Imogene Coca...1908-2001

One of a kind....Imogene started her entertaining career
as a dancer in revues, cabaret and summer stock,
before her comic talent led her to a 
little show with Sid Caesar.

 Playing opposite Sid Caesar on "Your Show of Shows"
earned Imogene 5 Emmy nominations, 
a Best Actress win in 1951,
and a Peabody Award in 1953 for Excellence in Broadcasting.
 
With second husband, actor King Donovan
(he's the one on the right).

In the 1979 production of "On the Twentieth Century,"
in which Imogene played Letitia Primrose,
and received a Tony nomination.


At the recording session for "On the Twentieth Century,"
when she was 71.  Imogene continued to work well into her 80s,
doing TV, movies and voice overs.
