R.I.P. Dody Goodman

Dody Goodman (1915-2008) was known for many awesome comedic roles... many included her portraying secretaries in films and their sequels:
  • “Blanche” (the principal’s secretary) in Grease and Grease 2
  • Tom Hanks’ absent-minded secretary in Splash and Splash, Too

She also delighted us in roles in Silent Movie, Max Dugan Returns, Private Resort, Cool as Ice, Frozen Assets and Bedtime Story, and a recurring role in the Alvin and the Chipmunk cartoons, including the 1987 feature, The Chipmunk Adventure (as Miss Miller, adopted mother of the Chipettes).

She also performed with our good friend Shavar Ross on the classic sitcom Diff’rent Strokes.

She died June 22nd in Englewood, New Jersey. She will be missed.

Have been reading your sites. Thank you for your information. We don't get the kind of news over here in Asia but we watch all kinds of good shows produced by wonderful people in your region. I grew up knowing Chipmunks from television but will never who's who unless sites like yours tell us.
