Good news turned sad.
I was elated to get an email from the LA Times who contacted me to do an interview about Annette Funicello and the beach party movies. However, I felt sad when I learned that it is for a future tribute article on Annette as word is her health has deteriorated a lot. Here’s hoping that she somehow recovers.
Pamela Tiffin seems to be the It Girl these days. Forgot to write yesterday that there is a Pamela – Laurel Goodwin connection. Pamela turned down the lead opposite Elvis in Girls! Girls! Girls! (after Dolores Hart passed) and Goodwin got the part.
To you wanting me to recommend Pamela Tiffin movies my choices are Billy Wilder’s One, Two, Three (1961) for Pamela at her comedic best in her Golden Globe nominated role as a ditzy Southern gal who marries a Communist; The Pleasure Seekers (1964) for Pamela at her virginal best as the naive tourist in Madrid who exclaims to Carol Lynley, “I know everything about Spain except Spanish”; and Harper (1966) for Pamela at her sexiest as the sex-starved heiress who tries unsuccessfully to seduce gumshoe Paul Newman. What was that straight boy thinking!?!
Check out my web site for more on Pamela and also the blog www.marquisescorner.blogspot.com for a tribute on this underrated starlet of the 60s.
