Actress Eve Arden (April 30, 1908 – November 12, 1990). Her almost 60-year
career included many supporting and leading roles in film, radio and television, but
she is perhaps best remembered for playing a high school teacher in the classic
sitcom Our Miss Brooks. It began as a radio show broadcast on CBS from 1948
to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952–56), it became one of the medium’s earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for the big screen with the
same name. Arden also has special guest appearances as Rydell High School
principal McGee in the films Grease (1978) and Grease 2 (1982). She was
inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1995.
