Virginia Ruth Egnor 
      American comic actress (b. Nov. 29, 1921, Logan, W.Va.—d. Oct. 9, 2001, Ceredo, W.Va.), portrayed a stereotypical sexy dumb blonde in early 1950s television, most notably on the late-night talk show Broadway Open House, the prototype for The Tonight Show and similar programs. With a repertoire of silly poetry and mangled-language lectures—which she called treasises—she became an overnight sensation.
