Connie Hines, aka Carol Post and Mrs. Wilbur Post, died last Friday at her home in Beverly Hills. Ms. Hines was 79. For those who don't recall, Connie Hines co-starred with Alan Young in the Studebaker sponsored TV show Mister Ed in the early 1960's.

does anyone remember her being in anything other than Mr. Ed ?

Jack, I couldn't, so I looked her up. She worked on TV a lot, but all one or two episodes in series. In retirement, she did cable presentations on animal rescue (which I haven't seen). That's an odd parallel with Tippi Hedren, who drove an Aston, not a Stude, and I don't know how she cleaned all that bird soil off of it. So Connie had a great role--she didn't have to shovel!

Thanks for sharing Ed.
Connie helped Studebaker look more attractive.

I remember Mr Ed & its sponsor, Studebaker as a young teen & how beautiful Connie was in the show. How sad it was as I was just getting some newspaper to light a fire tonight, that I saw her obituary, like another part of my early life has now past. Her smile will always be remembered. Among other parts she had was a role on a Perry Mason episode #150 as "Sarah".

I saw this report the other day and was intrigued by the reference to her part in "Carolina Thunder" a 1960 stock car movie. Has anyone seen that movie. I had never heard of it.

Ms. Hines was indeed a good looking lady.
