Beatrice Arthur biography (bio):
Beatrice Arthur is billed as Bea Arthur, is a two-time Emmy Award-winning and Tony Award winning American comedian, actor and singer.
She is known for her distinctive deep voice, acid wit and prominent stature, standing almost 5 ft 10 in (1.77 m).
In an ongoing career spanning six decades (beginning in 1947) and encompassing film, television, and theater, Arthur's trademark roles were as the title character on the 1970s sitcom Maude, and as a part of the ensemble on the long-running sitcom The Golden Girls.
Arthur was born in New York City to parents Rebecca (1902-1986) and Philip Frankel. In the 1930s, the family moved to Maryland, where they owned a women's clothing shop. After attending the now-defunct Blackstone College in Blackstone, Virginia, Arthur became a medical technologist before World War II.
Arthur was married twice - first briefly to Robert Alan Arthur, an author, whose surname she kept. Her second marriage (1950-1978) was to director Gene Saks, with whom she adopted two sons, Matthew (b. 14 July 1961), an actor and Daniel (b. 8 May 1964), a set designer. The Saks' marriage ended in divorce in 1978.[2]
She primarily lives in the Greater Los Angeles Area and has sublet her apartment on Central Park West in New York City and her country home in Bedford, New York.


Theatre roles:
Arthur began her career as a member of the off Broadway theater group at The Cherry Lane Theatre in NY in the late 1940s. Actors Anthony Franciosa and Robert Herrell were also members at that time.
On stage, her roles included "Lucy Brown" in the 1954 Off-Broadway premiere of Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera, "Yente the Matchmaker" in the 1964 premiere of Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway, and a 1966 Tony Award-winning portrayal of "Vera Charles" to Angela Lansbury's Mame (she recreated the role in the unsuccessful film version opposite Lucille Ball in 1974). In 1981, she appeared in Woody Allen's The Floating Lightbulb.
Two decades later, she toured the U.S. with a one-woman show in which she made a triumphant return to Broadway. 2002's Bea Arthur on Broadway: Just Between Friends, a collection of stories and songs (with musician Billy Goldenberg) and based on her life and long career, was nominated for a Tony award for Best Special Theatrical Event, but lost to Elaine Stritch At Liberty.

Television roles:
Arthur is perhaps best known for two long-running roles she portrayed on television; the title role on the popular sitcom Maude in the 1970s, and a starring role on The Golden Girls in the 1980s and 1990s.
In Maude, she played Maude Findlay, an outspoken liberal living in the affluent community of Tuckahoe, Westchester County, New York, with her husband, Walter (Bill Macy) and divorced daughter Carol (Adrienne Barbeau).
The show was a spinoff from All in the Family, on which Arthur had appeared a couple of times in the same role, playing Edith Bunker (Jean Stapleton)'s cousin, a feminist, and antithesis to the bigoted, conservative Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor, who described Maude as a "New Deal fanatic").
In The Golden Girls, she played Dorothy Zbornak, a divorce and substitute teacher who lived in a Miami, Florida, house owned by Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan). Her other roommates included widow Rose Nylund (Betty White) and Dorothy's Sicilian mother, Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty). (Getty is actually a year younger than Arthur in real life, and was heavily made up to look significantly older.) Dorothy had an acidic sense of humor and was prone to making witty, biting wisecracks, often directed at the man-hungry Blanche or dimwitted Rose.
She made a guest appearance on American cartoon Futurama, in the Emmy-nominated episode Amazon Women in the Mood as the voice of the Femputer who ruled the giant Amazonian women.
She appeared in an episode of Malcolm in the Middle as Dewey's unfortunate babysitter. She was nominated for a guest-star Emmy for her performance. She also showed up unexpectedly as Larry (Larry David)'s mother on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

In popular culture:
* Arthur was seen throughout the 1980s in Canada as a regular character in Shoppers Drug Mart television commercials for a popular Canadian chain of pharmacies.
* In the movie Airheads (1994) with Brendan Fraser, Steve Buscemi and Adam Sandler the main characters ask for naked pictures of Bea Arthur as part of an elaborate ploy to build an insanity defense.
* Arthur is referenced in the song California by singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright on his 2001 album, Poses, with the lyric, "I don't know this sea of neon / Thousand surfers, whiffs of freon / And my new grandma Bea Arthur".
* In the Clerks: The Animated Series episode The Last Episode Ever, Randal Graves admits to stalking the Golden Girls, including "exposing myself to Bea Arthur".
* In the Family Guy episode Ready, Willing and Disabled Bea Arthur is said to be playing the role of Peter Griffin in Rolling Courage: The Joe Swanson story.
* During "on-stage" banter following the theme song on the Family Guy: Live in Vegas CD, Peter states that the sound stage on which Family Guy is shot (an in-joke that the characters on the show are actually real people who portray themselves on the show) is the same as the one used for the Golden Girls, and that one night, when everyone was prepared to begin filming, Bea Arthur was nowhere to be found. The producer of the Golden Girls supposedly ran in and told everyone to cancel the shoot because Bea Arthur was in jail for exposing her penis to traffic after drinking too much. Brian then asks, "How can Bea Arthur have a penis?", to which Peter responds "Uhh ... a special permit?". This is not the first reference to Arthur's having a penis - at the 2005 Friars Club Roast for Pamela Anderson comedian Jeffrey Ross made a similar reference.
