Quite a few posters on all that chat say that Lois Nettleton has died. I can't find anything on the internet about it. Does anyone know for sure?

I have such good memories of that marvelous actress.

I remember her from the Twilight Zone episode The Midnight Sun among other roles.

A very underrated actress

She was also the lesbian on that wonderful Golden Girls episode. I saw that episode again last week on Lifetime.
I also remember a tv movie with her and Ida Lupino. It was a prison picture and Lois had gone undercover to investigate prison brutality. Lupino was the prison matron. I can't remember the name of it.

Yeah, Retro, that's it. I think it may have been an ABC TV Movie of the Week. If anyone else is old enough to remember those.

I fondly remember Ms. Nettleton as one of the three man chasing stewrdesses in the 1964 comedy, COME FLY WITH ME alongside Dolores Hart and Pamela Tiffin.

Unfortunately, I remember the ABC Movies Of The Week

I refer to my age & not to the quality of the movies.

Some of the better ones should be released on DVD

It is always great watch than unknowns show their acting chops.

Mr. Roxy, I was just thinking the same thing. I would love to have some of those movies on DVD. I remember Ida giving it to Lois in the stomach with those prison keys. I can't believe I remember that movie. I know it was the early 70's.

I have always heard that Lois was a great Blanche DuBois.

I remember movies of the week, the million dollar movie in the afternoon, Mike Douglas, Dinah, and the wonderful Lois Nettleton. I hope the rumor is false.
I killed the boss, you don't think they're gonna fire me over a thing like that!!!!

She was also in the film version of "Best Little Whorehouse In Texas." Her part was butchered during the editing process. Too bad that back then, no one thought to think of saving deleted scenes and musical numbers. A friend of mine was in the film, she was one of Mona's girls, and 3 big musical numbers were cut from the final film.

I just read another message board where people were discussing her death, but I can't find real confirmation.

Did anyone see her as Blanche?

On Talkingbroadway.com, there's a thread in the ALL THAT CHAT section that mentions a New York Times article. Was just on their site and there's nothing........nothing on New York Post, either.

Lois Nettleton was not one of Mona's girls in "Whorehouse" she played "Dulcie Mae".

I saw her play Desiree in a production of A Little Night Music in LA back in the mid eighties. I left at intermission.

I saw that...shall I say "unfortunate" production of A Little Night Music.

Glebb... you a smarter person than I am ... I DIDN'T leave at intermission and I still ache at the memory.

I skipped that production of "Night Music" in L.A., but I seem to remember she came in at the last minute to replace Lee Remmick, who had become terminally ill with cancer.

Best, I'm almost positive that's right about Remmick. I think John McMartin may have been in that. Not sure.

I can't access that video, sorry.

I'm thinking that Lee might have kept me in my seat until the final curtain but I just didn't like that production at all. Unless I'm blending some other production in with this one, Glynis Johns played Madame Armfeldt.
