Sandra gould

Born in Brooklyn, New York on July 23, 1916, Sandra Gould was a Jewish-American actress best known for her role as Gladys Kravitz on the Sixties TV-series, "Bewitched." Her earliest roles were usually non-credit character roles in movies, such as "T-Men" in 1947), and "Romance on the High Seas" in 1948 with Doris Day in her big screen debut. Her first on-screen credit was in the movie, "The Story of Molly X" in 1949 She also enjoyed a four-year run as Miss Duffy, the man-hungry daughter in the radio program, "Duffy's Tavern." In 1953, she starred in the series, "Letter to Loretta" with Loretta Young. Through the Fifties and Sixties, her short and chubby, chipmunk-like face and familiar abrasive tone landed her roles in a string of TV comedies, such as "I Love Lucy," "The Flintstones," "The Twilight Zone," "The Lucy Show," "I Dream of Jeannie" and Gilligan's Island. She had a more prominent supporting role in "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" with Don Knotts and her future "Bewitched" co-star, Dick Sargent in 1966. In 1963, she released the comedy single record, "Hello Melvin," an response to Allan Sherman's hit "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh." In September 1966, Gould replaced Alice Pearce as Gladys Kravitz for the color episodes of "Bewitched" after Pearce passed away from ovarian cancer. Her over-the-top performance and shrill voice were popular with viewers, ultimately making the character her own. She remained with the series through the rest of the series and reprising it in its unofficial spin-off, "Tabitha." Gould afterward went on to make appearances on "Columbo," "The Brady Bunch," "Adam-12," "Punky Brewster," "Friends" and "Veronica's Closet." During her career, she also wrote two books, "Always Say Maybe" and "Sexpots and Pans," both published by Golden Press. She had married two times; she was the widow of broadcasting executive Larry Berns, with whom she had a son, and wife of television/film director Hollingsworth Morse. Gould died on July 20, 1999 in Burbank, California following heart surgery, three days before her 83rd birthday
