to be a bit of an omen for a whole new chapter in her life.
Bea Arthur also popped up in it.
filmed interview with Howes afterwards. The steel door on her dressing room became locked and impenetrable, causing her to be stuck inside for a time and unable to make it to the stage for her next scene! Lawrence was forced to ad-lib for ten minutes until she could be freed and brought out to perform.
quiz shows of the day like I've Got a Secret, Password and, in particular, To Tell the Truth.

ragged videos still exist out there.
Jeffrey Hunter. A little-known fact (which was unknown to me prior to researching this post!) is that she and Hunter dated for a while and almost got engaged! One thing that may have led to the fizzling of this relationship was the fact that she was heading back to England for what would be more than a year of preparation and filming her next project...
Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke in another musical, with songs by the same duo, The Sherman Brothers. Andrews passed on the part, which next fell into Howe's lap. She immediately underwent dance training (for numbers to be staged by the same team who handled The Sound of Music, 1965) and met up with Van Dyke in England for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
The Baroness, too, when I was a child!) She was radiant in the role and sported a parade of frilly fashion confections throughout. Lastly, I, for one, was utterly petrified of Robert Helpmann as The Child Catcher and didn't go near an ice cream truck for years!
Barbara Bain (who'd left during a contract dispute involving her husband) on Mission: Impossible. She filled in, looking very glamorous in the show's opening moments, for a 1969 installment of the venerable spy show, but ultimately the series went with the surprising choice of young Lesley Ann Warren as a female regular. Howes had a third (very brief) marriage around this time as well.
She was still on hand for television games shows from time to time, as on What's My Line?, where she still brought all the same wacky enthusiasm she'd displayed a decade prior on other shows.
