Although Alice had many roles on television and film, she never was cast in a starring position.  She is most remembered today for her television roles as "Alice" on ''Mayberry, R.F.D.'', as "Esmerelda" on ''Bewitched'' and as "Bernice Clifton" on ''Designing Women''.  Alice had a small role as one of the wedding guests in 1967's film ''The Graduate''.  In one scene she stands with fellow-actress [[Marion Lorne]] who she would later replace on the TV-series ''Bewitched'', after Marion's death.  Some have seen that as a bit...ghostley.
