    Agnes, yes, I heard that rumor. Although she was married twice and
    had an adopted child, rumors were flying for quite a while.
    Dick Sargent, the second Darren, was known to be gay.

    Never heard that one. She was married once, from 1934-1944 and never remarried, though.....

    Robert Reed had been married and had a daughter, but that was just
    a union like the one made up for Rock Hudson and ended after 2 years.
    He pretty much lived, like Rock, a hidden gay life from then on, but
    did keep in contact with his ex and daughter.

    Never knew rumors about those 3.
    Suspected Mr. Mooney a bit, but that's because he kinda played
    the character that way. Did read often he was a very, very nice
    man in person.

    I had figured most of these were..the big exception being Earl Holliman. No clue about that. He was in movies and such too before Police Woman(loved. A. D. in that)

    I knew that Robert Reed was gay, and I'd heard rumours about Agnes Moorehead and Paul Lynde. I'm not sure about the others though!

    I loved Policewoman and especially Earl Holliman.

    Agnes Moorehead was rumored to be gay--but she was straight by most accounts.

    A lot of the Bewitched cast was definitely gay: Paul Lynde was gay, Maurice Evans and Bernard Fox.

    Richard Deacon was also gay.

    Mary Wickes was gay. I LOVE Mary Wickes. She cracked me up.

    I had heard about Ellen Corby, but forgot about it until I read it here.

    I'll add Raymond Burr, from Perry Mason

    Dick York wasn't gay. Dick Sargent was.

    DY was the best Darrin. He was really funny.

    OH! Yes, Raymond Burr. And wasn't Rosemarie, from the Dick van Dyke show?

    As far as I know, Rose Marie was married and he died when they started the DVDyke Show.
