Petite, dark-haired Sue Randall only ever made two appearances on the big screen, in a supporting role in Walter Lang's battle-of-the-sexes comedy Desk Set (1957), portraying a member of Katharine Hepburn's research staff, and co-starring in O'Dale Ireland's exploitation thriller Date Bait (1960), made for Roger Corman's low-budget Filmgroup company. Millions of baby-boomer television viewers, however, will always remember Randall fondly for her portrayal of Miss Alice Landers, Beaver Cleaver's favorite teacher on Leave It to Beaver; from 1958 through 1962, the object of a crush on the part of the series' young hero as well as his eternal admiration, Miss Landers was virtually a fixture in American popular culture for five years. Randall also had a starring role in the 1955 series Valiant Lady and appeared on series such as Sea Hunt, Perry Mason, The Fugitive, 77 Sunset Strip, The F.B.I., Gunsmoke, Wendy and Me, and I Spy, before retiring in 1965. She was one of the few surviving major supporting cast members who did not participate in Still the Beaver (1983), the revival of the series. Randall died of cancer in 1984 at the age of 49.
