Remembering Natalie Schafer

The lovely Natalie Schafer was born on this day in 1900. Few knew her real age until her death in 1991. She was the longtime girlfriend of American humorist George S. Kaufman. She reportedly left a large part of her multi-million-dollar estate to Dawn Wells, with whom she co-starred on Gilligan's Island as Lovey Howell. Wells has never commented.

Natalie - "Lovey" - What a GREAT actress! I will never forget you on "I Love Lucy" and "Gilligan's Island"! My favorite line of yours on "Lucy" was "Let the hips carry the body"!!! You were wonderful and you are sadly missed. Rest In Peace, sweet lady.

Just a short clip like that explains how she could steal a whole movie no matter how small her role.
