Elizabeth Wilson, a Tony-winning character actor on stage, in films, and on TV from the 1950s through the early 2000s, has died at 94. Wilson, a favorite of director Mike Nichols in the '60s and '70s, is most famous as the nosy executive assistant from the 1980 hit film "Nine to Five," in which she appeared with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton.

Wilson also appeared in the Alfred Hitchcock classic "The Birds" (1962), and played Dustin Hoffman's clueless mother in "The Graduate" (1967), named by the American Film Institute as one of the 20 best films of all time. She played the cousin of Edith Bunker (the late Jean Stapleton) on the '70s TV milestone "All in the Family."
