SUDDEN TRAGEDY

African-American actress Teresa Graves — who starred in ABC's funky policewoman drama Get Christie Love from 1974-75 — is dead at 54. Firefighters rescued her from a blaze in her L.A. home, but she passed away at a hospital soon after. Back in the '70s, Graves also starred on Laugh-In and did blaxploitation films like That Man Bolt and Vampira before quitting acting to focus on religion.
