Alice Ghostley Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Alice, featured in some thirty films, including To Kill a Mocking Bird (1962) and The Graduate (1967), never won an Oscar. However, in 1969, she accepted one for her close friend and fellow Broadway revue (New Faces) alumna, Maggie Smith, when she was honored with the Academy Award for Best Actress for the title role in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Miss Smith, in London the night of the award presentation, was unable to attend; Miss Ghostley claimed the Oscar on her behalf.
