Profile Bio Text
Amanda Blake (born Beverly Louise Neill, February 20, 1929 – August 16, 1989) was an American actress best known for the role of the red-haired saloon proprietress "Miss Kitty Russell" on the television western Gunsmoke. She and her husband Frank Gilbert also ran one of the first successful programs for breeding cheetahs in captivity. Early life and career Amanda Blake was born in Buffalo, New York, the only child of Jesse and Louise (née Puckett) Neill. Her father was a banker, and she was a telephone operator before taking up acting. Catherine ″Kate" Moore Barry (1752-1823), one of her ancestors, was a heroine of the American Revolutionary War. She warned local patriots of Banastre Tarleton's approach, giving them time to group and prepare for the Battle of Cowpens (January 17, 1781), a major American victory which helped pave the way for the British defeat at Yorktown. Blake placed a cameo-sized portrait of Barry owned by her family in the Spartanburg, SC local history museum, where it remains on display to this day. Nicknamed "the Young Greer Garson," she became best known for her 19-year stint as the saloon-keeper Miss Kitty on the television series Gunsmoke from 1955 until 1974. In 1968, Blake was inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. She was the third performer inducted, after Tom Mix and Gary Cooper, who were selected in 1958 and 1966 respectively. Because of her continuing role on television, Blake rarely had time for films. She appeared in a TV comedy routine with Red Skelton and was a panelist on the long-running Hollywood Squares and Match Game 74. In 1957, she guest-starred as Betty Lavon-Coate in the episode of "Coate of Many Colors" on Rod Cameron's syndicated series western-themed crime drama, State Trooper. After the Gunsmoke reunion film, she made two film appearance in 1988's The Boost, a drug-addiction drama starring James Woods and Sean Young and B.O.R.N, also in 1988. Blake was scheduled for an appearance in a second reunion film but was too ill to accept the role.

Where oh where can I find out how to turn one of these pictures into a poster? I am a teacher, and the kids call me Miss Kitty. I giggle every time I hear that, and would LOVE a poster of the woman herself on my wall!
