Short, with a character actress's face and a familiar New Yorker's abrasive, nasal tone of voice, Sandra Gould was made for radio. She capped a long, successful radio career with a 15-year stint on Jack Benny's legendary, award-winning show. By the late-1940's, She had moved into bit character roles in movies - often as a stereotypical, rude New Yorker.
By the early i950's, Sandra became a regular on I Married Joan
, while also appearing in many other television series. In 1966, she caught the break of her life, replacing Alice Pearce (who passed away) as Gladys Kravitz, the neighborhood snoop, in the c sitcom Bewitched
(1964). Her last appearance on television, on her 48th different show, came in 1999 on Veronica's Closet
- only six months before she passed away, three days shy of her 83rd birthday.
