Susan Oliver Would’ve Been 83 Years Old Today

Posted on February 13, 2015 in News

While many of Susan Oliver’s peers (including those older than her) are still with us today, Susan sadly had to leave us back in 1990.  It’s a real shame she hasn’t been around to see her resurgence in popularity in recent years, thanks largely to the long-lost episodes of her many Classic TV shows (broadcast these days on MeTV, Antenna TV, Cozy TV and other “retro” stations).

I’d like to believe that The Green Girl documentary has also played at least some role in not only reminding those who’d forgotten about the remarkable Susan Oliver, but also in exposing younger generations to the unique talent and surprising life story of this amazing woman.

On your birthday, here’s to you, Susan!
