    In 1960, Carl Reiner created Head Of The House, a sitcom about a television comedy writer. In the pilot episode, the character of Sally Rogers was played by Sylvia Miles. After the networks showed no interest in the pilot, all the roles were recast and The Dick Van Dyke Show was born, with Sally Rogers played by Rose Marie. Ah, what might have been......but Miles did have roles in more than 40 movies and tv episodes including NYPD, Naked City, Route 66 and All My Children.

    Sylvia Miles, Oscar-nominated actress in Midnight Cowboy and Farewell My Lovely, dies at 94
