Edie Adams, whose career spanned Broadway, TV, and the movies, has died at the age of 81. She was married to Ernie Kovacs, and was supposed to appear with him in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World until he died in a car accident.

Amongst the other movies Adams appeared in is Billy Wilder's great comedy The Apartment, in which she played the secretary of Fred MacMurray; that's Adams on the right alongside Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. Adams also played wife to Cliff Robertson in Gore Vidal's political convention drama The Best Man.
