Kathryn Grayson (born February 9, 1922) is an American actress and singer who was born Zelma Kathryn Hedrick. Into the 1970s and 1980s Hawn remained a popular figure in entertainment, appearing in various films (generally comedies.) She gathered great respect as a comedic actress, outspoken on her liberal political views. Hawn won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the 1969 film Cactus Flower. She embodied both the concept of the free-loving hippie girl and the determined feminist. Noted equally for her chipper attitude and her bikini and painted body, she personified a 60s "it-girl." On the show she would often break out into high-pitched giggles in the middle of a joke, yet in the next moment deliver a very polished performance.
