Actress, Virginia Gregg

Since we have been watching TV on an old fashioned antenna instead of cable or satellite we have reconnected with old favorites. We watch Perry Mason, Ironside, The Rifleman, Emergency, Hawaii 5-O, Gunsmoke, The Big Valley, Dragnet, M*A*S*H, Daniel Boone, Bonanza, Adam-12, Cannon, F-Troop, Kojak, The Rebel, Remington Steele, The Rockford Files, The Streets of San Francisco, The Twilight Zone, Wagon Train, Rawhide, and Colombo to name a few.

One of my favorite actresses that shows up on a regular basis is Virginia Gregg. Most people don't recognize her name like they do the major stars such as Raymond Burr, Chuck Connors, Jack Lord, James Arness, Barbara Stanwyck, Jack Webb, William Conrad, Pierce Brosnan, Peter Falk, or Clint Eastwood, but we see her on may shows over and over.

Dragnet is one of the shows that she shows up on in all types of parts. She is one of the most versatile actresses I have seen. She may not have been a headliner, but she was one busy lady. We also have a lot of old radio show programs that she has a part in. The only time I haven't recognized her voice is when she plays Rick's girlfriend Helen Asher on Richard Diamond, Private Detective. One thing I didn't realize until I read Wikipedia was that she was the voice of Mrs. Bates on the Psycho movies. If I was so inclined to be an actor I would want to be her!

Who is one of your favorite actors and why?
