Barbara Harris

Tony-winning actress ('The Apple Tree') -- via the Chicago Sun-Times. A largely unsung performer who was brilliant but didn't like the spotlight. She was a co-founder of Second City, an improvisational genius who was in the first number of the first S.C. show. You have to look to find her in films, but if you do you find great performances in such movies as Who is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?, Nashville, Family Plot, and the original Freaky Friday.
