Memorial to Elizabeth Montgomery

Elizabeth Montgomery Site Dedication

Elizabeth Montgomery was born either April 13, 1933, according to her studio biography and numerous interviews, or 1938, according to her family and publicist. The daughter of actors Robert Montgomery and Elizabeth Allen, she appeared in more than 250 live TV productions and two dozen theatrical and TV movies. She was the last surviving regular cast member of her long-running TV series "Bewitched," which ran from 1964 to 1972 on ABC, in which she played Samantha Stephens, a witch married to a mortal man. The series was responsible for five of her nine Emmy nominations, and it averaged a 22.6 rating and 35% audience share for its entire eight-year run, and was the number one show for four of those years. Until the advent of Happy Days, it was the network's highest-rated half-hour prime-time series ever aired. It's 254 episodes continue to air the world over.

Elizabeth's television debut was on her father's drama series Robert Montgomery Presents, although she had previously played ingenues on broadway. In addition, she played on series such as The Untouchables, for which she won her first Emmy nomination. Her first theatrical movie was The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell, with Gary Cooper, followed a few years later by Johnny Cool, starring Sammy Davis, Jr., followed by Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed, with Dean Martin.

She was married four times, first to Fred Cammann, second to actor Gig Young and third to William Asher, who produced Bewitched, among other shows. Liz and Bill Asher divorced amicably in the mid-70's. They had three children, William, Jr., Robert and Rebecca. In 1975 she moved in with actor Robert Foxworth and they married some years later.

Lizzie, as she preferred to be called, was a staple of TV drama for 20 years. She preferred movies with a message, and throughout her career fought intolerance and prejudice. She rarely attended show business functions, but regularly appeared at benefits. Among her personal crusades was AmFAR, The American Foundation for AIDS research and she regularly supported liberal causes. In March, 1995, she was diagnosed with cancer and, after a short illness of only eight weeks, died on May 18, 1995.
