September 24 - Audra Lindley



Happy Broadway Birthday to Audra Lindley!

Audra Marie Lindley was ‘born in a trunk’ to show business parents in Los Angeles, California, in 1918. Her father played bit parts in films for more than twenty years and her mother was a stand-in and stunt woman. Like her mother, she did uncredited extra work in films before heading to New York to pursue stage acting. She made her Broadway debut in the 1942 comedy “Comes the Revelation” which played just two performances at Jolson’s 59th Street Theatre. It was four years before she returned to Broadway, at the Playhouse Theatre in “Hear That Trumpet.” The “Trumpet” sounded for a single week in October 1946. The following year she was in the comedy “Heads or Tails” with Werner Klemperer (“Hogan’s Heros”) at the Cort. She got replacement work in the N. Richard Nash play “The Young and Fair” staged by Harold Clurman late in 1948. After that she turned to the medium of television, appearing on many daytime dramas and evening play broadcasts. As this work was in New York City, she also had time to serve as a replacement in the Broadway drama “A Case of Libel” in 1964. In 1967 Lindley appeared at the ANTA Playhouse in the surprise hit “Spofford” with Melvyn Douglas and Pert Kelton. Her final appearance on the Great White Way was in the 1969 flop “Fire!” starring Rene Auberjonois and Louis Edmonds of “Dark Shadows” fame. I suppose audiences were told not to yell the title in theatre theatre as the crowds stayed away and the “Fire!” was put out after just six performances. Lindley, of course, returned to television work where her popularity hit a peak playing Mrs. Roper on TV’s “Three’s Company” and its spin-off “The Ropers.” Her last TV appearance was on “Cybill” with her final episode aired posthumously. Lindley was married twice, the second time to actor James Whitmore. She had five children by her first husband, Dr. Hardy Ulm.
