Habitues of the late-night [[Feature~V119002~Jack Paar Program~theprogram]] first became aware of the offbeat comic talents of Renee Taylor during her semi-regular appearances in the years 1959 through 1962. In films, [[Performer~P165414~Taylor~taylor]] has usually been seen in such small but distinctive roles as whispering dress extra in [[Performer~P99633~Jerry Lewis~jerrylewis]]' [[Feature~V16005~The Errand Boy~theerrandboy]] and Eva Braun (yes, Eva Braun) in Mel Brooks' [[Feature~V39399~The Producers~theproducers]]. In 1965, she married actor/writer [[Performer~P7154~Joseph Bologna~josephbologna]], becoming his partner both professionally and in life. In 1969, Taylor and Bologna wrote and starred in the Broadway comedy [[Feature~V30381~Lovers and Other Strangers~loversandotherstrangers]]; the play was transferred to the screen in 1970, minus the authors' on-screen presence but with all their comic insights and witticisms intact. Taylor and Bologna went on to create the 1973 TV series [[Feature~V13268~Calucci's Department~departmentstore]], co-direct such films as 1989's [[Feature~V135305~It Had to Be You~ithadtobeyou]], and co-star in such projects as the 1976 TV-movie remake of [[Feature~V130014~Woman of the Year~womanoftheyear]]. In 1972, they shared an Emmy Award for their scriptwork on the 1972 television special [[Feature~V83367~Acts of Love-And Other Comedies~alexandthegypsy]]. On her own, Renee Taylor has been a TV-series regular on 1977's [[Feature~V31636~Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman~maryhartmanmaryhartman[tvseries]]] (as Annabelle) and 1993's Daddy Dearest (as Helen Mitchell, the mother of [[Performer~P99649~Richard Lewis~richardlewis]] and estranged wife of [[Performer~P60156~Don Rickles~donrickles]]). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
