The woman who played Large Marge, Alice Nunn, had a long career as a character actor. Starting in the late 1960s, she appeared in many TV shows and movies including Hazel, The Phyllis Diller Show, Petticoat Junction, The Love Boat, Mommie DearestHappy Days, Knight Rider, and LOTS MORE! She’s best known for playing Large Marge in my 1985 film, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure Ms. Nunn died in 1988 in West Hollywood, California.
