As you know from past blogs that I am a big fan of The Munsters The Beauty of The Munsters & The Addams Family. Working as a Universal Studios Tour guide, I have seen the Munsters House inside and out more than most people have watched the series. I am saddened by the loss of Yvonne De Carlo. Ms. Decarlo took the part of "Lily" on "The Munsters" to help pay husband Bob Morgan's medical bills. Morgan, an actor/stuntman, had suffered near-fatal injuries while filming "How the West Was Won." By her own admission, Ms. De Carlo never imagined, that "Lily Munster" would become her most famous role. Along with her work in film and Television Ms. DeCarlo performed on Broadway, notably in the role of Carlotta Campion, introducing the song "I'm Still Here" in the Stephen Sondheim musical Follies.
To Quote Lily Munster, "Oh, Marilyn... the circles under your eyes. How lovely you look today".
Good Night Ms. De Carlo
