Kitty Carlisle Hart, the supremely elegant actress, singer, arts advocate and TV personality who enjoyed one of the longest and most varied career runs in U.S. arts history, died Tuesday in New York at age 96. She had been ailing since a bout with pneumonia in December, according to her son, Christopher Hart.

Her long run as a panelist on the CBS game show "To Tell the Truth" made her a regular presence in the country's living rooms from the 1950s through the 1970s.

Ibelieve she was also on What's My Line.

It's my opinion that very few on this board will know who this woman is. I'm not so sure knowing of her is a good thing. :)

Don't know who Kitty Carlisle is?!
How depressing! I guess I'll just put on one of my George Gobel records and contemplate.

"What's My Line?" was one of my favs when I was an teeny weeny little kid. Kitty was on it for the full run.

Too bad it's all being lost.

All the hyped-up talk show hosts now could take a lesson from Arthur Godfrey and his ukulele, not to mention Don Ho and his "Tiny Bubbles".

Oops...there I go showing my age again!

I watched "To Tell the Truth" every day growing up. She had quite a gig on that game show 1956 - 1977...She was also known for being in the Marx Bros. film "A Night at the Opera". She also headed the New York State Council on the Arts - a huge title, due to the volume of entertainment in NYC and Statewide.

RIP Kitty Carlisle Hart
