Leigh French

Description   [from Freebase]

Leigh French (born July 14, 1945) is an American actress. In her early career as a regular on the Smothers Brothers variety show of the late-1960s, she portrayed a somewhat spaced-out or ditzy hippie named Goldie O'Keefe. (The character was originally introduced, in an ostensible studio-audience interview segment, as Goldie Keif; both "Goldie" and "Keif" were slang terms for marijuana at the time. Reportedly, the slight name change to O'Keefe when she became a semi-regular was at the television network's insistence.) Her segment of the show was called "Share a Little Tea with Goldie." At the time, "sharing tea" was a popular euphemism for getting high on marijuana. Following suit, her segment consisted largely of "helpful" household advice loaded with sex and drug-related double-entendres. She played a similar character, a San Francisco hippie type named Cobalt-Blue, in a 1968 episode ("Tag, You're It") of the I Spy series. She and Rob Reiner (both of whom had been members of The Committee improv group in Los Angeles) also played hippies in the 1969 "Flower Power" episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.
