5 overlooked performances by Mary Tyler Moore

I was eight. Nick at Nite, that mainstay of nineteen-nineties family-friendly throwback programming, was re-introducing the youth to Mary Tyler Moore through a week-long "Marython".

Four years later, Mary landed her career-defining role on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". Now, White has finally commented on the loss of her friend, paying tribute to the actress in happier times.

Carl Reiner has revealed he spoke to the husband of his long-time friend and colleague Mary Tyler Moore the day before she died. While she'll be remembered first as a television star, Moore was no less talented when appearing in film. We knew we were struggling with more than childhood's fight for supremacy and territory.

She could and did convey pluck and can-do spirit, of course - "You've got spunk", TV boss Lou Grant famously told Mary Richards. Her charm was apparent but she lacked the pathos or complexity of her future TV persona.

She won seven Emmy awards over the years. When I found out that Mary the person had her own TV company MTM Enterprises, I stopped simply admiring her and I started wanting to be her.

When legendary TV producer Carl Reiner was frustrated in his search for the ideal Laura after auditioning 26 actresses, Thomas suggested Moore, but they couldn't think of her name.

Her influence on TV and American womanhood was huge - even though the women she played on TV weren't.

Many of those moments came from "The Dick Van Dyke Show", his project starring Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore.

"At that point, she asks what she can do and one of the things we were looking for was a reproduction of wallpaper that Jackson had described". On paper, Laura and Mary were very different women who were both emblematic of their times, but in each of them there was something that seemed essentially Moore. "But she wanted to know what she could do and what she could continue to do".

How Trump's executive order impacts future of 'Obamacare'
A bill to formally repeal the law via budget reconciliation is expected from Republicans on January 27. During his campaign, Trump had vowed to repeal Obamacare and replace it with "something terrific".

"She was one of the coolest, one of the classiest, one of the funniest people ever". That's all well and good but I'm sure he knew that she was estranged from her only son, who, in fact, died in October 1980 in an accident with a sawed-off shotgun.
