American character actress Dorothy Neumann was long a stage performer before making her film bow in 1948's Sorry, Wrong Number. She spent the next two decades in small roles, usually playing clerks, domestics, ladies' club chairpersons and grandmothers. One of Ms. Neumann's best remembered assignments was her uncredited role in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), as the suspicious housekeeper of Einstein-like scientist Sam Jaffe, who is confronted in Jaffe's den by benevolent space alien Michael Rennie. Frequently on television, Dorothy Neumann was seen in the regular role of Miss Mittelman on the now-forgotten 1965 sitcom Hank.

QUOTES FROM Dorothy Neumann CHARACTERS

Livia says: Tis a wager then my twisted copy of a wizardess. Try every trick you know, I will vanquish thee and I will do it in my sleep.

Meg-Maud says: Sleep not while I'm awake. Thine sleep is coming, in the sulfurous pit!
