Barbara Bel Geddes, the winsome actress who rose to stage and movie stardom but reached her greatest fame as Miss Ellie Ewing in the long-running TV series “Dallas,” has died. She was 82.
This is one of those where I thought she had been long dead. Who knew. You really should read the obituary. While I grew up knowing her from Dallas, I did not know she had such an illustrious career.
For example, Ms. Bel Geddes was the original Maggie in the broadway production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” a role made famous by Elizabeth Taylor.
