Biography

A gifted comedienne with wonderful timing, lovely Elizabeth Montgomery also projected poise and intelligence, all of which helped to make her one of the most popular TV stars of the 1960s and '70s. Although her early credits included a promising Broadway debut in "Late Love" (1953-54) and a handful of movie roles, the lion's share of Montgomery's work was on television, first as a guest star on primetime programs like "Robert Montgomery Presents" (NBC, 1950-57) and "The Twilight Zone" (CBS, 1959-1964), and then as the star of the highly popular sitcom ""Bewitched" (ABC, 1964-72), which made her an overnight star. As suburban sorceress Samantha, Montgomery provided an endearing mix of beauty and charm, and the program's mix of verbal humor and magically-engineered sight gags quickly won over the public. When "Bewitched" finished its long run, Montgomery switched over to made-for-TV movies and displayed impressive dramatic credentials in popular and sometimes groundbreaking efforts like "The Victim" (ABC, 1972), "A Case of Rape" (NBC, 1974) and "The Legend of Lizzie Borden" (ABC, 1975). The combination of her fine dramatic work in these television features and the comedic abilities she displayed so richly throughout the long run of the legendary "Bewitched" series provided ample evidence of Montgomery's diversity and appeal as an actress.
