Just saw the news.

She truly did "turn the world on with her smile."

She devoted her energies throughout her life to work on behalf of those with juvenile diabetes, and to animal rights. She will be missed.

Another American treasure is gone. RIP, Mary.

"Oh Mr. Grant!" The MTM show was great with wonderful characters. And then there's Betty White still going strong at 95!

I think she was a great role model for women of my generation. The Mary Tyler Moore Show was inspirational for young women at that time.

An old joke from that era: MTM was the woman that every single guy wanted to introduce to his mother as his fiancée.

The Nightly Newses all ran a retrospective of her career, all the way back to her role in that Private Eye series with Richard Janssen. She was unseen -- switchboard operator's voice only. Those early Dick Van Dyke shows were wonderful.

And what a great Dancer. Anytime she got the chance to show off her moves, she was all that !!


RIP Mary.

I was in high school and then in college when the MTM Show aired in the 70's. It certainly motivated me to want a career and my own apartment in the big city. Years later I read how she made the cast feel like family and how desperately some of the actors needed a job at the time and their appreciation.

She was my pre-adolescent crush.

I recall they did show part of her leg. Just a tease!

There is a one-hour special tonight on CBS.

Loved her performance in Ordinary People, probably my favorite movie. Reminded me of my mom. And of course, I thought MTM Show was one of the funniest around, back in the day. Sorry to hear she's gone.

I don't tend to follow actress/actresses much, so I can't say I'm a big fan, but I do recall seeing some of her dance routines, and she seemed very talented. And she always seemed bright and smart and funny in interviews, she had quite a career.

I was looking for a clip from youtube, came close but no cigar. Might have been the very first show, she was interviewing with Lou Grant, and he ask a personal question, she doesn't want to answer, but the next question is even more personal, so she answers the previous question. IIRC, this goes on for a while, with her answers one question behind. I just remember it was really funny, and maybe you could even say choreographed like a dance routine. Very ingenious. If anyone finds a clip, please share. The ones I found are just the end - Lou Grant says "You have spunk!", It seems like a compliment so MTM grins and says well, yes, Lou Grant shouts back "I Hate Spunk!"

I haven't heard what she actually died from - was it a general deterioration from the effects of diabetes?
