Lawrence--

 

Thanks for doing this. I would never have remembered her name. Madeleine was outstanding in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof as the mother of the " no-neck monsters".

 

Looking at her in a photo as that character today-- always pregnant, with all those kids and her attitude in the role-- do you think Tennessee Williams knew Ethel Kennedy very well?

 

I think she even looks like Ethel Kennedy in this still photo.

I remember her in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, she was excellent in that film.  In The Flying Nun, even though the show was lame, I did like Sally Field and Sherwood's characters.  Her character kind of kept all the wacky nuns in line. 

 

RIP.

Sherwood seemed drawn to Southern-based dramas. She also was in Otto Preminger's "Hurry Sundown" (1967), which starred Jane Fonda, Sir Michael Caine, Diahann Carroll, Faye Dunaway, Burgess Meredith, George Kennedy and Jim Backus.

Excellent actress! I always liked disliking her, as she made being annoying so real. RIP!
