Betsy Palmer (1926-2015)

Over the weekend, Hollywood mourned the passing of actress Betsy Palmer at 88. Most media accounts lead with Betsy's most famous film role, in the original "Friday the 13th", as she was the villain of the piece, who eventually set the stage for the slasher movie series' iconic villain, Jason, to debut in the sequel.

However, Betsy Palmer had a long and distinguished career in films and television long before "Friday the 13th", including a lengthy run as a panelist on I've Got a Secret. Betsy would later appear on Knots Landing, Candid Camera, and other shows.

Here is one instance where Betsy left the panel desk on Secret and sat in with the Bourbon Street Six for a round of "Muskrat Ramble":

Rest in peace.
