She is, of course, Mary Tyler Moore and she turns 75 years old today!

I have every season of both shows on DVD and when I want to watch something of quality, smart comedy that really stands the test of time, I will watch those shows.

Mary won two Emmys as Laura Petrie and four as Mary Richards. Her seventh came years later for a villainous in the TV movie Stolen Babies.

Miss Moore has excelled in both drama and comedy winning a Golden Globe Award and being nominated for an Oscar for her performance as an ice cold mother in Ordinary People and winning a special Tony Award for her performance in the play Whose Life Is It Anyway?

Mary is one of the all-time greats and next month, will receive the Screen Actors Guild’s Lifetime Achievement Award. She was one of the first inductees into the Television Academy’s Hall of Fame and, if there’s any justice, will be a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors next year.

Here are some clips to remind us of the greatness of Mary:

One Remark

  1. “…a little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants.” I couldn’t have said it any better. Thanks for the laughs, Chuckles. And Mary, Betty, and the rest of the gang, particularly, the writers, who produced spectacularly-funny stuff, week after week.
