The Spirit of Alice Ghostely

Alice Ghostely died this weekend. Her partner in weekend mortal coil shuffling-off, Marcel Marceau, was a master of comedy and drama with his body but Ghostely was all about her voice. Whether singing beautifully or quavering comically she was a delight -- a highlight of weekdays watching Bewitched reruns as a child. Here is a rare clip of her with a delicious -looking Patty Duke from the 1971 hippie-dippy TV movie Two on a Bench . She plays Duke's mother, a kleptomaniac, and she gives a how-to here in how to steal a scene by chomping on the scenery.
