  1. This is fabulous! I don’t think I’ve ever seen an episode of The Addams Family, but your enthusiasm has utterly convinced me Carolyn Jones is the perfect Morticia. She sounds like a fascinating character, but more than that, it sounds like she inspired youth do some amazing things, such as learning French.

    I’ll see if there are any episodes on YouTube.

    Thanks for joining the blogathon and bringing Morticia Addams to the party!

  2. Yep. She’d be my pick crush (or would it be more of a piercing injury I’d suffer?) as well, but I saw Barbara Steele in something first and Ms. Jones as M. afterwards. I should feel sorry for my younger self for that conflict, but I most certainly don’t.

  4. I haven’t seen her as Morticia either, but I do love her face! And think I might need to now, after your fantastic post.

    Have you ever seen Shield for Murder? She has a very tiny part in that, but she’s so good and I guess, campy, but it works wonderfully. I’d actually like to see her in more things.


  5. Carolyn Jones was excellent in this role. Definitely crush-worthy! She and John Astin played one of the most well-adjusted, romantic couples in the history of television and film. Thanks so much for participating in the blogathon!

  6. Carolyn Jones born in 1933 in Amarillo Texas came to Hollywood in the early 1950’s best known for her roles in Invasion Of The Body Snatchers 1956 and Marjorie Morningstar 1959 was first married Aaron Spelling and remained friends after their divorce. In my opinion Carolyn Jones was the BEST Morticia Addams hands down. Too bad Miss Jones died from cancer in 1983.
