NEW YORK, June 23 (UPI) -- Stage, film and television actress Dody Goodman has died at the Actors Fund Home in New Jersey, a representative for the fund has confirmed.
Playbill.com said Goodman was believed to have been 92 when she died Sunday.
Her stage credits as Dolores Goodman included performances in the Broadway musicals "Viva O'Brien," "Something for the Boys," "One Touch of Venus," "Laffing Room Only" and "Miss Liberty."
She later went by the name Dody Goodman and starred in Broadway shows like "Call Me Madam," "Wonderful Town," "My Darlin' Aida," as well as the Off Broadway productions of "Shoestring Revue" and "Parade," Playbill.com said.
Goodman was a regular player on "The Tonight Show" when Jack Paar was host and earned an Emmy Award nomination in 1957 for Best Continued Performance in a Series by a Comedienne.
Although her gift for upstaging Paar reportedly led to her departure from the series, Playbill.com said she frequently appeared on the shows like "Toast of the Town," "The Phil Silvers Show" and "The Merv Griffin Show" in the 1960s and 1970s.
She also had supporting roles in the TV shows "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and "Diff'rent Strokes," as well as in the movie musical "Grease."
Goodman also appeared in numerous productions of the musical "Nunsense" and its sequels, the theater industry trade magazine said.
