the blogosphere is comparing the Romneys to the Howells on "Gilligan's Island." I'm loving it because it's bringing some attention to Natalie Schafer who playd Lovey Howell.
she had a long career appearing on stage on screen on tv. she did a guest spot on "I Love Lucy" & had a wonderful part in Joseph Pevney's "Female on the Beach." I first saw the character actress in "The Killing of Sister George" at Cleveland's Hanna Theater in 1968. but my fondest memory of her was at Shrine Auditorium in 1987. I was there for an all-star production calld "Happy Birthday Hollywood." those sitting in center orchestra were seatd by celebs. & my celeb was none other than Schafer. of course she was nearing 90 so was a bit delicate but still steady. I recall her looking closely at my ticket then leading me down to my seat. such a sweet moment.
