Question: Who is the woman who played Christie Love, a detective on a '70s TV show? I have a bet with my wife that she is the same woman who played Cleopatra Jones in the '70s. Please make me a winner. Darren D., Atlanta, Ga.
Televisionary: Can't do that, Darren. The late Teresa Graves, who in 2002 died at 54 from injuries suffered from a fire in her L.A. home, played Det. Christie Love on the ABC show, which ran from September 1974 to July 1975. Tamara Dobson played Cleopatra Jones in both Cleopatra Jones and Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold.
