Alice Drummond

Light-haired, quizzical American character actress in eccentric roles - she was the librarian at the beginning of Ghost Busters (1984). On stage from the early 1950s, she made a late entry to films in the 25-minute oddity The Dog Lover (1962). Born Alice Ruyter, her first feature was a fleeting appearance in Where's Poppa? (1970), but it wasn't until she reached middle age that her film career in cameo roles really got going: Thieves (1976), King of the Gypsies (1978), Hide in Plain Sight (1980), Eyewitness/The Janitor (1981), The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982), The House on Carroll Street (1988), Awakenings (1990), Money for Nothing (1992), Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar (1995), 'Til There Was You (1997), In & Out (1997), The Love Letter (1999), The Rising Place (2001), Pieces of April (2003), The Honeymooners (2005), Doubt (2008) and Furry Vengeance (2010), her last. She died following a fall.
