Remembering Suzanne Pleshette

Suzanne Pleshette film and TV actress, and NYC native, died of lung cancer at 70.. She is best known for her role as Emily Hartley, wife of psychologist Bob Hartley, on the “Bob Newhart Show”. I have fond memories of watching this show on Saturday nights in the 70s, while getting ready to go out with my friends.Most recently, she had a recurring role on “Will and Grace”.

But Pleshette also acted in beach party movies in the 60s. She played the role of Annie, the schoolteacher who rents a room in her Bodega Bay cottage to Tippi Hedren in Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. And she brilliantly portrayed hotelier Leona Helmsley, in a TV biopic about the “Queen of Mean”.

But I remember her best, saying “Oh Bob…”, kissing her hubby, and then rolling over to fall asleep in the 70s bedroom of a Chicago high-rise overlooking Lake Michigan.
