She had a great comedic gift & she had spunk. RIP Mary.

RIP, Mary.

That screen grab is hilarious. I remember as a boy seeing the sour look on that old woman's face. I wonder if that was natural or a setup. Seems natural to me.

That was a great ensemble for that show. Ted Knight, Gavin McLeod, Ed Asner, Cloris Leachman, Valerie Harper, Betty White, Nancy Walker, Georgia Engle.

That Chuckles episode, the cast couldn't stop laughing.

The woman Mary portrayed back then was no way near the way women are today. Protest??? a democratic election????

What a different feel to this world now.

That lady's name was Hazel Frederick. She was there by accident and her reaction is genuine. More here:

That's some extreme ignorance from you.

Four million women did not protest a democratic election. They protested to uphold the values and rights his policies might threaten.

My favourite 70's sitcoms growing up as a kid were Mary Tyler Moore, All In The Family, Taxi, WKRP in Cincinnati, and Soap. Incredible loss for such a beautiful and talented comedian, who sadly had a rough go of it in recent years being almost completely blind. Diabetes is a horrible disease. RIP Mary.

With Mary's passing, along with Mike Connors, who starred in Mannix, the numbers of actors who were the stars of 1970s television series and are still alive, is seriously dwindling. We recently lost Debbie Reynolds (The Debbie Reynolds Show), James Garner (The Rockford Files) and Abe Vigoda (Fish and Barney Miller), as well.

The CBC's Passionate Eye just ran a great homage to Mary Tyler Moore.
