Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Several generations recall Peggy Cass as a perennial panelist on TV game and quiz shows, most notably "To Tell the Truth", yet Cass, with her scratchy voice, Boston accent and strawberry blonde hair, was also an accomplished stage actress. Her most notable stage role was Agnes Gooch in the Broadway production of "Auntie Mame", a role she recreated in the 1958 film version starring Rosalind Russell.
