Happy Birthday To Elizabeth Montgomery!

Some Elizabeth Montgomery/"Bewitched" trivia in celebration of her birthday today:

* Elizabeth's grounbreaking TV-movie, "A Case Of Rape," became one of the Top Ten Highest-rated TV-movies of all-time - and was one of the first issue-oriented TV-movies in history (exploring the topic of spousal abuse -ten years before Farrah Fawcett did the same with "The Burning Bed").

* Elizabeth's TV-movie, "The Legend of Lizzie Borden" became one of the first DOCU-DRAMAS ever made.

* Elizabeth was nominated for an Emmy for her performance as a "lady of the evening" in an episode of "The Untouchables" - in which she appeared with future "Bewitched" co-star David "Larry Tate" White.

* Elizabeth did not speak a word of dialogue in an episode of "The Twilight Zone" called, "Two." Meanwhile, too, Agnes Moorehead, another of Elizabeth's future "Bewitched" co-stars, also appeared in a TZ segment - in which she played a MUTE. And we heard Dick "Darrin #1" York's THOUGHTS in the TZ episode, "A Penny For Your Thoughts."

Oh, the irony!
