was an effervescent entertainer who performed onstage and in films but was best remembered as a guest panelist on the TV game shows What's My Line? and To Tell the Truth. She was celebrated for her singing role in the Marx Brothers film comedy A Night at the Opera (1935) and had two other notable operatic performances (on Broadway in Benjamin Britten's The Rape of Lucretia [1948] and in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the title role in Carmen) before making her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 1967 in Die Fledermaus. Her onstage career featured roles in such productions as White Horse Inn (1936), Three Waltzes (1937), and On Your Toes (1984). Carlisle, who was married to playwright Moss Hart, became after his death in 1961 a tireless promoter of the arts, and in 1991 she was awarded the National Medal of Arts. She appeared in Woody Allen's film Radio Days (1987) and in Six Degrees of Separation (1993) and continued to perform into her 90s, touring in a one-woman show, Here's to Life.
