In it's third season in 1970, Alice became cousin "Alice" on the TV-series ''Mayberry, R.F.D.'' starring Andy Griffith for one year.  Alice and Felice in 1970 moved into their first house in the Hollywood Hills, previously having rented, mostly living in apartments in New York City's Greenwich Village neighborhood.  In 1971 she appeared with Patty Duke in the movie ''Two on a Bench'', you can watch an excerpt [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHCGy0cgN-c here], as the kleptomaniac mother.  Very funny.

In it's third season in 1970, Alice became cousin "Alice" on the TV-series ''Mayberry, R.F.D.'' starring Andy Griffith, after the "Aunt Bea" character was written out of the script.  She played in this role for one year.  Alice and Felice in 1970 moved into their first house in the Hollywood Hills, previously having rented, mostly living in apartments in New York City's Greenwich Village neighborhood.  In 1971 she appeared with Patty Duke in the movie ''Two on a Bench'', you can watch an excerpt [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHCGy0cgN-c here], as the kleptomaniac mother.  Very funny.
  
 
In 1973 she again teamed up with Julie Andrews, playing her roommate and  foil, in the ABC "The Julie Andrews Hour".  Watch it [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUIiDRHem7Q here] on YouTube. (Note: Alice appears only for the few few minutes, the rest is Julie dancing and singing.)  Alice appeared in 1976's film ''Gator'' starring Bert Reynolds.  She appeared in an episode of the TV-series ''Good Times'' (with J.J. Walker), playing an adoption agent.  You can watch her in this role [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3qOftMBXFw here], she begins speaking at time 7:50.  It's just a '''tiny''' bit saccharin so you've been warned!
