BIOGRAPHY:

Mary Tyler Moore was an American actress, known for her roles in the television sitcoms The Mary Tyler Moore Show, in which she starred as Mary Richards, a thirtyish single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis, and The Dick Van Dyke Show, in which she played Laura Petrie, a former dancer turned Westchester homemaker, wife and mother. Her notable film work includes 1967's Thoroughly Modern Millie and 1980's Ordinary People, in which she played a role that was very different from the television characters she had portrayed, and for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress.


TRIVIA:
  • Ex-stepmother of 'John Tinker' (qv) and 'Mark Tinker' (qv).
  • (1984) Entered 'Betty Ford' (qv) clinic for "Social Drinking Habit".
  • Bronze statue capturing her character Mary's signature hat-toss went on display May 8, 2002 at the Minneapolis intersection where the scene for _"Mary Tyler Moore" (1970)_ (qv) was originally filmed. On hand for the ceremony, Moore tossed her tam, but this time, into an appreciative downtown crowd.
  • Walked out of the 'Neil Simon (I)' (qv) play "Rose's Dilemma" in December, 2003, citing problems with the playwright. Reportedly he sent her an insulting note prior to an appearance regarding her failure to memorize lines. The problem was that he had kept rewriting her lines and expected her to learn them on the spot. She was replaced by actress 'Patricia Hodges (I)' (qv), but the play closed two months later to poor reviews.
  • Was paired with 'Richard Chamberlain (I)' (qv) in 1967 for "Holly Golightly," a musical adaptation of 'Truman Capote' (qv)'s earlier novel (and film), _Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)_ (qv). When it became obvious during pre-Broadway tryouts that no amount of play-doctoring was going to save a potentially disasterous show, producer 'David Merrick (I)' (qv) announced that he was closing the show one week prior to it's scheduled Broadway opening, as he put it, "out of consideration for the audience."
  • Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (insulin dependent) at age 33.
  • Broke her kneecap after tripping over her adopted dog, Spanky [June 2, 2008].
  • Received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1992.
