Have a Seegar !!

Sara Seegar gives a great comic turn as a client's wife Mrs. Baker in the clip below.

(Why did so many clients on Bewitched have names that began with B ?)

In the episode, she sees some witchcraft from baby Tabitha and mom Samantha must convince her that she only witnessed a harmless, run of the mill haunting. (Oh!! why can't real life offer these scenarios?)

You may remember her as Mrs. Wilson from one year on Dennis the Menace or as the drama teacher for Peter Brady's "benedict arnold" play. She was also one of the River City Iowa ladies in The Music Man.

Her husband Ezra Stone directed many a 60s TV classic.

Sara Seegar died in 1990. She had acted on stage, screen and TV for 40+ years.

Here is her obit from 1990. Cool lady.

Here's some hideous trivia: 1990 was the year that moviefans also lost Barbara Stanwyck, Greta Garbo, Irene Dunne, Paulette Goddard, Joan Bennett, Eve Arden and Barbara Baxley of "Nashville" fame.

I met Ezra not too long after his wife's passing and he spoke of her constantly. He just adored her!
