then and now: THE ADDAMS FAMILY (1991)

It's been an awfully long time since I've gotten around to a "Then and Now" column (that E.T. post was AGES ago!), but I'd like to present to you a little retrospective on the cast of the far too underrated film adaptation of the classic TV series, The Addams Family. It's terribly funny and a perfectly kooky dark comedy. From Pugsley and Wednesday to Gomez and Morticia (isn't this one of Anjelica Huston's best characters?), the movie is a gem. Here are the cast members - back in the day and more recently. (And since we've recently covered both Christopher Lloyd's "Then and Now" and Dana Ivey's entire career, they're absent here.)

Anjelica Huston as Morticia Addams
From an issue of Vogue in 1972
And in the 2010 movie When in Rome

Raul Julia as Gomez Addams
In a 1971 production of Two Gentlemen of Verona
And in the 1994 movie Street Fighter

Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams
In the 1990 movie Mermaids
And in a 2009 episode of the TV series Saving Grace

Jimmy Workman as Pugsley Addams
In the 1991 movie The Addams Family
And in a recent photo

Elizabeth Wilson as "Dr. Pinder Schloss"
In the 1967 film The Graduate
And in a 2002 episode of the TV series Law and Order: Criminal Intent
