LOS ANGELES (AP) — Yvonne De Carlo, the beautiful star who played Moses' wife in The Ten Commandments but achieved her greatest popularity on TV's slapstick comedy The Munsters, has died. She was 84.

De Carlo died of natural causes Monday at the Motion Picture & Television facility in suburban Los Angeles, longtime friend and television producer Kevin Burns said Wednesday.

De Carlo, whose shapely figure helped launch her career in B-movie desert adventures and Westerns, rose to more important roles in the 1950s. Later, she had a key role in a landmark Broadway musical, Stephen Sondheim's Follies.

But for TV viewers, she will always be known as Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 horror-movie spoof The Munsters. The series (the name allegedly derived from fun-monsters ) offered a gallery of Universal Pictures grotesques, including Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, in a cobwebbed gothic setting.

Yeah, Morticia has been gone for some time. That's probably who you were thinking of.

I loved Lily Munster!! Yvonne de Carlo was also in one of my favorite John Wayne movies, McLintock!

I always thought she embodied grace and style in any role she played.

She will be missed. :cry:
