Singer and comedian EDIE ADAMS, born Elizabeth Edith Enke (1927-2008), who appeared on TV's popular Ernie Kovacs Show in the early 1950s, was married to Kovacs from 1954 until his death in 1962. Known to television audiences for her commercials for Muriel Cigars, she also appeared in several feature films, including The Apartment (1960) and The Best Man (1964). Adams, who received a Tony Award as Daisy Mae in Li'l Abner (1955), portrayed Mae West in a TV biography of her late husband, Ernie Kovacs: Between the Laughter (1984). Comedian, actor, author, composer and producer ERNIE KOVACS (1919-1962, born Ernest Edward Kovacs in Trenton, New Jersey) pioneered the use of blackouts, trick photography and satire in television. The wise-cracking, cigar-smoking Kovacs starred in The Ernie Kovacs Show (1952-1953, 1955-1956) and The New Ernie Kovacs Show (1961-1962), and he made many guest appearances on other TV variety shows. Kovac's film credits include Bell, Book and Candle (1958), It Happened to Jane (1959), North to Alaska (1960) and Sail a Crooked Ship (1961). He was only 42 when he was killed in an automobile accident in 1962. Four items.
