She was the witty actress and television personality who is best remembered as a panelist on the popular "What's My Line?". During the 1950s she was one of the busiest persons on television. At one point she was host of "Home" on NBC five days a week, mistress of ceremonies of "Talent Patrol" on ABC Thursday nights and panelist on "What's My Line?" on CBS Sunday nights. She always wore a diamond heart shaped necklace which was noticed by TV viewers and jewelry designers triggering a diamond heart fad in the mid-1950s. (bio by: Ron Moody)
