She did not travel by air or elevator. She traveled by rail across the country, and traveled by ship across the ocean, instead of by plane.
Received the Actors Studio Award in 1980 for her contributions to the theatre.
Inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame on April 5, 1981.
In 1981, Hudson Valley Community College in her hometown of Troy, New York, named their theatre after her.
Received a 1975 Grammy Award nomination in the Best Spoken Word category for her recording of \"To Kill a Mockingbird\".
Mother of two children by her first husband, Max Allentuck: Daniel V. Allentuck and Katherine Allentuck (Bambery).
Took over the role of Rosa della Rosa because Anna Magnani (who was old enough to be her mother) didn\'t speak English well enough to essay the role on Broadway, so this young Irish Catholic from Troy played an Italian \"Earth Mother\" on Broadway to critical and popular acclaim!
