Jayne Meadows, RIP

17 posts in this topic

Jayne Meadows has died at 95. RIP.

I don't recall ever seeing any of her work. I just remember always seeing her on talk shows with Steve Allen (a favorite of mine).

This obit tells more of her career than I ever knew.

Well said. Don't think I can add anything to that.

Met her once while interviewing Steve. She had a powerful classy presence, was obviously damn smart, and she and Steve seemed like a terrific couple.

Steve Allen seemed like an intelligent guy, so it is easy to imagine that he would fall in love with an intelligent woman.

"Louis?"

I believe it was always spelled that way, never "Louie," even though it was pronounced "Loo-eee." But isn't that often the case -- see "Louis XIV."

I'll trust your memory, Larry. I don't remember him ever being called Louis.
