Edie Adams

  1. Dorothy Provine,  It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, 1962.    Producer-director Stanley Kramer’s movie was stuffed full with stars – mainly comics. Not all agreed to join  the party, being terrified at the prospect of working with the great Spencer Tracy.   Edie and hubby Ernie Kovacs were booked for Monica and Melville Crump. Then, Ernie was killed in a car smash. Kramer asked Edie to stay aboard as Emeline Marcus-Finch – she did so to help pay hubby’s debts.  Which she did.
