B. Elliott
C. Michael
D. Mary

Last Question: In the television show, Cagney & Lacey, who played the role of Cagney?

A. Loretta Swit
B. Tyne Daly
C. Sharon Gless
D. Joanna Kern
Answer: Both A and C. My bad. I meant to ask who played Cagney in the television pilot/movie, but I messed that up. Loretta Swit played Cagney in the tv pilot movie, then was replaced by Meg Foster. Audience approval was low and the show was pulled until fans banded together to demand its return. Sharon Gless took over as Cagney and played her until the series finale.
