Polly Bergen (1930-2014) was an actress and singer with an illustrious career in the movies, including three classic comedies with Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, but even more so on television.  In fact, her career spans the very history of the small screen medium, starting with appearances on pioneering broadcasts of the late 1940s right up to a memorable regular role in the hit series “Desperate Housewives.” She was probably best known for starring in the legendary 1957 “Playhouse 90” live television biography of Helen Morgan. In other guises, she was an entrepreneur and a committed Democrat.
