Barbara Feldon, who was born in Pittsburgh, is best known for her delightfully droll portrayal of Agent 99 on the popular NBC spy sitcom Get Smart (1965–70, created by Mel Brooks, Buck Henry, and Leonard Stern). She has also appeared on Profiles in Courage, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Cheers, Laugh-In, and the shows of Carol Burnett, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, and Marty Feldman. Probably the most memorable of her film roles is the beauty pageant coordinator Brenda DiCarlo in Michael Ritchie’s 1975 satire Smile, described by Vincent Canby in his New York Times review as “a pretty, silly, edgy woman beautifully played by Barbara Feldon.” From 1982 to 1984 she hosted Lifetime network’s The Eighties Woman and has delivered numerous keynote addresses throughout the United States on behalf of women and girls. Her book, Living Alone and Loving It, was published in 2002.
