Mary Grace Canfield
Mary Grace Canfield, born on
September 23, 1924, in Rochester, New York, was a stage, film, and television
actress, but she became famous for playing the role of all-thumbs
carpenter Ralph Monroe on the CBS series Green Acres. She played
that role in forty episodes between 1965 and 1971 and reprised it in the 1990
movie Return to Green Acres. But her fame for that role was only
one side of the medal, and during an interview in 2002, she admitted to be
upset at being remembered for only one role.
Mostly active on small theater
stages during her early years, she appeared in several Broadway plays between
1952 and 1964. Her first television performance was in a 1954 episode of Goodyear
Playhouse. Her other credits included NBC's The Eleventh Hour
(1963), Bewitched (1966), Adam-12 (1970), and Alice
Canfield was married twice. She died
on February 15, 2014, in Santa Barbara, California, bringing eight points each to
two players: Where's My Damn List? and B&T's Characters.
