SHE BEWITCHED US WITH CHARM


Can you believe this amazing actress would have been  116 today! I have only seen Agnes Moorehead in a few movies, all of which I loved and of course adored her in the reruns of Bewitched! And I ask, could anyone do a blue eyeshadow better?

"Permissiveness in society springs from a lack of standards. There must be a rule of behavior, an appreciation of basic values"

"Nudity begins at home. After all, who wants to see everybody flying around in their birthday suit? It takes all the magic and illusion out of the theatre."

" Legalizing prostitution wouldn't make any difference these days anyway. The whole country is loose, so what's the difference. I don't care what everybody else is doing. I just look at whether it's right or wrong."

"It's an unavoidable truth. Fear of life closes off more opportunities for us than fear of death ever does"


A Happy Birthday to You!!!!

  1. I once read somewhere that she had her New York City apartment recreated in house form in LA so that that when she was shooting Bewitched she'd feel at home; she even had two of everything purchased so she'd never be without no matter where she was living.
    I don't know if it's true, but I loved the idea.

  3. By many accounts, she was an absolute c**t in real life, but Miss Moorehead remains a camp icon to this day, nonetheless!! Jx

    2. I believe Moorehead played Endora. But there was another actress who played Samantha's Aunt Clara.

  5. I loved Moorehead ever since I first saw her as bitchy Aunt Reed in "Jane Eyre".
