Our Miss Arden

Here was a character actress of the highest order which is why she getting her own posting and doesn't have to share it with others as I usually have done.  Eve Arden had occasional leading roles and excelled in dramas, comedies and musicals.  By far her most popular role, the one that accords her lasting fame is Our Miss Brooks, which she first played on the radio, then as a popular television series and finally as a movie.  I always thought she was a hoot, didn't you?
