The peak popularity of American actress Leigh French came and went with the Psychedelic '60s. French rose to prominence in the "Share a Little Tea with Goldie" segment on the 1967-68 season of TV's The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. As Goldie, a laid-back hippie type, French delivered a weekly monologue laced with references to sex and drugs and drugs and drugs. While this routine got loud and knowing laughter in the '60s, it's a bit on the politically incorrect side nowadays, thus many of French's sequences were carefully pruned when the E! cable channel reran Smothers Brothers in 1993. Nonetheless, French, looking none the worse for the passing years, gracefully appeared on E! to recall her participation on the series. As for her post-Smothers Brothers performing career, Leigh French could be seen in funny-funky roles in such films as WUSA (1970), Norwood (1970), The Drowning Pool (1975) and Hollywood Knights (1980); she was also a TV regular on the 1975 edition of The Dick Cavett Show.
