Gertrude Edelstein Berg (October 3, 1894-September 14, 1966) was a star of old-time radio and television. She is most famous for starring as Jewish housewife Molly Goldberg in The Rise of the Goldbergs, better known simply as The Goldbergs, on radio (1929-1934; 1938-1945), Broadway (Me and Molly, 1948) and television (1949-1951; 1952-54). When the show first moved to TV, Berg's co-star, Philip Loeb, was blacklisted as an alleged Communist. She stood by him, refusing to fire him from the program. Loeb quit in an attempt to save the show and later committed suicide. "The Goldbergs" went off the air anyway, but returned the next year.
