Old Movie Teams

Weren’t they also in that other movie?

Carole Shelley & Monica Evans

Monica Evans is the only person to appear in The Odd Couple the play, the movie, and the TV series (1970-75), each time playing the same character, Cecily Pigeon. Carole Shelley not only teamed with Ms. Evans in the Odd Couple movie, playing her sister Gwendolyn, but also as that same character in the TV series. The two actress also lend their talented voices and characterizations to two Disney animations: Aristocats (1970) and Robin Hood (1973). Ms. Evans plays Maid Marian in Robin Hood; her lady attendant, Lady Kluk, is played by Ms. Shelley. In Aristocats they are the two prim and proper English geese Amelia (Carole Shelley) and Abigail (Monica Evans).
