A posthumous star honoring Bewitched actress Elizabeth Montgomery was unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a rainy Friday ceremony. Montgomery "is probably in the heavens laughing at us as we stand in the rain," said honorary Hollywood Mayor Johnny Grant. In the television show, Montgomery portrayed a witch trying to live as a housewife. The sitcom ran from 1964 into the early 1970s. She died in 1995 at age 62. Among those attending the ceremony was her widower, actor Robert Foxworth. "It is a great tribute to her that there are so many of you here," he said during the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard.
