Q I've always enjoyed actress Anne Archer. I read that her mother also was an actress. Who was she?
—Loretto Greafen, Elburn, Ill.
Archer, who currently has a recurring role on TV's Ghost Whisperer as the mom of Jennifer Love Hewitt's character, is the daughter of Marjorie Lord, who played Danny Thomas' wife on the television series Make Room for Daddy from 1957 to 1965. Her father is John Archer, the announcer who memorably voiced the tagline, "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" Archer, 60, is married to TV producer Terry Jastrow and has two grown sons.
