Agnes Moorehead made the transition from radio to cinema as the titular character’s mother in Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane,” establishing the cruel nature of many of the characters she would subsequently play.

She was naturally a comedian, however, and it wasn’t until being cast in the role of Glendora on “Bewitched” that she was able to return to her roots. She died of lung cancer in 1974.
