Butch Patrick, Yvonne De Carlo, Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis, and Pat Priest
Happy birthday to the beautiful Pat Priest – best known as the lovable Marilyn on The Munsters. But, unless they’ve seen the first 15 episodes of the series, a lot of people don’t realize she was actually the second actress to play Marilyn.
Beverley Owen was the first Marilyn (for the 1st 15 episodes).
In addition to portraying Marilyn to the hilt, Pat Priest also made a lot of guest-appearances on television including Perry Mason, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Mannix, and Bewitched.
You can watch The Munsters on Prime Video or buy the complete series on dvd (Amazon link). After shopping for several other favorites on dvd, I was joyfully surprised by how inexpensive The Munsters is! It would make a really fun gift idea for anyone who loves classic television.
