    the SOCIAL SECURITY LISTING below
    which matches the interment listing on
    FIND A GRAVE information provided by
    one HENRY GAUGERT.

    13. Mary MOOREHEAD - U.S. Social Security Death Index
    Birth: 24 Aug 1911 State Where Number was Issued: Ohio Death: 1 Apr 1990

    If you're certain that this is incorrect, please let me know because I don't want to use that source any longer is that's the case.
    I am the Henry Gaugert listed above, I was contacted about the Wisconsin connection and have since changed the data on Mary Moorehead. Sorry about the mistake, but there was a Mary Moorehead from Ohio who died in 1990, it seemed a logical outcome.

    OK SO THIS WOMAN BORN IN 1911 CAN'T BE AGNES' MOTHER AGNES WAS BORN IN 1900. WHERE IS AGNES' MOM BURIED? THIS IS CONFUSING ME.

    Her mother is buried in the same crypt in Dayton as Agnes. Her mother was Mary Moorehead, who died in 1990, age 106.

    I Recently Bought Bewitched Season 6 On Dvd I Have The Other 5 Seasons On Dvd. I Loved Her Heated Arguing Scenes With Dick York's "derwood" Darrin I Heard Agnes Liked Working With Dick York Better Than She Did Dick Sargent.

    That sounds interesting, need to know more information

    another must-see

    if you ever have the opportunity, check out the ep of Night Gallery she was in, called "Certain Shadows on the Wall" -- she plays a dying woman. I have witnessed people days away from their deaths -- they don't look like they do in the movies, lying quietly in bed spouting wisdom. She NAILED it.

    I saw that Twilight Zone episode you mentioned, Robert. Loved her in it. I don't think she had one speaking line in the whole episode.

    In the 1956 photo, why are the actresses leaning back on boards? Is it because they don't want their gowns to get wrinkled? I've never seen that before.

    That is exactly why. They were common devices to be found on film sets so that the actresses wouldn't wrinkle their costumes.

    That's so awful. Knowing your mother is a very well liked actress, and having living a life as a street person. I'm suprised he didn't come forward and write a tell-all book about his mother like Joan Crawford's daughter did.

Getting shinned on, her husband away on business she has unknowingly overhead her own murder over the phone when the lines got crossed. Great radio show of the 50s and even better movie.
    As a HUGE fan of the radio show "Suspense", I must correct this. It was "Sorry, Wrong Number" that you were talking about. She was not in the movie. Barbara Stanwyck was, and I didn't like the movie nearly as much as the multiple broadcasts starring Agnes.

    I hope this didn't come across as bitchy or know-it-all. That was certainly not my intention. I am just a fan of the stars of Hollywood's "Golden Age"....my favorite to appear on "Suspense" was June Havoc. What a magnificent voice!

    Agnes was in a silly little cult film called "The Bat," which also starred Vincent Price and Darla Hood in one of her few appearances in a film as an adult.

    In the book about her father, written by Victoria Price, someone mentioned to Vincent that when Agnes died, someone wrote on her Hollywood Star "Agnes is God."

    Vincent replied that she certainly thought she was!

    One of my all time favorite scenes with Miss Moorehead, is in "Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte". Though she dies for her efforts at the hands of deHavilland, I hung on to every word Agnes said to Olivia and thought...You Rock Lady!

    On a spooky note...shortly after Miss Moorehead passed away I heard a story about the making of "The Conqueror" 1956. It was stated that most of the people making and working on that film died of cancer. It was attributed to the fact that the picture was filmed on a test site. See link.

    Nice birthday post above-I had forgotten it was today.
    I had the privilege of taking care of her at the Sauk County Health Care Center in Reedsburg, WI before she passed away. She was known as Mollie there. She did in fact live to be 107 years old.

    I use to think Agnes was british or something because her accent didn't sound American on Bewitched. and I was recently watching interviews with Agnes on YouTube and her appearances on game shows. she sounded like she was from Britain or somewhere but she was apparently born and raised here in the states.

    Just caught the episode where Endora meets her son-in-law for the first time. Very touching when Darrin opens the door and Endora's standing there, looking apprehensive and vulnerable. Bewitched at its start definitely had a charm in its scripts that it lost as time went on. Larry firing Darrin every other week wears thin, and why the fuck did Darrin focus almost exclusively on printed ads - this was the 60s for Christ's sake, the TV age ! Too bad they didn't maintain the quality of the scripts as time went on. Agnes played a very sophisticated woman at first, but way too soon she was stooging it up, popping-in long enough just to cast a spell to fuck-up "Durwood's" day yet again.

    The above website mentions in its 10/12/19 post that her foster son / adopted son died in 1996.

    I have the first two seasons on DVD, IMO they were the best. It was tough for them to replace Alice Pearce and Marion Lorne, they should have left that alone. When Dick York left they should have called it a day. I just watched Agnes in a couple of films The Opposite Sex playing a flighty Countess and The Revolt Of Mamie Stover as a tough as nails madam. Different as night and day, which made her such a great actress. I still think she was robbed of the Oscar for The Magnificent Ambersons. I love that episode when she meets Darrin, very touching work from both her and Dick.

    I read that she was a very religious person. She used to read Bible stories to Erin Murphy. Being brought up in the color t.v. age, I remember Sandra Gould first. It was interesting the first time seeing Alice Pearce as Gladys. She did such a good job in that role. Of course, I always loved Aunt Clara.

    Sandra Gould was all wrong for that part.

    This sounds so strange if true.
