Jean Stapleton Stars As Eleanor Roosevelt

We recently came across this photo of Jean Stapleton, who was one of our most beloved actresses. She starred in the play Eleanor Roosevelt by Rhoda Lerman, performing all over the United States for 37 weeks.  While everyone may recognize Jean in her prominent role of Edith Bunker, it is her stage presence and her warm and darling personality that makes us miss her so!

    Dear Friends,
    As we are gearing up for the proverbial changing of the guard, we decided to take a moment to look back at an earlier at some of our earlier posts. We came across this one about Eleanor, starring Jean Stapleton. We thought it apropos on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, since it was a production about one of our most formidable First Ladies.
    All the best!
