    LOS ANGELES - Connie Hines, an actress on the 1960s television show “Mr. Ed,’’ died Friday at her home in Beverly Hills. A native of Dedham, Mass., she was 78.

    She portrayed Carol Post, whose husband, Wilbur, was the only person who could converse with Mr. Ed, the eponymous talking horse.

    Ms. Hines died of complications of heart problems, said Alan Young, her “Mr. Ed’’ costar.

    “I lost a great friend; she was always joyous,’’ Young said.

    Connie Hines, rivaled ‘Mr. Ed’ for Wilbur’s attention; at 78 - The Boston Globe

    America is amazing. This woman was on one TV show where a horse talked and get a national obit.
    A person who has worked with disadvantaged children all of her life dies and no one knows.

    Evidently a little more was going on behind the set than we were led to believe.

    This from photo archives of a circus sideshow located outside Bulgaria. Circa 1964.

    Mr Ed's cousin Francis the talking mule is currently deployed and could not be reached for comment regarding this sad loss.
