Thanks Linda, for confirming what Chad and I had suspected. Those supermarket rag-ma-tags are not reliable sources of information. They love to inflate things in order to sell more papers through sensationalism! In the Lana Turner bio recently aired, Sandra is wearing a scarf and has a raspy sort of voice. That piece was done in 1995!!! Or didn't anyone notice? She had a sore throat that day six years ago! Big deal! I had quadruple bypass surgery in '96 and I'm still here. Sandra has had more than her share of health problems. Let's not add to them if they aren't true. Let's all be cool!

I just read, like everyone, that she's facing cancer on top of all her other problems. It completely breaks my heart that she's gotten to this state, and I wish she could find a way to conquer some of her demons. It appears she's lost the will to try. I wish she could know how important she is, how beautiful she is, and how much she means to those of us who care more than she does whether or not she lives. God bless you Alexandra - how I wish I could help you.

I just read, like everyone, that she's facing cancer on top of all her other problems. It completely breaks my heart that she's gotten to this state, and I wish she could find a way to conquer some of her demons. It appears she's lost the will to try. I wish she could know how important she is, how beautiful she is, and how much she means to those of us who care more than she does whether or not she lives. God bless you Alexandra - how I wish I could help you.

WHERE did you read this?? I don't like to rely on rumors. Larynx cancer is NOT a death sentence if caught early (if that is indeed the location). In fact it has one of the highest cure rates! So even if this is true, it is not time to write Sandra Dee off yet. From her heavy smoking I have always been much more afraid of lung cancer for her. So let's keep the good thought for Sandy! Please let me know where you read this. Lana

I agree with Lana 150%. As her fans, it is up to us to keep up the best of faith. You can't always believe everything you read, especially in the Tabloids. We should all just keep our cool and not jump to conclusions until we find out something a little more firm. The truth will come out in time, but we must all be patient. Regards, Chad.

Chad and Lana are on target! As your unofficial Sandradeologist in Residence, I say we should keep our cool and wait to see if there is any truth in this, from a reliable source. And I DON'T mean supermarket tabloids! While they often do reflect a reality of sorts, they are inclined to inflate the facts with sensationalism in order to sell more papers. 'Caveat emptor' (Let the buyer beware) Where did the original reader see this information? That's for openers. Sandy does not need any more health problems than she already has, and who is saying that she has lost the will to fight? I find her to be a feisty little lady, and with a little help from all of her friends out there, she WILL make it, if she in fact has acquired another ailment. Keep the faith, folks!

I just got an email from a friend of mine, asking if I had heard the news. She said that she just heard that Sandra was dying of laryx cancer. Has anyone else heard this? God, I sure hope it is a rumor. I do remember she was a heavy smoker since she was a teenager. I don't know if she smoked in her adult years. Her Mom died of lung cancer. If this is true, it is so so sad.

Happy Birthday, Sandra, from a long-time devoted fan who owes you a debt of gratitude. For in the Summer of '60, a psychic lady in Paris described a young lady she had just seen in a US movie as her vision of my intended, whom I would meet, within a year, 2 oceans and 3 continents away. 12 months and 9000 miles later, I married 'everything I had dreamed of in a girl', 'before God and everybody,' of course, and at the movies, a few weeks later, discovered she had a twin in Hollywood! (Tammy Tell Me True)The lady had been right! I am beholden to you, Sandy, for having been seen in the right film (A Summer Place), in the right place (Paris), at the right time (Aug.'60), by the right person (That Lady in Paris who read me my fortune!)I have been ever blessed by this wonderful girl, our three daughters (one died at 3, open-heart surgery) and our six grandkids, one 'fully-growed'. A true-blue, one-guy gal, just as you have proven to be. Because of all of this, you were a major influence on my life...you made a difference! Accept our best wishes for the happiest of birthdays, the knowledge that you still have many friends and admirers who respect your work, love you as a person, understand the problems you have had, and wish you the VERY BEST on this your '50-something' birthday, surrounded by your family. Warmest regards Mike Valeur in Virginia N.A. N.A. N.A.

I have previously posted a listing of SD films available on comercial video, but see that that was so long ago, I'll post it again, updated. UNTIL THEY SAIL ('57) THE RELUCTANT DEBUTANTE ('58) GIDGET ('59) A SUMMER PLACE ('59) IMITATION OF LIFE ('59) PORTRAIT IN BLACK ('60) TAMMY AND THE DOCTOR ('63) THE DUNWICH HORROR ('70) HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM ('74) (Made for TV) LOST ('83) (Made for TV) You may find these in the Movies Unlimited 2001 catalogue and order by mail. THE SNOW QUEEN ('58) (Voice only) is out of print, but currently being offered on Ebay. For many other (but not all) titles, check BOB (bob@bpm123.net). He has an enormous collection including many SD films recorded off TV or Cable. He is reliable and reasonably priced, and the quality is generally good. Hope this helps. I built my collection over a 2 year period by checking video stores, odds & ends bins (Good bargains), thru Bob, and some fellow fans willing to share their treasure trove. Good hunting.

Right on Pam: Oh how those memories can haunt us, those little things, that remind us of someone, somewhere, but we can't always remember where or when. I (as you know) have my own personal everyday reminder of someone past...but who is very present, both in my memories, my heart, and in my life. The little brown-eyed blonde I met 40 years ago, married Come September, and was the image of our favorite star, the mother of my children, through whom we share six grandkids. Talk about old memories...living in the past IS fun, especially if you come home to her every night. Even if she didn't look like someone else, the joy of sharing a life's experience with the same person has no comparison. 'When those first fierce passions start to fade...it's that special love, a learned love between a man and a woman, that counts for everything' ('A Summer Place' '59) I found my 'Molly', we have our 'Summer Place', we've been to hell and back together, always looking in the same direction, and only Death Will Us Do Part! The old memories of the 50s, the 60s, the kids growing up, are priceless. Thank you too, Sandy, for leading me into my equally priceless girl.

I have 23 titles on tape, many lifted off TV, and in fairly good shape! I have every thing available commercially, even TV episodes. What are they talkng about? The TV lifts are not otherwise available. It seems that our emails are answered by very different people each time. BUT...don't lose faith. If enough of us hammer on it long enough, something should give. A CAVEAT!...Don't insist on a one week stand. For many, that may be too many in so short a time. Such a Festival should be spread over a month, and when better than April?Sandy's birthday is April 23...She'll be 59, and what a wower of a 59!!! Let's hang in there!

I tend to agree. It would be best to expand the showcase of Sandra's films over a course of a month instead of a week-long tribute. Naturally, April would be the best choice, being the month of Sandra's birthday and all. Actually, TCM has something every month called STAR OF THE MONTH, where they run a particular star's films sporadically throughout the month. In fact, I suggested that TCM do this for Sandra when I wrote them back in November. By the way, has everybody tried contacting AMC? Remember, they're a good choice for this project, too.

I've been intrigued lately about the movie THE MANHUNTER, probably because it's the most obscure of all of Sandra's films, so I decided to do some research. After a visit to Web TV's All Movie Guide, this is the info I came up with. THE MANHUNTER was actually shot and completed in 1968 and slated for a 1969 release, but was later cancelled after a disastrous preview. Somehow, the film showed up on British TV in 1972. THE MANHUNTER was finally telecast on American TV four years later on April 3, 1976. As far as I know, that is the last time THE MANHUNTER appeared on American TV, and it has never had a home video release.

You are not alone, Chad! (and welcome back from Cyberoblivion). Yes the film had a disastrous preview, added to which Sandra hated it! She apparently has the only extant copy on Video, and she AIN'T SHARING!! This film may have had a brief run in Australia, for there is a frequent offering of an Australian playbill for it on Ebay. This is NOT the most elusive film, though. The most elusive, which NOBODY knows ANYTHING about, is 'AD EST DI MARSA MATRUH', an Italian production shot in '71 with SD. Unknown is the plot, who else starred, the production company, the producer, director, etc., color or bw, was Sandra dubbed in Italian??? The list is endless... I have written to a source in Italy that might shed some light. Will share if I hear anything. Anyone know anything? Please share.

Your absolutely right about the Italian production, Mike. That is indeed the most obscure of all of Sandra's films. In fact, I often forget it because I know so little about it. Out of all of the movie books I have, it's only listed in one and all the info it gives about the film is a 1971 release date. If I should ever hear anything more about this mystery movie, or possible availability, I will let you all know. Regards, Chad.

Hi guys! Remember me? I disappeared from the web a few months ago because my web system broke down. Between school and work I've been much too busy to get it fixed, but I've finally found the time and everything is in tip-top shape now. Just wanted to say it's great to be here again and look forward to chatting with Sandra Dee fans once again! Best regards, Chad Edwards.

Thanks Pam, it's great to be back. I have emailed TCM several times, but the only response I have received is the one I told everyone about when I contacted them the first time around. Since I was Cyberdead for the last few months I just decided to write them via plain mail, but again no response. I'm not saying that they have dropped interest in the project. Maybe it takes a considerable amount of time to honor viewers' requests. But I say let's keep at it until something happens. I'm not giving up. I agree with you completely. We've got to show just how serious we really are. As for AMC, they're an excellent choice for this type of project as well. I emailed them about two months back before I unwittingly vanished from Web Tv and I haven't received a response that I know of, so I'm going to contact them again. Keep at it. Something WILL happen if we are determined enough and I believe everyone on this forum has the determination, so I believe if we keep up the faith, our efforts will be blessed. I'm off to tackle AMC again. Keep up the faith and stay happy.

Welcome back, Chad; good to have you on board again. The status of the TCM endeavor is as was. These things do take time, and the fan community has to keep at it by writing in. Linda set up a site on her homepage permitting access to 'Livelyset.net' where its webmaster, Shaz has posted a piece (authored by us), with photos, and the Film Festival,and how to go about submitting requests to TCM. There can be complications due to royalties, and to the way these old films are packaged. It all takes time. One also must bear in mind that it is a very large audience out there, and Sandra is not necessarily all things to all people (I couldn't imagine why...)and we must be realistic. But I agree with Pam. We must be persistent. I posted a response to a similar query on the SD fan email exchange, urging persistence. We have to keep the faith!

Hi Kenny: Welcome to the World of Sandra Dee and Fans, Inc. If you can make copies of 'Tammy Tell me True' and 'I'd Rather Be Rich', I can arrange for 'Rosie' and 'Houston, We've Got A Problem'. I have no facilities for copying. If you do, let me know, and I'll send you mine, and you can send me yours back in the same shipment...that is, if you have equipment, or someone who can do it for you. I have exchanged tapes with other fellow fans, and everyone has been very good about returning things in a timely fashion...including the A&E bio. You inquired about 'The Manhunter', and 'Ad Est di Marsa Matruh' As for the former, my best source tells me that the film was never released, Sandra didn't like it, and it never existed on video.Most of her films have not been released on Video. Ten have, and are available commercially, for a price, including 'Houston...' Apparently she has her own copy of 'Manhunter'...but does not like the film. As for 'Ad Est di...' quite a few fans have inquired, and, in my position as self-appointed Professor emeritus of Sandradeology (PhSD), I have undertaken a research project to find out about it. It was made in Italy, by an Italian production company, and released in 1971. It may have been a 'spaghetti western' for all we know. The dialogue having being in Italian, Sandra was probably dubbed. I live in the Washington DC area, and plan to visit the Cultural Attaché's office at the Italian Embassy and inqire about this most elusive of productions. As soon as I hear something. I will inform all fans on this site. You are welcome to email me privately. Again...welcome! Do you have 'A Man Could Get Killed' and 'The Snow Queen', the latter a Soviet feature-length cartoon (1958), where Sandra's voice is used for the Snow Queen in the English-language version?

Lana, thank you for the update. I read the earlier messages. Does anyone have something concrete? Does Sandra know we care about her? Does she get our messages of concern? This could be helpful in her recovery. I know she is a private person, as is her son Todd, but I'm sure they would be happy to know we wish her all the best, and want her to get well. Johanna

Hi Lynn: You and everyone else! Check back into the Forum and you will see what a stumper this one is. Even Bob in Pennsylvania (who has EVERYTHING) doesn't have THAT ONE. I would gladly share, as I have with others, but that is one of the few I don't have. You say your Grandmother has EVERYTHING but that one? How about 'Tammy Tell Me True'? (Bob doesn't have IT either) Ditto to you if she has it and you can copy it. Happy Holidays

Jack, I too have been trying to locate an adequate copy of TAMMY TELL ME TRUE, Sandra's first and( I think) best turn as that adorable country bumpkin, Tammy Tyree. Unfortunately, it's one of the many Sandra Dee films that are still unavailable on the home video market. I first saw the film on The Family Channel when I was 11(nine years ago) and that is, unfortunately, the last time I've seen it broadcast. Another Sandee favorite that has eluded me is I'D RATHER BE RICH. I saw this one on Family about the same time as Tammy, but didn't tape it either. I suppose I have a gripe against recording films from commercial TV. Anyway, I'll keep my eyes and ears open and if I should hear anything more about the availability of this film, I will most certainly let you know.

Ditto here, Jack, and this has been said before! Two of the most popular films at the time, and later in reruns, were Tammy Tell Me True, and later, I'd Rather Be Rich. They are most DEFINITELY not available on commercial video, neither are they available from Bob, at bob@bpm123.net. He has over 26,000 titles, but at last notice, not those. Let's keep trying. Support the Film Festival (go back and read our posts, and perhaps we will get to see them again, and record them) Keep the faith!

I'd love to locate a video-cassette tape of 'The Manhunter' starring Sandra Dee and Roy Thinnes. I remember seeing it -- and liking it -- as a young boy many years ago. But details on where or if it even exists are sketchy. Most lists, including the one on the IMDB don't even mention it.

Hi Tom: This has been one of the most elusive of Sandra's films. It was apparently considered, after it wasmade and reviewed, to be so bad that it was never released. If a cable channel got a copy and aired it in the remote past, you are one of the few lucky ones. In retrospect, it may not be so bad at all. It is definitely NOT available on commercial video. You might check Bob (see my post earlier today with regard to a similar request), but I doubt it. As stated there, only 10 of 28 films she made are currently available. Go back down in the Forum and check my posts, to get the list. Or email me personally.

Cheers to TCM for doing the double feature of Gidget and Imitation of Life on Mon. Dec 3! Jeers to TCM for not advertising that they would BOTH be broadcast in widescreen! I have never even seen either of these 'Sandra' classics in WS, much less taped them. Since my copies of both were new and in good condition, I did not plan to tape. I was truly miffed (!) when Gidget aired in WS. Oh, I watched it, and I PREPARED just in case IOL was in WS. Good thing, too, because there it was as I remembered it in the theater all those years ago. Turner is usually so good about listing movies to be aired in WS in their 'Now Playing' magazine, but they let me down this time. Dang! :-(

Did everyone notice how Robert Osborne introduced the evening's entertainment with a word to the Sandra Dee Fan Community? Those emails are being felt. Keep'em comin', Folks. Osborne dampened it at the end, though, by espousing the '44 Birthdate. We just got word from Dwayne Hickman, that if the schedule was right and he was asked, he would definitely consider co-hosting such a Festival. As for the Wide Screen thing...us old-timers take for granted that in the late 50's, that was the way it was. All major feature films were in Cinemascope, and we had humonguous theaters to accomodate them, not these little Mall Matchboxes! What is available on Video (Both of these are), has been formatted to fit our TVs. Thanks for sharing.

At the expense of sounding redundant, this film is not available on commercial video. You CAN purchase a good quality copy of a tape made off cable, for a reasonable price, from 'bob@bpm123.net'He is honest and reliable, and has an enormous collection of titles, although not all of Sandra's films. Notoriously absent are 'Tammy Tell Me True' and 'I'd Rather Be Rich'.(This info has been posted previously, please check back in the Forum)

Yes, I agree completely. This is the best way to do it. It may seem somewhat time consuming, but submitting your request in this fashion will most definitely illicit a response. So you know what to expect when you email TCM, just a few short seconds after I submitted my request I received an email confirmation, then the next day I received a more direct response. This way, you will be heard and acknowledged.

Hello everyone, Due to the high volume of personal emails that I have been receiving from fellow forum members claiming that the proposed Sandra Dee/TCM Film Festival was their idea and not mine, I have decided to withdraw from this project altogether. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind receiving personal emails, that is exactly why I list my address everytime I post a message. But the ones that I have been receiving lately have been implying bad notions and I will not tolerate it any longer. I never meant to even hint that this TCM/AMC business was my idea. Everyone seems to be so concerned about who's getting credit and loosing sight of what's really important:Finally giving our favorite star the recognition she deserves. I don't care about my name. I'm not trying to pilfer from anyone. I'm not trying to take charge of anyone's ideas. I'm just interested in honoring a legend. But egos seem to be getting involved and it's going to complicate this proposal greatly. I'm not being Mr. Sensitivity. It takes a great deal to upset me. If I didn't feel the need to post this, I wouldn't. I'm not a proud person by nature. But you need at least some pride to exist in this world and I do. I will not be told that I am trying to prosper from someone else's work or ideas because it's simply not true. The only reason I have visited this site is to pay tribute to a great lady and this has backfired. Sorry for any problems this has caused. There will not be anymore.

Hello everyone: It was with great sadness that I read this post two days ago, and made immediate contact with Chad on this subject, for I too, received a couple of nasty ones. The only way to fight fire, sometimes, is WITH fire, and a sample of that is on the email list. I find it repulsive to have to engage in this sort of thing through this site, which is supposed to be upbeat, positive, and friendly. I initiated this endeavour with Chad, and he took almost all the flak. Research into this issue, and the lack of response from those detractors to whom we were able to respond, indicates that not only, to my knowledge does nobody hold any exclusive right to this undertaking, but there is considerable interest in it. Nobody is seeking glory, personal credit, nor any personal financial gain from this initiative, which has been proposed by us, and which has elicited the interest of TCM, the strong support of Shaz at Liveset.com, of Linda, our webmaster, and of the many friends I have made through this website since I first logged on in the Summer of '99. The purpose of this effort is solely for the benefit of our favorite Star, to evoke the faded memories of old timers like myself who came of age as she blossomed on the silver screen, and to familiarize new generations with the unique talent of this fine little lady for whom such recognition is long overdue. My satisfaction is in bringing our favorite star back into the limelight, giving a broader exposure to her work, and dusting off the many films which have not been aired in years, and encouraging the rights-holders to these films to release them on video, that we may better enjoy them. If this seems selfish to some, I'm sorry about that, but my position is as was! Sandra has taken more than her fair share of life's hard curve balls, and it is time to set the record straight, by recognizing her for the talent she always demonstrated, and giving her her just place in the pantheon of Hollywood's greats! She has given us all a lot of pleasure, many laughs, and even some tears over the years, and it is time we do something for her, if only to let her know, by this means, that we all love her and care about her well-being. She always delivered for us, for no matter what problems she may have been experiencing in her real life, the show went on, and she left them at the stage door. It is time we delivered something back!I have undertaken the task of convincing Chad of the nobleness and rectitude of this task, and that he should not acquiesce to such brainless criticism, but to hold his head high and forge ahead with it. I am happy to tell you he is back on board with me, and that with the support of all our many friends, we hope to see this come to fruition. It is for Sandra, not for us. If any disagree, as well some might, it is their right in a democratic society to voice their dissent. It is, however, their duty to keep it clean, above the belt, and civilized. Let us move on, and propel this endeavour forward, in order that our Star may receive the proper recognition she so richly deserves.

Hi, Did you get to see the A&E BIO on Lana Turner last Thursday? That was another great one. I believe Lana had much in common with Sandra. She was blonde, beautiful and glamorous, and her obvious skills as a serious actress went largely unnoticed by the critics and the movie-going public. A radiant and enthusiastic Sandra Dee appeared several times throughout the program to comment on Turner's professionalism as an actress and no matter what personal crisis she may have been going through, she always got the job done. The same could be said for her. I thought they were so perfectly matched in IMITATION OF LIFE. And I think they also worked well together in PORTRAIT IN BLACK. Here's to two extraordinary Hollywood legends and all of their glory!

Hear, hear! Well put, Chad! Yes, the two of them made a great pair as mother and daughter on the silver screen, and it is perfectly true that both delivered excellent performances, no matter what problems they may have been experiencing in real life. Sandra speaks highly of Lana in her interview with Celebrity Collectors' Magazine, both as a co-worker and a friend, and that affection and esteem is obvious in her glowing comments on the A&E Bio. Those truly were the glory days of Hollywood. I'm glad I 'Came in in the middle' and saw many of those films in first run.

Hello again everyone! Now, I don't want to get your hopes up, or get my hopes up for that matter. But I've just received a very nice email from TCM regarding my suggestion that Sandra Dee be a future host on TCM and they told me that my message has been sent to the programming department at TCM and they are taking it into serious consideration. They also promised to keep in touch with me on this and let me know if anything should become definite. This may not seem like much, but folks, I have a very good feeling about this. It's a first step, and the fact that the station has contacted me so promptly and is showing an interest excites me very much. I've written to other stations long ago in the past about other matters and I'm still waiting for a response! The fact that TCM would take the time to let me know that they are acknowledging my suggestions is more than considerate. Not many other stations would do that. But think about this you guys. If they are willing to listen to me, they are willing to listen to you. I seem to be having a significant impact on my own, but as I said in yesterday's post, I'll never be able to pull through this on my own. I need as much support as I can get. I'm dead serious, here.

We seem to be making a breakthrough here, and I want to keep that going. Let's stick together. This is our chance to get our favorite star back to work or, at the very least, get one of her friends to help put her name back up in lights and pay tribute to her and her incomparable contribution to the motion picture industry. I'm sorry to prattle on, but there's no time like the present. The time is now. We're making progress. Let's keep it that way. You may think that I'm getting carried away and making too much out of this response, but don't you see, as long as there's a chance, it's worth fighting for. We have the chance.

Hello, Chad, I applaud your effort with TCM. I e-mailed in support this afternoon. Sandra holds such a special place and time in the lives of so many. As a baby-boomer this is especially true for me. I pointed out how many movies she could introduce--many more than her own. I think your point is well taken that they will respond to numbers, so come on everyone and e-mail TCM! I was heartened to see in the December issue of 'Now Playing' that there will be a Sandra Dee double feature of 'Gidget' and 'Imitation of Life' on December 3. P.S. How does Linda feel about this effort?

Dear Lana, Thanks so much for your support. I can't tell you how much this means to me. I'm glad you understand how important it is that everyone partake in this effort. Also, thanks for the heads-up on the 'Gidget/Imitation of Life' double feature. Regards, Chad.

Hi Marjorie, TCM is a 24-hour-a-day, commercial-free cable network called Turner Classic Movies which specializes in some of the best older movies ever made. Like Showtime, Cinemax, and The Movie Channel, TCM is an extra feature you have to pay for seperately and on a monthly basis. Your local cable company probably does offer it. I would ask because it's worth it. Now Playing is TCM's monthly channel guide which lists the films that the station will be showing that particular month. I checked TCM's website(turnerclassicmovies.com), and sure enough, they will be running two of Sandra's best-loved films, GIDGET and IMITATION OF LIFE, back-to-back on December the 3rd starting at 8:00pm. As for Miss Dee's present state of health, this subject is a popular one among her fans, but it's being kept pretty hush, hush, which seems to be the wishes of Sandra's family. As far as anyone knows, and fellow forum members PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong, Miss Dee is currently still undergoing dialysis. Regards, Chad

Hello everyone: You may have noticed that my latest obsession is trying to find a way to get our favorite actress back into the public eye. Forum regular Mike Valeur and I have been discussing this matter privately, and it seems that the ideal choice for this right now is TCM which frequently does week-long tributes to actors and directors, showcasing their work and even having that particular actor or director co-host the films. This week, tribute is being payed to the director Vincent Sherman who is co-hosting the films with Robert Osborne. Sherman hasn't directed a film in years. Don't you see, this would be a great way to reacquaint Miss Dee with the public, and at the same time be a magnificent tribute to this truly remarkable woman and her work. I have already contacted TCM about this and if you would like to show your support, you can email TCM at turnerclassicmovies.com And AMC has been known to take on similar projects. You can email them at info@amctv.com I, myself, have contacted both places. But honestly, folks. It's going to take more than just my voice in order to seriously get this project lifted off the ground. How about it? Regards, Chad

Hi Chad, Getting Sandra back in the limelight is a great idea. The possible problem I see is her health. I know she is in and out of Cedars here in Los Angles. She is on kidney dialisis and not to well. Hopefully she will get her health back and be able to make her fans happy and be able to see her again.

Yes Jodie, You're absolutely right. There is Sandra's delicate state of health to consider. But keep in mind, getting Miss Dee back into the public eye is not the only reason that Mike and I initiated this TCM project. We are also trying to do this so we can honor her and show her our great appreciation and admiration for her work. If for some reason she cannot partake in this most worthwhile event, I'm sure one of her past co-stars(Troy Donahue, John Saxon, Dwayne Hickman, James Darren, Cliff Robertson, etc.), if available, would gladly do the honors. This film festival, if it should actually come to fruition, would at least show Miss Dee that she still has a loyal following and might even make her feel better. This possibility would make the TCM project significant on that score alone. Kindest regards, Chad.

Hello, Jodie, How do you know about Sandra's health? Do you work in the medical community? We, on this site and fan forum, are just frantic for info about Sandra's CURRENT state of health. The A & E biography was done quite a while ago, and in any case was aired for the first time back in June. However, I know that working within the medical community (dr., nurse, lab tech, etc.), there are few secrets. When a famous person is ill almost everyone involved eventually finds out. And if someone as famous as Sandra Dee is 'in and out of Cedars,' the entire staff will know. We just want to know something substantial--not a rumor. As always, our thoughts and prayers are with Sandra and her family. Lana

Hi Lana, Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. I haven't been on line lately. As far as Sandra's health, I saw her son Dodd on TV and he was talking about her condition. He was very concerned and even mentioned giving up one of his kidneys. I really can't remember what TV show it was on. I live in the Los Angeles area and in the business. Her dialysis is at Cedars. I can't comment on how sick or how much better she is now, that I don't know. We can only hope that she is improving and we will be seeing her again on the screen. Dodd claims his Mom is strong and wants to get better.

I couldn't have said it better myself, Chad. Sandra deserves to be brought back into the limelight! Life has thrown her more than her share of curve-balls. Showcasing her work, and the pleasure and laughter (and sometimes tears)she has brought us over the years, with her as co-host, or if her health does not permit that, someone who cares for her and knows her work well as co-host, is long overdue. TCM and AMC are the best vehicles for such an undertaking, and I would encourage all who see this and are of like mind to email them (addresses in Chad's post) and tell them how you feel. If enough of us get together, we can make a difference. Mountains CAN be moved!

Hi Roger: I agree that the health issue is first and foremost. The birth-date issue has been being batted around on and off for some time now, and my co-author and I decided to lay it to rest by making a convincing argument in favor of what to us was the obvious. At least with that she will be able to file for Social Security benefits in 2004. You mention the Star on the Walk of Fame. Please read back in the Forum, and you will see great effort has been made in this direction. It is a fan generated thing. Mike Kennedy initiated it, and then disappeared from the internet. I took up the slack. We have contacted her current agent, the Larry Martindale Agency, who has stated that 'She does not have the tkime to devote to it'(!!!)The Nominee's involvement is basically limited to approving the endeavour, in writing, either in person or though her agent, and agreeing to be present for the dedication, when the petition is approved, probably several years hence. The fundraising efforts are up to the fan group sponsoring her, as well getting all the ducks in a row. Extensive homework has been done on this subject, but absent the express consent of the nominee, our hands are tied. I even contacted Arthur Friedman, her former manager, and sent him a complete packet with all the info. He never even acknowledged my letter! So that is where the Star thing stands. Any new ideas...we are all ears! You may email me. I agree wholeheartedly that the TVnetsworks shold feature her in a series...I think it would be great for her self-esteem, not to mention her bank account, to be working again. She is much beloved by nukmerous fans who remember when, as well as a second and generation of younger fans, who love her old movies. She has performed superbly everytime she has been given a chance to show her stuff. Do you have any sugestions, any ideas? Do you know anybody in the industry?If a bunch of us lobbies hard enough, we might get some results. But, paramount is her health. We all hope and pray she'll come out of this most recent crisis.

Another way to reach Sandra is sending her a personal letter to the Screen Actor's Guild in Los Angeles. The guild will then forward her mail to her, and you don't have to deal with agents and them not cooperating.

Mike, You know I would be only too happy to take part in this most worthwhile effort. Anything I can do to help, just ask. But I think Roger hit it right on the nose when he said it depends on all of us. Everyone's voice can make a difference. So, how about it? We shouldn't let this lack of a sufficient response from the agent break our spirits. In fact, it is because of this that we should rally even harder. What do you think?

In response to many posts and emails on the subject of Sandra's birth date('42 or '44), I am in league with a fellow fan and forum regular, who has at least as much material as I do. Neither of us wishes to discredit or cast aspersion on those whose convictions point to '44. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, and indeed, those who quote Dodd's book present a powerful and valid argument. We should, however, like to argue the case that many screen personalities of yesteryear, but most notably the ladies, had no objections to being made a few years younger by publicity departments of their studios, such perceptions being easily accepted by the public, and even friends and family, to the point of becoming gospel. In those days, one did not ask a lady's age! Such illusions have been perpetuated over time, and while they are harmless, they can lead to misconceptions which can in turn lead to spirited debate. We both realize at this time, our favorite star's birth year is immaterial. Whichever is the truth, we love her positively, absolutely, and without reservations. We would like, jointly and severally, to present our case for what we view to be a solid defense for the 1942 date. (We are not attorneys, so this should not be construed to be a legal opinion, just a personal one, based on careful research) All the major movie and TV star guides and catalogues( Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia, Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion, Movie Lover's Companion, Who's Who in Hollywood, All-Movie Guide, Bob Barry's Celebrity Almanac, Motion Picture Players' Credits, Hollywood: Then and Now, Ephraim Katz's Film Encyclopedia, and The Official Who's Who and What's What in the Movies) all indicate a 1942 date. The A&E biographic sketch aired twice this year, shows early on, a birth certificate of one Alexandra Zuck, as April 23, 1942. We have recorded this show, and have ran it back, and screened it frame by frame. 1942 is the date on the official New Jersey State Document. An article published in the Coronet Magazine in 1959, an interview with Sandra's birth-father, John Zuck, shows a photostat of a hand-written certificate issued by The Department For Vital Statistics, Bayonne, New Jersey, to the effect that Alexandra Zuck, the daughter of John and Mary Zuck, was BORN ON APRIL 23, 1942. Not good enough? It is common knowledge among fans that Sandra married Bobby(Robert Walden Cassotto)Darin, in Elizabeth, New Jersey, at 3AM, by a night-judge, at the home of a friend, on December 1, 1960. The couple received a waiver from the clerk of court the evening of November 30th 1960 for the 72 hours waiting period at 11PM. No mention is made of any waiver of age requirements. Whereas, to the best of our knowledge, all the North-Eastern States had an age requirement of at least 18(eighteen) years for the female party. To the marriage contract in 1960(many had a 21[twenty-one] year requirement for the male, some for both). For such a marriage to be deemed valid, and whereas such marriage was performed absent the mother of the bride, who had expressed her strong dissent toward this union, at least, at that time, and who by all accounts, relinquished her accomodations at the Drake Hotel, in New York City, along with her belongings and the bride's two pet dogs, leaving said bride to her own devices: It can therefore be concluded that said BRIDE proceeded with the nuptials as planned, secure in the knowledge that she was acting De Jure, and was of legal age to contract marriage under the laws of the state of New Jersey in effect at that time; therefore, establishing beyond reasonable doubt that the aforesaid bride, Alexandra Zuck, was of legal age to contract such marriage, for which she must have attained the age of eighteen years(ERGO: Born in 1942). Further, in an interview conducted with People Magazine in its edition of March 18, 1991(Vol. 35, No. 10), which featured Sandra Dee on its cover, along with an article, signed by her, commencing on pages 86/7 with the editor's comments followed, starting page 88, with an article written in the first person, entitled:'Learning To Live Again', and signed by the same Sandra Dee, while article states, starting at the end of the first paragraph '...And I received a letter that read if only I could live your life', and 'The Sandra Dee I was promoting was a creation of Hollywood. It was a lie I no longer wanted to support. I was born Alexandra Zuck in Bayonne, New Jersey, in 1942. My real father was a drunk. My mother, who was only eighteen when I was born, divorced him before I turned five', and then there's more. On page 92, in the right hand column, head of 2nd paragraph, she says, quote:'I remember it clearly(her second seperation from Bobby, leading to the divorce). It was April 23, 1966, my 24th birthday. We were at a party and I.....' Bear in mind, we believe to be submitting evidence beyond reasonable doubt but upon the evidence herewith respectfully submitted. Mike V. and Chad E.

Thanks for the heads-up, Chad. It was not included in the line-up I get every month from an otherwise reliable source. This is her second film (of three) with John Saxon (The first being The Restless Years). It is available on Commercial Video. Does anyone know where this picture was shot? The plot and the locale would suggest London, yet Dodd's Bio says Paris. The cities are QUITE different!

You're absolutely right, Mike. Paris and London don't have too much in common. To give you an answer to your question, all of my film guides state that the movie was made in London. And, a book called THE BEST OF M-G-M(incidentally, MGM is the studio that released the film) also says that it was made in England. Since they are the studio that more-or-less produced the film, I guess they should know. I hope this is an adequate answer to your question. Regards, Chad.

That was many years ago and yes, I did see it. She did do a good job and it was one of her major adult roles. It wasn't the cutesy Sandra like Gidget. I don't think I have seen her since then, other then on Sally Jessel Raphael and in a play here in Los Angeles called 'Love Letters' She co-starred with John Saxon. That must of been 8 yrs. ago or so.

I saw the show when it was aired.. It was very interesting.. Since she was playing a blind person none of the usual visual expressions and reactions were not part of the performance. I liked the show because it was purely dramatic and it held my attention as an adult viewing a good show. Pam

A powerful argument, to be sure, Karen, and I considered it when I made my estimation. However Hollywood wanted to view one its favorite stars at the time, even by making her appear younger than she was, there is much hard evidence to support the '42 date, including a rare article in Coronet Magazine, from 1959, which, in an interview with Sandra's boirth father, John Zuck, shows a photostat copy of a handwritten certificate from the New Jersey Dept. of Vital Statistics, affirming that Alexandra Zuck was born April 23, 1942. Her mother Mary had in fact attempted make Sandra older, by successfully enrolling her in the 2nd Grade at age four. She was tall and mature for her age, so it worked. That would point to birthdate of 1939 or 40, for which there is no substantiation. But the fact that she married Bobby in 1960, against her mother's wishes and without her written consent, unless there is a quirk in NJ State Law, is a powerful argument for '42, for she would have needed to be 18 to marry without parental consent. There is an account of awakening the Clerk of Court in Elizabeth NJ at 11PM to get a waiver of the three day waiting period, but no indication of a waiver of age requirements. I stand on my orginal position.

I don't know, I just think that like Shirley Temple(her mother had LEGALLY changed her birth information to a year behind-this went unquestioned until she told the truth)Mary may have changed information around to make studio publicity and all reflect the 1942 date. But, Dodd did EXTENSIVE research and he should know, as he is one of the core of the family. At this point in time, I don't think there would be any reason for him to lie or not know the true date.

You make a valid case, but in this case Mary may have made it look like 1944, not 42, as the birth Certificates say, so Sandra would appear younger. I do not doubt that Dodd researched this quite well, but it is possible that there is a wish there to prolong the illusion, or very possibly, true belief in it. It really doesn't matter...'42 or '44, we love her all the same. But a nagging question remains: How did she get married at 16 without parental consent? This may simply be a private issue which they prefer not to share. Also, it was very common for Ladies of our generation to shave a few years off their ages. Asking was taboo in the 50's. Thanks for sharing you opinion.

The official birth year of celebrities has always been a subject for further debate. If you look up an actor's or director's birth date in one reference book, then look it up in another, you're bound to find a few differences. If it isn't the year, it's the month, and if it isn't the month, it's the day. But no wonder! The entertainment business is very much anti-aging. Who knows, if I were involved in this business, I'd probably be tempted to knock off three or four years myself!

Right on, Mike! I agree with everything you said wholeheartedly. I have already personally written to Miss Dee twice. I hope my letters were able to give her the same amount of enjoyment and warmth that she has given me. Were Miss Dee to need a kidney transplant and I had a proper match, I would give it SERIOUS consideration. She's not just another movie star to me, she's a real, feeling person, and although she doesn't really know me, she's brought great joy into my life. She is in my prayers, and will continue to be in my prayers and thoughts. Chad.

Hi Folks: Yes, I saw this one on Family some time back, but was unable to record it. And while we are at it, Robert Goulet is Andy Williams rival in the heart department, and Maurice Chevalier plays Sandras father. It is a marvellously funny film! It, unfortunately, is at the top of my want list to complete my extensive collection of Sandras films, and Bob (bob@bpm123.net), who has tens of thousands of titles does NOT have this one. Did anybody out there record it? I will pay for a copy! Ditto for Tammy Tell Me True. I have 22 titles (Out of 28), and the Bio. Am willing to share!

Hello everyone. Friday night here in Cincinnati was a pretty dark and stormy night and in fully capturing the spirit of that moment, I played some suitably creepy movies. One of them was of course the 1970 Roger Corman-produced creature feature THE DUNWICH HORROR, starring Sandra Dee in her last feature film. Like ALL of Sandra's films, I never tire of watching it over and over again. This is in fact, my most favorite horror movie from the era. I also firmly believe that this was and is the best attempt at bringing literary genius H.P. Lovecraft to the screen. Considering it's obviosly limited budget(remember: the film was released by the B-movie company American International), I think this movie was very stylishly and tastefully done and was, for the most part, successful at capturing the eerie, atmospheric mood of Lovecraft's original work. Sandra Dee, as usual, handles her role with gusto, and I also thought Dean Stockwell was quite good as warlock Wilbur Whatley. This is truly one of the most underrated horror films ever made. I think one of the reasons that this movie has been so often ridiculed is that, like the Roger Corman/Edgar Allan Poe adaptations, it attempts to make a feature-length production out of a very short story. But I think THE DUNWICH HORROR succeeds and is extremely entertaining on all levels. Another one of the reasons I like the film so well, aside from the presence of the beautiful and talented Sandra Dee, is that, made in the early 1970's and dealing with supernatural/occult subject matter, the picture bears a certain resemblance to two of my all-time favorite series:DARK SHADOWS and NIGHT GALLERY. Can't wait 'till MGM Home Video releases their newly remastered edition.

Harry Smith did the introduction and this time it was Peter Graves at the end of that 1st show Harry updated by saying that according to sources that at air time she was doing much better and said something about being in better health than in a long time or words to that effect.. So you will find addresses and more specific information in the what's new and FAQ section ..basically all the same questions were updated there..

I just feel that I have to say once again that I feel the Sandra Dee Biography is truly the best BIO that A&E has produced this far. It was so tastefully done. Even the more personal and unpleasant elements of Sandra's life were handled delicately and in an appropriate manner. Perhaps this is because her son, her sister-in-law, and other close friends contributed greatly in making the biography. The bottom line is it was extremely well done, and I don't think A&E can make another biography that will even begin to compare to the power and glory of this one. They should really make it available on tape. I know many people who would purchase it. CHAD EDWARDS

First of all, I must say that you are right on! Sandra Dee has indeed brought a great deal of joy into our lives, and it can legitimately be said that Miss Dee has certainly touched and completely won my heart. As for that piece of the A&E BIO about Sandra being in dialysis, that first became news in June of this year when the Sandra Dee BIO first aired on A&E. According to insiders, Dee has her good days and her bad days. I suppose all we can do now is pray for her and hope for the best, although I would like to do a great deal more than that if I could. I love her so, and although I have never personally met her, I feel as if I know her very well. I just hope that she knows how much she has touched our lives, and knows how much joy she has brought to each and every one of us. CHAD EDWARDS

I'm afraid I have no way of knowing whether or not Miss Dee is still regularly undergoing dialysis. All I'm doing and can do is take the word of what others have told me. A fellow member of the forum had a recent encounter with Troy Donahue, Dee's co-star in A SUMMER PLACE, and asked about Sandra's present state of health. Mr. Donahue said she has her good days and her bad days. As for dialysis, there really hasn't been any further mention of that since the A&E BIO first aired. I will continue to check around, but everyone on this forum is very good about sharing what current info they have, and Linda Johnson, the kind lady who pretty much keeps this site up and running, updates the site regularly. We'll just have to keep checking.

There is an obvious question that probably has already come up in this forum. But since I'm new here I wondering if there is an intermediary, representative, or agent that would reliably forward cards or letters to Miss Dee? If she could actually receive our heart felt comments and good wishes I'm sure it would speed her return to good health.

I can sense your passion as a 'radical catholic' and though I essentially have catholic values I personally feel that any religion or doctrine has certain values and virtues that are recommended and each person has to see their own way to get through the 'rough roads' of life.I feel you articulated Sandra Dee's life without any support system well.I would like believe if her fans could somehow organize a drive to get her name on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood that might give Sandra Dee more strength to overcome her current illness and through the efforts of her fans she would finally realize the support she never had or asked for.

Replying to Roger Newell -- first of all, my mother's mother's maiden name was Newell, from Pana, Illinois. We may be related! Re: The Sandra Dee bio on A&E last night, it saddened me terriby to hear of all her abuse by her step-father, her mother and her husband. They ALL abused her. And now, according to Dodd, she's on dialysis. She abused herself, too, with the anorexia and alcohol because she didn't know what else to do to numb the pain. You're right, Roger. She had no support system. She was the helper, but no one helped her. She was the giver. Who gave to her? Tons of money obviously does not make one happy. Did anyone really love her the way she needed? Loved her for herself? She is a real person, not just a picture on the TV or movie screen. I wish I could write her and tell her that only God can love her the way she needs to be loved, that God DOES love her and only wants the best for her. (Okay, Roger. You've found me out. I'm a radical Christian.) But I just want her and everyone to know that God loves them, He only wants the best for everyone if you'll just give Him a chance. It breaks His heart for us not to know how much He loves us and accept the free gift he gave us 2000 years ago -- He let His only son, Jesus, pay for our sins with His life, and all we have to do is accept the gift and tell Him we're sorry we've made such a mess of our lives and let Him run it from now on. I did that in 1970, and my life has never been the same. I've been through some tough times, but He's always brought me through and He's a master of taking what was meant for bad for me and turning it into something good for me. SORRY. I'm preaching, but I can't help it. If only everyone knew! If Sandra Dee could know, it would make such a difference in her life. Ask Jane Fonda. She knows now. Check out what's happening in Israel against the prophecies in the Bible. When everyone in the world turns against Israel, watch out. Time is short. Get ready to meet God. Everyone will. Everyone dies. Nobody lives forever. Everybody needs to get ready.

Hi everyone. I'm new to this. Just watched A&E's bio on Sandra Dee last night (10/18/00) and was very concerned about her health, i.e., her son, Dodd, said she was on dialysis now. Does anyone know how she is doing? Does anyone know how I can write to her, send her a card, call her? I just loved watching her earlier films (especially 'Summer Place') and hate to hear that she may be so ill, and just want to write her and tell her I'm praying for her. Thanksabunch, y'all.

I just watched the A&E Bio on Sandra Dee.They skipped over the Tammie movies for the most part and I don't think they captured how popular she was raher focusing more on the Bobby Darin relationship.I personally think it's a damn sad story and a good actress,good person, and a star in her ownright just never had the support system she needed during the transition period when her studio contract ran out.I wish A&E would have identified and interviewed her agent during these times for a better insight to that period of her life.The bottom line for me...she was beautiful,talented, and a tragedy at age 30.I never saw anyone that helped her....she helped her mom,Bobby Darin, and had the responsibility of her child.I never saw in this Bio of anyone ever taking care of her and this had a residual affect over the years when she needed help and support. I always liked Bobby Darin's music but he didn't help her much and seemed more the 'taking' type. You would have thought with his influence he would have helped her career by getting her a better agent,etc.Sandra Dee had her 'demons' after the studio contract ran out but with all she endured throughout her early life it's a wonder she didn't commit suicide or marry 8 times or so like Elizabeth Taylor.I hope Sandra Dee gets healthy and Hollywood finally gives her the recognition she richly deserves.The Walk of Fame omission is a gross oversight and quite frankly she deserves to be a Special Presenter at the Oscar's with a collection of her movie clips shown to the world before she comes out on stage.This lack of recoginition now only reflects the struggles she had when she was 30 years old.....she never had an agent equal to her success on screen which ultimately hurt her career.Geez...you would think that Johnny Grant at his age would remember her star appeal and would correct the oversight on the Walk of Fame.I applaud her son for his loving and understanding devotion to her.Hollywood go to hell because Sandra Dee deserved and DESERVES better.

As much as I love and admire Bobby Darin, I must admit that I believe you're right, he did not give Sandra the emotional support or any other support that she so desperately needed. I also personally feel that he picked the worst time to leave her in their marriage. If he had just showed a little more interest and consideration, perhaps things would have turned out differently for Sandy. When someone is going through depression and drinking problems, that is the time to stick by them the most. I'm not saying Bobby didn't love Sandra, I have no doubt that he did, but his actions didn't always show it. That beautiful, sweet, and talented lady has brought so much joy and comfort into other people's lives, it's about time someone did the same for her.

Well folks, after seeing it for the ump-teenth time, I'm still amazed at the A&E Sandra Dee Bio. Call me crazy, but in all the years that they've been producing these, I think this is their best one yet! This particular biography has touched me and made a lasting impression on me. Of course, the fact that Sandra Dee is my favorite actress might have something to do with it, but this BIO was very strong and filled me with great sadness. A woman that beautiful and that talented who has given so many people so much joy just shouldn't have to go through all the horrors and hardships that she has. But I think I speak for most everyone else when I say that Sandra has faced these troubles very well and established herself as not only a gifted actress, but a truly courageous and remarkable woman that has left an indelible impression on us all. God Bless you Sandra. We all love you dearly.

Anyhow, I cannot help YOU as I no longer have access to a second VCR. When I copied my copy for another fan after this S.Dee BiO aired Jun 26th, I did have access to a second VRC so my husband copied MY COPY onto another VHS tape for another Sandra Dee Fan. I am writing AT THIS LATE HOUR..SORRY ) TO SUGGEST YOU POST THIS SAME REQUEST ON LINDA'S GREAT BOBBY DARIN SITE. lOTS OF GREAT PEOPLE THERE ON LINDA'S SITE. Maybe someone there on Bobby Darin site has access to two VCR's without a big hassle and would copy (their copy) onto a VHS tape for you. That's all I can think of to suggest you try.

Sandra Dee deserves not only recognition with Walk of Fame but others as well.I think she deserves consideration in the Oscar's Show as a Special Presenter and show the world a collection of movie clips from her previous work.Hollywood ....WAKE UP! The time is right and long overdue for this woman who made millions and millions for the studios and had millions of fans that still remember her STAR PRESECENCE and potentially many more if her 'due credit' is ever realized.

You are RIGHT ON, Roger! As for the Star of Fame initiative, several of us launched a major campaign to get this moving over a year ago. Unfortunately, results have been discouraging, and I believe the main reason is Sandras health, which is currently quite poor (barring updates to the contrary). Read back...WAY BACK..into the Forum posts, and you will see what has been attempted. There is a requirement that she personally attend the dedication ...which could, once approved, be several years down the line. She, or her authorized agent, also needs to signify her approval of such an effort, which involves considerable fund-raising and a large organizational effort. Thus far, we have been unable to achieve this goal. You may email me for further clarification, for to detail it here would be too lengthy! Thanks for your support!I am sure your idea of using her as a Special Presenter at a future Oscar ceremony is meritorious...again...possible health considerations. Keep the faith!

Hello again, everyone. I watched the classic 1959 film IMITATION OF LIFE for about the one hundredth time this afternoon, but just like all the other Sandra Dee movies I've seen, the movie gets fresher and even more exciting every time I see it. Of course, I credit most of this to Miss Dee since she's the main reason I watch the film. But, you also have to credit Lana Turner. She was one heck of an actress too. Natalie Wood was to originally play the Sandra Dee role, but honestly folks, I don't think Natalie could have done the outstanding job that our favorite Sandra did. I think Lana Turner and Sandra Dee were both perfectly cast as mother and daughter. Turner was by then an established star, but the up and coming Sandy more than held her own. Next to A SUMMER PLACE, I think this is the film that showcases her dramatic skills best. What do you think?????

I agree that this was one of Sandras best dramatic roles, although Molly in A Summer Place really runs the whole range from giggly teen to terrified young woman in hysterics (The Doctor scene)I saw Imitation first run in Washington DC in 1959 and was impressed with the cute little blonde who played Suzy, whom I was seeing for the first time. Sandra and Lana were beautifully matched as a screen mother&daughter. I have my copy and never tire of watching it, it was one of their best performances.

There's no question about it, Sandra Dee has had many wonderful moments on film. But she did some of her strongest work as an adult on television in the '70's. One of my all-time favorites is an episode from the popular anthology series NIGHT GALLERY hosted by Rod Serling. In a 1971 episode called TELL DAVID, Dee plays a beautiful, but possessive woman whose jealousy eventually destroys her and the lives of those around her. I'm sure the many other Sandra Dee fans like myself who has seen this particular episode will agree that this is one of Dee's most memorable moments. Sandra did another NIGHT GALLERY episode about a year after this one which I haven't seen. I believe it was called SPECTRE IN TAP SHOES. If anyone has seen that one, I'd really appreciate anything you could tell me about it.

Chad, There is a Night Gallery site on the net, that gives details and summaries of the collection.. Also Columbia House Has the Videos of the shows in a series.. I was a Rod serling nut in another life also. and I am getting the whole collection.. In fact it even has the BD episode with burgess Meredith that is one I have already gotten.. also SCi-fi some times shows Night Gallery for a few months each year and also some times an occasional show in the wee hours .. so if you have direct tv with the 48 hours of program guide it also has summary of what is on each show. I'll keep an eye out for you and let you know if that one shows up in the future. It is an interesting show and has a real twist to the ending.

Thanks for all of your info Pam, I really appreciate it. Night Gallery was indeed a great show. It gave many talented performers like Sandra Dee the opportunity to play roles that they never played before. Yes, I did see the episode with Burgess Meredith you spoke of and that was an especially good one. Thanks for keeping me informed, and if there's ever anything I can do, don't hesitate to ask.

As a fellow fan has already pointed out on this site, there has been much speculation about what year Sandra Dee was born. 1944 or 1942? I have many different film encyclopedias, and all of them list Dee's birth date as 1942. Of course, just because it's in black and white, doesn't make it right. At least we know three things about her that can't be disputed: She's a remarkably beautiful and talented lady and she will forever be in our hearts.

I think the actual birth certificate was shown on the Biography piece coming on again on the 18th. So whatever it shows must be right. I think I remember seeing a certificate seal on something.. However, I could have lost a few more brain cells this week,when I sneezed a lot so I'm not sure. Pam

My film biographies all say 1942. The Birth Certificate on the A&E bio says 1942. A fellow fans photostat of a handwritten certificate in a rare magazine article says 1942. Sandras mother was against her marriage to Bobby in 1960. Had she been only 16, she would have needed written consent. As a Doctoral Candidate in Sandradeeology, I say 1942.

Hello everyone, it's me again! I joined this site just a few days back and I've already posted a few messages, but now it's time for me to tell you straight out why I'm here. I'm a Sandra Dee fan, that's obvious enough. But why am I such a big Sandra Dee fan? OK, that may be obvious too, but I'm going to tell you this in my own words anyway. It all started ten years back when I was ten years old. Even then I had a great appreciation for movies from the 1950's and 1960's. It was a cold and rainy Sunday afternoon. A good day to stay in and watch a movie. It escapes me exactly which station I was watching(The Family Channel, I think), but they were advertising the three films they would be showing that afternoon. The movies they would be running were: GIDGET, TAMMY TELL ME TRUE, and TAMMY AND THE DOCTOR, and all three of them starred this beautiful blonde actress named Sandra Dee. I would say that this was the first crush I had on a major movie star, but this wasn't just a crush. This was love at first sight. The moment this girl appeared on my TV screen, I was hooked. Blonde, beautiful, spirited, and an extremely winning personality. How could a fellow resist? I sat there in amazement the entire afternoon and watched one Sandra Dee movie after the other, and before the afternoon was over, I knew I had found what would be my all-time favorite movie star. I remember thinking to myself at the time, 'yes this girl is beautiful, very beautiful. But she's also a brilliant actress'. I still hold that opinion today. Ten years later, I've seen just about every movie Sandra Dee ever made. I watch them over and over again, and every time I do I get that same excitement and enjoyment that I did the first time I saw her. No other movie star has ever had that kind of impact on me, and there will never be another. Sandra Dee was my favorite star ten years ago, she's my favorite star now, and she'll be my favorite star forever! There is just no comparison. With all my heart and all my soul just let me say: 'Sandra Dee, you are truly one-of-a-kind. You have touched my heart in a way that no other ever has or ever will. You have made my life more meaningful and enjoyable. I love you, I love you, I love you!!!!!'. This is my tribute to an exceptionally beautiful, talented, and courageous lady who has truly touched my heart, and filled me with so much love and joy.

Hello again, everyone. Hope you're doing well. I just finished watching a great horror movie from 1973 entitled RUN, STRANGER, RUN. It turns out that this was Bobby Darin's last film which he made just a few months before he died. He was magnificent in it. Yes, Bobby was a sensational singer, but he was also an equally gifted actor. I just love the three films he made with my all-time favorite actress Sandra Dee. But those were more comical films. Those of you who haven't seen RUN, STRANGER, RUN better be prepared for a good scare. This movie delivers the goods, without that trendy seventies gore. And if you appreciate Darin's acting talents like I do, you'll love this film. It has a great cast and some heart-pounding suspense, but unfortunately Sandra Dee is nowhere to be found in this film. The movie has been out-of-print for years, but it turns up on EBAY alot.

Hello everyone, First of all, I just want to introduce myself. My name is Chad Edwards. I'm 20 years old and I'm new to this wonderful site. But, being a serious, and I do mean serious Sandra Dee fan, I know I'll fit right in. How proud the great Sandra must be to have such nice and loyal fans like yourselves! Now, for the subject of my message.Whether you know it or not, December the 5th is a very important date for all you Sandra Dee fans like myself. MGM Home Video is releasing a newly remastered version of THE DUNWICH HORROR, Miss Dee's last feature film to date. Aren't you excited!!!!!? This sadly overlooked thriller is an excellent modernized version of the H.P. Lovecraft story. For those of you who have missed this one, Sandra Dee plays a pretty young co-ed who is tricked by a strange man(Dean Stockwell) into going off to his creepy family home with him where he has dark and sinister plans for her. Yes, there's much more to this eerie little tale than I'm telling, but to reveal anything more would be positively criminal. You owe it to yourself to see this one. Be assured, Sandra Dee looks absolutely stunning, and she gives her typically brilliant performance. But this film is quite unlike anything the great Dee has ever done. Please, don't miss this. I know you'll enjoy it almost as much as I did. Even though it won't be released until December the 5th, if you pre-order it now from Amazon.com, you can save some cash. So, what are you waiting for? Order your copy of this chilling video release today. Of course, I'm going to!!!!!

Hello everyone - Yes...I taped the June 26th BIO about Sandra Dee...and yes, (like others of you OUT THERE) I will also tape the Oct. 18th showing. I don't have the equipment to copy one tape onto another one (unless I borrow my brother's VCR..) so, I am glad I will have a chance to record a SECOND COPY of Sandy's BIO TWICE giving me TWO..in case one suddenly goes 'kaflooey' (where I come from...that's actually considered a word)... Is everybody out there asleep? I just wanted to come on, say hello to everyone, thank Linda for alerting us to this repeat showing Oct. 18th of Sandra's BIO. I think it is one of the best BIOS I've seen on A&E in some time. I get a list from A&E each month advising me who will be featured day by day and must say...watch these BIO shows often and the one they made about Sandra was one of the more compelling of many I've seen over the years. I (like those of you who taped it the first time) have watched my copy 3 times already. You HAVE to watch it at least TWICE for all the info that is in that one hour special on her to sink in. The BIO contains so much 'footage' of Sandy we've NEVER seen before. Just loved and treasure my copy and am so glad it's being shown again. Not so much because I can make a second copy for MYSELF..but because some of you maybe did NOT tape it the first time and NOW...you can. Just happy about that. Good night fans. Hope some of you have some 'post' soon. Love to look on this page and see where some of you have added your thoughts, feelings, questions, comments..or WHATEVER!! P.S. Got an e-mail from an ardent fan of Sandy's. His name is Chad and he's 20 years old. He told me loves A Summer Place and adores Sandy. Have not written him back yet but one of the first things I am going to tell him about are Linda's sites on Sandy and Bobby, the book, Dream Lovers and the Oct. 18th BIO on Sandy. I KNOW he will be thrilled to discover all the treasures on the sites Linda has created for each of us. Always happy to introduce somebody to Linda's sites. Good night to all and, God Bless!

Hi everyone, and you too, Robby: I just posted the October Schedule, which includes the BIO Robby mentions. My VCR was down and a fellow Fan Forum regular (She knows who she is) was gracious enough to rerecord it for me. My heartfelt thanks to her for her generosity! (I wont reveal her identity so that she doesnt get snowed under)We have seen it at least 6 times. It is sad to see how so much woe could have befallen such a lovely girl. I feel that her over-bearing mother can take a lot of the blame for this, as well as the circumstance of her filming days, and following Bobby to the club engagements at night. Nobody, and I think few marriages, could stand up to that kind of a killer schedule. She was desperate for some sort of normal homelife, and I bet there were ten thousand guys out there more than willing to give her that. I am a homebody myself, and have shared 40 years with my own brown-eyed blonde,and although I do travel on business, returning home is always a joyous occasion, and the home-life has been for me. It has to be pretty big to get me out evening, although we love to entertain! I should have been The Butcher from Bayonne! I have read Dodd Darins book twice, and the tale of their divorce really gets to me. How could Bobby have walked, just when Sandra thought things were perfect between them, without so much as How Do You Do? Perhaps he WAS missing a Jack and two Nines! He was an excellent actor (asides from a stage performer)but was never really recognised in that capacity, although nominated for an Oscar. Perhaps if they both had stuck to films, their marriage wouldnt have unravelled. Question for the fan community: Dodd insists in his book that his Mom was born in 1944, not 42, which makes her 16 when she married Bobby, very much against her mothers wishes. Now, they were married, hastily, in New Jersey. What were the laws in that State in 1960? I believe she would have needed her mothers consent...and absent that, no deal! At 18, she would have been free to do as she pleased, Momma or No. That makes 1942 very plausible, and the Bio even shows 1942 on the birth certificate, as does just about every other account. What do you says, Folks? Thanks for sharing!

I am glad to know there is an upcoming movie. In order for it to be anywhere believeable they would have to find someone as beautiful and talented as Sandra and honestly folks I don't think there is anyone in Hollywood that can hold a candle to her now.

A big 10/4, Sherry! I have said this before, but it was a while ago. Drew Barrymore and Kevin Spacey would be playing the leads, and while I think Drew is a fine actress, and really good looking little lady, I would have preferred Meg Ryan (with Brown Eyes, of course!) Meg has the same bubbly personality that Sandra always put forth in her films, and I think she would have been a more likely choice. Drews roundish face would be fine for early Sandra, but, Sandras later films show her to be very slender and her face more oval shaped. Could she ever do Sandras signature smile and laugh, her expressive eyes? What about the voice? And I know only one other person with that tiny waist! I do not know the ins and outs of these choices, but, Hollywood has wonderful make-up artists and hair-dressers, not to mention voice coaches. I think we may be pleasantly surprised! N.A. N.A. N.A.

Hi Pam - I don't check out the Bobby Darin site as often as I do Sandra's site so I am not 'up to speed' on the 'latest info' Linda has put on Bobby's site lately.I will check it out more often. Crazy about Bobby but, just don't check out his site quite as often as I do THIS one. Thanks for the info regarding the Chat Room. I am still new to Internet but love Linda's sites and downloaded (for days it seemed) from both Sandra and Bobby's site when I first discovered both of them. I need to check out Bobby's site more often. I MIGHT MISS SOMETHING. Still have not finished reading my recently acquired copy of DREAM LOVERS (spend too much time on eBay). Also bought a cassette of Bobby's that includes my two favorite songs of his, DREAM LOVER and BEYOND THE SEA. (Mike V. told me which one had both songs on it-appreciated that info from him). It has not arrived yet from Amazon.com but will enjoy it when it does arrive, that's for sure. That song, BEYOND THE SEA just 'makes you feel good all over...,' Thanks for comments you posted and info about BD site. Talk later. Best regards, Robby October

No - I'm not posting news flash here - hardly. I am asking all you 'in the know' people who frequent this forum (especially our webmaster-Linda)~~~is this still 'in the works'...a movie based on Dodd Darin's book, DREAM LOVERS. I purchased the hardcover book in July and am just now beginning to read it. Cannot remember when I have purchased a book that was so interesing...a real page-turner. Dodd Darin outdid himself. Sandra is to commended to allow all of her personal life to just be 'put out there' for all to read. That took true courage. If any of you guys know the latest on whether or not a movie IS EVER GOING TO BE MADE, E-MAIL ME OR POST IT HERE FOR ALL TO SEE. Also, most of you know a lot more about Sandra Dee's business than I do. I am a new member since I just jointed this summer. Is the movie which you fans have talked about earlier going to be a 'made for T.V. movie' or is is scheduled to be on the big screen? Anyone got any inside dope on this?? All info/comments on this welcomed. Thanks again for all the info you forum members give to us newbies. There are about 4 of you who consistently come to the aid of us newbies (you KNOW WHO YOU ARE) and Linda...you're always there with all the support any webmaster could possibly give. Just want all of you who help us newbies to know your help/info is deely appreciated. Robby October

Folks.. I have obviously have another case of foot in the mouth disease. I keep forgetting that not everyone has the free time to play on the site like I do. and I was thinking that everyone knew that Linda was transferring and changing around all of her sites. I think over in the BD.Net site she has written about it.. also there are some tidbits of info about the status of the project and there is also a chat room.. It is a really interesting place to look at if you have as much free time as I do. When I'm talking about my wordy self and blarney I mean, I sometimes put in so many words I am difficult to understand. Sorry for the confusion. It was not intentional. Besides I really treasure this place and this group, and enjoy reading the e=mails.. again apologies and I'll goback to remedial class to be more clear in my postings.. regards, Pam

In reference to Sandras health, I refer you to the homepage of this site, top of the right hand column, right of the photo, click on WHATS NEW. Go to the recentest update.

Site also gives a mailing address (Her Business Agent)Letters or cards in good taste will be transmitted! Buy Dodd Darins biography, out of print, but offered regularly on Ebay, for a better understanding of what brought this on. All of us who truly care, pray for her and wish her the very best! As for Troy, he is still quite active in show business. For a complete filmograhpy, check out Troy Donahue@FANSITES.COM Sandra and Troy put on a memorable reunion show in San Francisco in 98.

I HAVE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS. Just wanted you guys to have it in case you need to e-mail me REGARDING MY CONTINUED SEARCH FOR: Dodd Darrin's book, 'Dream Lovers' in paperback or hardback edition. I will pay a reasonable price, cashier's check, to the first person who makes me an offer I don't refuse. Jim Raudy is helping by seeing to it that I get an audio version of the book. He can sense my deep frustration. Gee whiz but he's a good guy. He's such a devoted fan and so good to SO MANY OF US. We need more like around...that's for sure. This world would be a better place. Since I taped Sandra's A&e Bio last month, I wanted to see it again so watched it the second time a couple of days ago. Just had to see it again. Still cannot get over how much Dodd reminds you of his Father. Mailed a letter to Sandra several weeks ago. Just wanted to tell her how wonderful it was to see her on the screen again in recent months..and not only her movies. So glad Linda and others provided us with that 'Agency' address. That's the very first 'fan letter' I've ever written in my life. Just had to write to her. Hope she is feeling better too! Did any of you 'regulars' here on the boards write to Sandra since Linda gave us the address several weeks ago? Let us know. Just curious. Best to each of you this evening. Always enjoy reading all of your posts. Deeply appreciate how Linda keeps this place a 'wonderland' for us and keeps it a 'decent' place all of us can come to, share, and enjoy. It means a lot. Linda Johnson is such a blessing to all of us and works so hard to keep us entertained. Robby October

Hi Folks, I thought I would add this to this post. I have had numerous requests for Bobby Darin on CD. There are several, but the best summarized collection is available on a remastered recording of a period LP, narrated by Bobby personally. Title: MACK THE KNIFE. It has 12 of Bobbys all-time hits, including Dream Lover and Over the Sea. Serial number and manufacturer: ATCO #SD33-131-2. I got mine for $11.99 at Borders Books and Music, several years ago. You can order it from your favorite record store. Try Sam Goodys...they usually have it stock, too. Good listening, everybody! MV N.A. N.A.

Thanks, Linda. I got my hard cover copy from E-Bay shortly after I discovered your website last year. It is probably the best source for such things. To all you fans out there, just put in your request, and they will eventually match you up.(Mine is not for sale at any price!)

Good luck and i hope this board on the site can help you find it.I believe it was still in print as recently as 1999. linda, webperson

I went online this May and found this site immediately (thank goodness.) Downloaded everything and enjoyed reading for hours. Asked Barnes & Noble if they could get me a paperback copy of Dodd Darin's book 'Dream Lovers.' They said Barnes & Noble had it on 'back order.' Well, to make a long story short...a month later, they told me they were not getting them in. I am in hopes that Sandra's BIO showing Dodd talking about his Mother and Father and the book (briefly) being mentioned will (perhaps) create renewed interest in the book~~~~causing the publisers to print more paperback books and SOMEDAY...I will be able to buy a paperback copy. I have eBay searching for a paperback copy for me. Perhaps somebody that has a paperback copy and is not a real big fan will sell their paperback copy. The reason I am taking up so much space on this message board is to ask ALL OF YOU TO ASK AROUND TO SEE IF ANYBODY YOU MIGHT KNOW IS WILLING TO SELL THEIR PAPERBACK COPY TO ME. (I'd be willing to send them a certified check in advance and just trust them to send the book.) I would not more than it's worth as it's not a collector's item. I just want a copy. I'd pay $10 to $12 (plus postage to mail it in a USPS padded envelope) for a copy as long a it was in very good condition. New, a paperback cost only $8.00. Anyhow, I have read where so many of you have read this book. Not only do I want to READ Dodd's book but I WANT THIS BOOK TO KEEP. So, if any of you fans out there read this and discover anybody who will sell their copy, e-mail me PLEASE: ROBBY OCTOBER robbdack@mciworld.com www.home.mciworld.com

I would suggest ebay...I know sometimes they go high but you can also find Dream Lovers at a bargain price....I received 10 celebrity paperbacks(Dream Lovers included) for $5.50......and it is a collector item since it's out of print. And no I won't sell my copy but hang in there with ebay and be patient. I'm sure you will have good luck.

Taped the June 27th A&E BIO of Sandra Dee. I enjoyed watching it so very much. Taped A SUMMER PLACE which aired prior to A&E BIO.(Already have A SUMMER PLACE on tape but figured it would not hurt to tape it on a second tape. Learned quite a few additional facts I had not learned from downloading from this site about Sandra Dee. Wish they had done a two-hour BIO of her. Just can't get enough of her. Miss seeing her so much. Thought A&E's BIO of Sandra Dee was honest and interesting and~~yes, sad. Sad because we all hurt that Sandra has such serious health problems which Dodd mentioned quite openly. My favorite film with Sandra Dee is A SUMMER PLACE (LOVED RICHARD EGAN IN THAT FILM, TOO.) Enjoy Sandra Dee in any film I've ever seen her in. Another favorite of mine is Imitation of Life. Think Sandra Dee is a rare kind of soul...gentle and still a beauty. My heart aches for her for all the same reasons you guys have mentioned. Isn't Dodd the image of his DAD???? I'm praying for miracles to come her way. So happy A&E did her story. As always, deeply appreciate Linda's work regarding Sandra Dee. She is the best wesbmaster of em all!!!! Robby October Always loved her.

Watched both broadcasts of the A&E Sandra Dee biography. It was most touching and nostalgic for this 40 year fan who never missed a film, and has 12 on video. I think that Hollywood sold a talented artist short by insisting on typecasting her in portrayals of sugary innocent characters which, while they endeared her to us, they denied her the opportunity to do more serious work, all the more so because she demonstrated early in her career that she was capable of serious dramatic work (Imitation of Life, Summer Place, Portrait in Black) She gave us much mirth, the sweet-faced wide-eyed blonde we all fell in love with, the junior Doris Day image, but had she but been given the chance, she could have played more mature, serious roles as she grew older. The premature loss of both Bobby and her mother left her almost alone to fight off her demons. She appears to have come to terms with them, although it was underscored that she has serious health problems. An occasional health update from a reliable source would allay a lot of concerns. Her son Dodd appears to be her rock! I wish there was some more direct way that her numerous fans could rally and show her that we really care, that she is not alone...that we love her, admire her, and wish her well. That address on the website is a PLUS! I have checked with A&E and find that UNFORTUNATELY that program is NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE. They do not, said they on the phone 10 minutes ago, have the rights to it. The show hinted that Sandra lost all her savings in a failed investment scheme some time back. The residuals from the sale of specials such as this could help her if there is a need. To this fan, she was always, is now, and ever shall be a real princess. Hand in there, Sandy! We love you! N.A.

Like many, viewed last night's biography with some sadness. It was nice to see her life get a thorough treatment, yet the undercurring theme throughout was focused on her misfortunes. She deserved and deserves much better. Seeing her in her younger, glorious days circa 1959/1960 (especially some of the candid newsreel footage) was particularly poignant when one now knows what she had already gone through by then and what was to follow. Was confused at the end when her present health was discussed. Kidney problems and dialysis are serious matters, yet the final epilogue by Harry Smith pronounced her as fit as she has been 'in years'. Hope he is right. I know Linda, the webmaster, has some contact with Dodd Darin and it would be nice for all of Sandra Dee's fans if we could possibly get periodic updates.

What a super Biography last night about Sandra Dee. Her story would be even better than her husband Bobby Darrin. Maybe the both of them should be the subject of a bio flick. I was really saddened after viewing it. A lesser woman would have been dead by now. She really has endured. I sure wish she would make a comeback. She could be a reallly cool TV sitcom mom during a Nov or Feb sweeps. She's the chick that could play both wholesome and femme fatale. IT was a very enlightening one hour. Thanks AandE.

Mixed feeling after watching Sandra's Bio on A & E. First, they did a masterful job. So happy to finally see what many of us have waited for so many weeks. At the same time, so sad she is so sick now and still very young at 57. (Speaking of age. Seems somebody gave Dodd bad poop as he stated Sandra was born in 1944; seems Mary was have fibbed about her age for some reason. The closeup up her birth certificate on the program clearly shwed 1942 and the birth year. Now I have to get the Internet Movie Database to change the date back). I hope tons and tons of well wishing letters now come her way to brighten her days. I was confused when they said she is better now than she had for years. Isn't kidney disease and dialisis quite serious? Loved the coke video! Didn't Mary look a lot like Sandra.....and Dodd, a young Bobby for sure.

Yes the show was excellent. I'm glad we have the site adn the contributer's who have shared so much.. I personally having been fan for along time back to 1958 or so can remember the news reels and movies as they came out.. Yes I think she was greatly under rated. at the time and now.. however all we can do is be patient and allow Linda to channel information , write cards of appreciation for Sandra and her family. cards and notes do mean a lot. Linda on today's update mentioned that she will be adding some new features and I'm sure lots of other folks have pictures and articles long ago hidden away they will share with the group.. we must be patient .. and supportive to a family who has been under a lot of stress and must deal with it as they can.. regards....Pam

I just finished watching Sandra's Biography. I've always been a great fan of hers and I'm sick at how her life turned out. I wish their was something I could do for her or give to her, to make her life as happy and forfilled as it should have been. Her films made me very happy at times in my life that could have mirrored her private life. That makes me so sad. I've look for a e-mail address for her and couldn't find one. I don't know what I would have said but I would have like her to know how happy she made me and so many girls of my age, when they had so little to be happy about.

I really doubt it. I have been getting a lot of email asking all this,and I understand your concern.But consider the source you are reading...THE GLOBE??? THE ENQUIRIER....????

Would hate to hear that Sandra is ill. Hope that she doesn't have anorexia as she's always been very thin, more so even than Calista Flockhart. When she performed in 'If a man answers' she was 5'4' and 99 lbs at that time though not unattractive. I can't think of any actress at that height being that light although Nancy Sinatra was listed as 5'3' 95 lbs, and Natalie Wood at 5'2 95 lbs seemed like they were healthy and energetic. What's the latest you've heard? Thanks, Del

Good for you linda! It is nice to read that your main goal is to really maintain the privacy issue and also another issue. that is patient confidentiality. No responsible hospital or physicians office will or would release medical or even confirm or deny the presence of any patient in the practice or facility. Also your responsible and courteous manner regarding not to believe everything written in those tabloids is excellent advise. This is the first time i have ever felt compelled to write anything although i have followed this site for a number of months. I fully support you and hope your efforts for official recognition will come soon. I noticed in reading some of the past letters that a mention was made of an official fan club in the 60's. Yes there was one and I was a member infact I probably still have the original information packet at my mom and dad's house. Yes that was a few years ago before grey hair and house payments.. I will look for it, It may have some information you might like to share. no promise's though , it has been 40 years and 6 moves ago. warmist regards, (I am from the south)

I heartily endorse alemaps position. No responsible care facility would give out confidential information to anyone oher than immediate family, unless otherwise authorized. The privacy issue is of paramount importance and should be respected by us all. I have read the Stars article (beautiful recent picture of Sandra, one of the best!). They tend to exaggerate grossly everything they print. A 1999 visit to a hospital was front page Life or Death news, and it was nothing like that.Please, Sandeefans all, RESPECT HER PRIVACY! Linda can keep us posted.

Copied loud and clear Alemap! I too wasnt good on first try, but it was worth iy for it opened a whole new world to me, including this mother-lode on my favorite former star. Several of us have enbarked on the project of getting Sandra aStar on the Walk of Fame. That is pending her approval and stated willingness to attend the dedication. It is on hold because of this apparent health problem. Check down in the forum, there are a lot of entries on the subject. Mike Kennedy in Orlando has been very instrumental, and I wrote her former manager a month ago on the subject. As for the defunct Fan Club, you say you have an original packet. I would love to see it. It would be nice to revive it. Linda is very knowledgable and I follow her lead, and you should too. Thanks for the rapid response. Best wishes, Mike V. N.A. N.A. N.A.

Am great Sandra Dee Fan. So sorry to hear of her kidney failure in April and the fact that she was in hospital for 3 weeks in April 2000. Word is she is very ill due to her health problems she has had for years. So very sorry to read this. Just pray she can recover. Wanted copy of book by her son, Dodd, entitled 'DREAM LOVERS'... but it is out of print..however....yesterday... Barnes and Noble Bookstore said they could ORDER IT FOR ME AS THEY JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE THIS PARTICULAR PAPERBACK ON 'BACK ORDER.' We'll see if I get it. I post this info just in case any of you have wanted this book and no bookstore has it IN STOCK...and none of your local libraries has it either. I noticed on Internet some outfit is selling this book for as much as $l00 or more...outrageous don't you think? I want information on Sandra Dee's co-star in A SUMMER PLACE who portrayed her FATHER...the (late) actor, Richard Egan. I cannot locate any site that has Bio on him, pictures of him, articles written about him, etc. All I have been able to locate, so far, is a list of his film (39) credits and his date of birth and date he passed away in l987. If any of you Sandra Dee fans (or anyone who reads this) know of a site(s) I could log onto in order to find out all about the (late) actor Richard Egan, please e-mail me.

How do we find Jimmy and what does he charge? The problem with most copies is that they are not viewable they are so fuzzy. I ordered recently from one of the companies and they are back ordered on Untill they Sail. Bobs video has a copy of If A Man Answers but he said it wasnt a 10 which makes me a little hesitant because I have a copy of Portriat in Black that is so fuzzy you cant make it out Maybe if we all work toghther we can find what we dont have!!!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully Universal will see there is a market out here for them and release some .

Hi Sherry: Glad you took my advice. Movies Unlimited had If A Man Answers. It was a slightly fuzzy, although perfectly viewable tape which must have been copied off TV. They also had That Funny Feeling and Take Her, Shes mine. Keep trying, they get new stuff all the time. I have 12 out of 24 movies. Good hunting!

check back into the Forum contributions. A lot has been said on this subject. Many of Sandras films ahve never been released on Video: Here is summary of the ones you can order from your video outlet: Until They Sail (57), Reluctant Debutante (58), Imitation of Life (59), Gidget (59), Summer Place (59) Portrait in Black (60), Come September (61) Tammy and the Doctor (63) Houston, We Have a Problem (TV-74), Lost (TV-82). Many others are available in video copies from off TV through a source in Pennsylvania who is reliable (Check Linda, the Webmasters referral further down in the Forum) There has been nothing on Cable since February (Gidget). I check this every month. Good hunting!

Hello Kimmer, I also heard Kevin Spacey was considering playing Bobby Darin in the up coming movie, soon. I think he does look a lot like Bobby Darin but he's 40yrs old or more. He's older than Bobby when he died. He also wanted to do all the singing, himself, which Darins son Dodd doesn't want. Everyone, I believe, would rather her Bobby sing his own songs. I personsally do not like the idea, mostly because he's to old to start with. How is going to play Bobby when he was in his twenties or maybe even younger.Don't like him,[Kenvin Spacey] that is. But, that's only my opinion.

Eileen, you are right, there IS a strong resemblance to Bobby in Kevin. He would have to wear a hair-piece. Bobby had quite a lot more hair! I agree that Kevin should limit himself to lip-synching Bobby s songs. Anything other than the real thing would just not fly with the fans, myself included. Do you have an opinion on Drew Barrymore as Sandra?

Hi Mike, Drew Barrymore would be a pretty good choice. I don't think I'd mind that too much. She's pretty close to Sandra as far as her looks, and she's young, but not quite as fine in her features.I think it's very difficult to find another actress, that's exactly like Sandra. Drew Barrymore seems to be a very good actress, from whatever movies I've seen her in and I'm sure they could make her look and act the part, very well.I like Meg Ryan very much, but I'm not sure she'd fit the part. She's sweet and bubbley like Sandra was in her movies. She's pretty also but I'm not too sure about her. She could probably do well in the part also, but I think Drew, would be a better choice.What's your view point about all this?

Hi Eileen:I agree that Drew is a fine actress and definitely bears a resemblance to Sandra. I find her features, as you do, not quite so fine and chiseled. What about Sandra s legendary tiny waist? Also, Drew s face is TOO round...it would make Sandra look like she had put on some weight. Sandra had a roundish face early on, but many of her more mature photos show her to have more oval-shaped facial features. I think Meg Ryan, with the right hair styles and brown eye lenses, would be a smash. She has the right lips, and the bubbly personality to match. I vote for Meg!

Hello Mike, What you said is so right, about Drew Barrymore's size. I thought that also.But no one else has thought of Meg Ryan, other than myself [and now you of course]. So I figured if Drew was the choice they could work with whatever she had to offer. Personally, like Meg Ryan better, even if she didn't get to play Sandra. As I mentioned before, it would be very difficult to find another Sandra. There might be Sandra look-a-like out there, somewhere. Someone unknown, I don't think that would draw a crowd though, to see the movie. I wish they would use Meg Ryan and don't know why she wasn't mentioned.I just hope they finally make that movie, once and for all. Don't you?? It's been put off so many times!! Take care.

Hi Eileen:I agree that Drew is a fine actress and definitely bears a resemblance to Sandra. I find her features, as you do, not quite so fine and chiseled. What about Sandra s legendary tiny waist? Also, Drew s face is TOO round...it would make Sandra look like she had put on some weight. Sandra had a roundish face early on, but many of her more mature photos show her to have more oval-shaped facial features. I think Meg Ryan, with the right hair styles and brown eye lenses, would be a smash. She has the right lips, and the bubbly personality to match. I vote for Meg!
---
Hello Mike, What you said is so right, about Drew Barrymore's size. I thought that also.But no one else has thought of Meg Ryan, other than myself [and now you of course]. So I figured if Drew was the choice they could work with whatever she had to offer. Personally, like Meg Ryan better, even if she didn't get to play Sandra. As I mentioned before, it would be very difficult to find another Sandra. There might be Sandra look-a-like out there, somewhere. Someone unknown, I don't think that would draw a crowd though, to see the movie. I wish they would use Meg Ryan and don't know why she wasn't mentioned.I just hope they finally make that movie, once and for all. Don't you?? It's been put off so many times!! Take care.
---
Hi Eileen: Thanks for your support on Meg Ryan. I really think she would be the better choice, but how do we get the word out? The Walk of Fame Star project has taken up a lot of my time, and, as you know, it is still being actively worked on. I dont know about another initiative at this time, without appearing pushy. The look-alike proposal is equally intriguing, but the problem is that an unknown might not sell at the box-office. I know someone who would have been perfect years back. She was a dead-ringer, but she is 61 now, and that would be stretching things just a tad. She has a 35 year old daughter (unknown) who might pull it off (Photos by mail on request).Keep in touch!

Hi Linda, forum members et al; I'm sending this to you but copying the rest of our quorum and forum so that you all are the first to be informed of my telephone discussion with Sandra's business agent: Ms.Yvette Banks at the Martindale Agency. The news is not good. I will post this on the forum as follows: 12:55 pm - est. (Orlando) Ms. Banks was very pleasant indeed and very appreciative of our proposal to get Sandra her star. She wanted to relay that; 'while Sandra Dee was deeply touched by your wonderful gesture to put her name on the Walk of Fame, -(her words)- 'Sandra, at this time, has a very full plate of projects to focus on.' and...'Sandra and her family feel that while this is a worthwhile cause to achieve for her, they would like to hold on to our materials until some future date when she could give it just attention.' While I feel your sense of disappointment as I do my own, I have thought this over and given it some consideration as to what to do next if anything. In one of my past E-mails I mentioned that sooner or later my boss would call me in to find out what I'm up to on my spare time - lunches, etc. My boss is a lady with a good sense of human nature and here's what she said: We have three strikes going against us. 1. We're newly formed and relatively unheard of...its been years since Sandra has had an official fan club. we're not it. 2. The internet is new. It's fraught with problems and misuse, and abuse. It's a loose cannon and there are so, so, so-many kooks out there! With this she may not want to be involved. 3. We have no examples to show of any successful venture to draw her trust upon. Sandra Dee is first class, why should she want to be affiliated with something... perceivably cut-rate? Unproven? So-o-o-o...I guess that's what our first step should be...we need to organize and do something first, then when time comes to hear from Sandra's folks we will have something, some feather in our caps. I have a few ideas...it starts with becoming an Official Sandra Dee Fan Club. Let me know your thoughts and who, and how..! Sincerely, a lifetime Sandra Dee Enthusiast; Michael Kennedy Orlando, FL largecanine@Prodigy.net representing: The Legendary Sandra Dee Walk of Fame Star PM Box 209 12179 S. Apopka Vineland Rd.

'Stranger in my arms' is available from Bob's home page that is listed on the video page of this site. Although I didn't get this from him, I have dealt with him before and he is fast ( got my tapes before he even got my check) and reliable. I am surprised this hasnt been on AMC lately, as it used to be all the time. Also, 'Reluctant Debutante' is available to buy new at Amazon and other places like that. The graphics of Sandra are nice on the cover and its not too expensive. Also 'Until they sail' is there at amazon too. I do not work for amazon or anything, just suggesting it might be better to buy these and show an interest in Sandra's films that are commercially made.

Just to let you know that most likely there would not be a 16mm version of 'Gidget'. In the summer of 1989 a local drive-in ran a -Gidget festival- on their outdoor screen in 35 mm; I know because I talked to the projectionist about it. They went through the film's distributor/broker to find their rental print. Ten years or so is not too long ago and the nitrates in the film would still be in good shape and not deteriorated even for that length of time. Gidget is so popular that it is considered a classic and if your start with the folks at the American Film Institute:URL// www.afionline.org/ you'll most like score a contact. Good Luck!!!

Hi Allison, You may also purchase a vhs on BIGSTAR.COM for $9.99 or on YAHOO. Just type in Sandra Dee's name and look for her filmography and when you see 'GIDGET' just click on it and it will tell you how to purchase it. I believe it might be the same price. I'm not sure. Maybe that might be some help also. I've seen other places to purchase the vhs on various other sites but off hand I cannot think of them right now. These two would be the most reliable. Look and see if you haven't already found your answer. Take care. Good Luck!

Just to inform the Sidewalk Star seekers that we now have a quorum of delgates moving ahead on the serious business of getting Sandra her star. Organizing is no fun, but there is a great spirit of dedication out there in Forum-land. Thank you Sandra Dee Minton, Larry Connor, ( Mike V. I have yet to write you - today! (be watching your e-mail.) And for your contemplation I have entered onto the forum these thoughts as we approach the Millenium and so much reflection is due: The Cultural Canvas of 20th Century Hollywood: 'The Imprint of Sandra Dee' Looking at lists of “Best of’s”, among the annuls of arts and entertainment movers and shakers, one would be hard-pressed to find an entry, under film favorites, containing the name- Sandra Dee. Does that mean she doesn’t rate up there with the Gishs’, Gables, Lombards, Pecks, and Monroes? Of course not, especially to her most ardent fans, which there are more than just a few. And if you ask today’s up and coming generations of cinema-philes who their favorite actors and actresses are, Sandra seems somehow woefully lost or missing among the likes of the Calista Flockharts, Winona Ryders, and Jennifer Anistons, the latest faves’ of the late-great Twentieth. After all these young women are the ones showing up with their navels exposed and / or pierced on the covers of Entertainment Magazine these days. Sandra Dee amazingly and never-the-less has now found her unique niche among these Generation Next-ers’. Perhaps the attraction is more than their parent’s nostalgia. Let’s look! The thing is that Calista, Winona, and Jennifer alike owe a debt of homage to Sandy in that our Gidget, (the first and original) opened the industry to young aspiring actors like no other child stars all the way back to Mickey Rooney and Liz Taylor – and I’ll include Shirley Temple here as well. Unlike Shirley, Sandra Dee was no baby flouncing around in Mary Janes with lollipop in hand. If she had done so she would have usurped Lolita two decades before her arrival. Sandra brought the “promise of freedom” to ourselves, as the baby boomer generation was finding its place in the world and gaining a voice in what gives. “Freedom of what”, you might ask. In much the same way as Calista’s character, Ally McBeal offers another way for women to find sexual expression, our Gidget experimented with that emerging theme in most of her early works. After all, we boomers were also, like Sandy “coming of age”. Directors and producers alike instantly recognized this child-woman attraction and power expressed in vaguely defined terms to both sexes and exploited it to our curiosity. After all sexuality was something the past generations would rather dance around than face head on. But it is, and has since been so much a part of our social existence - (pun intended). And where there’s a will, there’s a way. “It” needed expression to let us know we were “okay” for feeling about sexuality the way we did (still do) back then. Sandy exuded “it”, and there were other notables among Sandy’s contemporaries. Carol Lindley had “it”, Tuesday Weld wielded “it” around for tinsel town as well. However Sandra met the litmus test of wholesomeness and post-pubescent pulchritude without so much as a flinch and did so without the customary upstaging tactics that Hollywood loves to flaunt. You know what I mean. For that Sandy remained somewhat in the background. Why? Because “it” was natural, not manufactured and even the Ross Hunter’s didn’t know how to bottle Sandy’s pureness of light. It was her innate purity and her frank and somewhat rather experimental genuineness so often the clarion call of youth, which carried her image farther in our hearts than Winona or Jennifer would ever dream of going. Where the leather-clad James Dean ripped a hole in our psyche with a switch-blade knife and inserted his angst in place of our oppression, Sandra Dee mellowed under our skin, and seeing her pull it off was like pulling on a tight and fluffy angora sweater over our still-developing selves and feeling damn fine about being seen in it. It was a great time to be an “almost adult”. The added element she gave to us and to the likes of Winona, Calista, and Jennifer was a certain indefinable core value made honest by her portrayals. In short it was Sandra’s “heart”, which our hearts recognized and embraced the face of. To define Sandra Dee in today’s Hollywood star power terms and to place her in the top 100 movie stars of the day, well, I looked the top 100 up and she was conspicuously missing. But her value to our early and continuing lives have been definitely enhanced from having her step forward first for all of us as our example of just what we needed, when we needed it most.

WOW!!! That was so beautifully written. So articulate! Everything you said, is so true! Sandra has always been my favorite since I was eight years old until now. There is no one else like her, since!There are many movies that I see now-a-days, I think the movie is good and I may like the actor, but, I always think it would be so much better if it were Sandra playing opposite the actor. My life from childhood until now was almost in every way so similar to her life, except, I wasn't an actress, I was a dancer,[for G.Champion]Modeled in Sterns Dept. Store. for Seventeen mag. I married a muscian, had a son. Divorced after 5 years, also had eating disorder, & I'm Agorophobic now. I am also the same nationality as Sandra. When I was young I was similar looking to her except, I had dark hair & blue eyes. In some old pics.of her in black & white we look similar. I was told that back when. I ALWAYS wanted to be her. Little did I know, until I read the book how much in common we had. I lost touch with what was going on with Sandra while dating, marriage & raising my son. BUT, I always wondered what happend to her. When Bobby died, I was married then, my husband heard on the radio about his death, When he told me I cried. I liked him so much, too. He also, wasn't recognized for his talents until later years after his death, then it's too late. Unfortunately, it seems when a star doesn't have any scandal attached to there lives people don't seem interested in them. I could give many examples of stars,which I am sure you already are aware of,that people idiolize & are mention every time you have the TV or radio on. They were anything but, a role model. But, people seem to like that type of person.It doesn't seem that very many people care for the 'NICE GIRL IMAGE'. Maybe if she possed in Playboy Mag. or something shocking she would be more popular with people, especially these days. I don't know the answer. I think Sandra is so special, & an excellent, natural actress. I wish so much for her to have her Star on The Walk of Fame. That's the least that could be done to show everyones appreciation for all the wonderful, entertaining, decent movies that she gave to us. I hope that all turns out well,most sincerely. Once again your post was excellent!! Wish I could write that well. 'HAPPY NEW YEAR 2000', TO YOU & ALL WHO MAY READ THIS!!

Dear Sherry You might want to readback in the fan forum, I posted some indications a month or so ago, but will go into detail for you. Sandra made 24 films, many of which are available, but some of which have never been released on video.All are hard to find. Email me for the list and I will post it send it to you. A good source is MOVIES UNLIMITED catalogue,1999 they cost from $1.99 to $20.99 each. Check the classic film shelves at Video outlets. Not all are comedies. Some of the best are under drama: SUMMER PLACE, IMITATION OF LIFE, PORTRAIT IN BLACK, to name 3 major ones. Check the odds and ends bins at wholesale clubs. I got Gidget and Come September that way, at bargain prices! An early jewel (1958) RELUCTANT DEBUTANTE, was hidden away at Blockbusters. Check your cable TV. Know your titles! Sandra did not always play the lead, she played supporting roles, and you cable timetable only gives the top bill, s you need to know what you are looking for. Films such as IF A MAN ANSWERS, DOCTOR YOUVE GOT TO BE KIDDING, and TAKE HER, SHES MINE are only available throught that medium, so you have got to be on your toes. Good luck and happy hunting!

It was late Spring 1958 & I was a student at the U. of Paris, age 21. One glorious day, I spotted an obviously American (from her clothes) damsel in distress (She was lost and trying to communicate with a police officer). Sir Lancelot & his trusty steed (a motor scooter) to the rescue! Apreciative smiles from both girl & officer, as I embarked her on my scooter to destination. She fit the description perfectly, or as I realized just a year or so later! She introduced herself as Alexandra, nickname Sandy. Spent the day touring Paris with this lovely, laughing, brown-eyed blonde, who looked exceedingly young, but who was very poised and an excellent conversationalist! She said she was interested in the film industry, and was doing a Summer internship with a studio shooting on location in London. I have no recall of the name of the film, nor the stars, though I did ask. Nothing struck me at the time. She was from the New York area, where I grew up, and we compared notes. As I realized later, she had the sweet voice, the signature laugh, and the pertness of the one who became our Sandra. We spent a wonderful day together visiting Paris, but parted with no exchange of addresses or phones (LA was a little far from Paris to pursue a relationship at that time) I have always wondered who she really was... for she was somewhat evasive about herself. It was as if she, like Audrey Hepburn, had been on a Roman (read Parisian) Holiday, and I was Gregory Peck! (Whom she told me I resembled!) An exceptionally marvellous outing. Having reviewed the extensive portrait file on this site, I found an early shot where the resemblance to that girl is astounding! Was that Sandra in Paris that day? It does not really matter, but for sure, if it was, and she sees this and recognizes herself from those innocent days, she has an open invitation from me & my family for a grand tour of our Nations Capital area, where I have lived since 1965; but this time, in a nice car! If that was you Sandy, I would love to hear from you, and relive those carefree times once again.

I have been trying to find this movie for years. I don't even have the Fam cut version anymore because someone accidently taped over it. This movie doesn't seem to be out in video. If anyone has it, I would be glad to buy a copy. I'm also glad to know I'm not the only one who still loves Sandra Dee.

SANDRA's Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Here's an update - after working on this all through the autumn months this is where we are to date: 1.] The Walk of Fame Committee has since raised the price of the installation procedure to $15,000.00 - this is a restriction to keep the population of stars to a minimum...that's why it's important to insure Sandy gets her star in her own lifetime - just like her late husband Bobby's star / only her's will recognize her for MOVIES. Deadline for the current application is May 2000. 2.] We desperately need verifiable data on Sandy's community related contributions...anything! She has stated she would like to help the homeless. She has spoken out against child abuse and eating disorders - but we need these efforts of her's verified by articles, quotes, other acknowledgements. We need the names of the organizations she is working with and when. 3.] A petition link is on the homepage herein. What we need is to collect pledge amounts ($10.00 or more) from the fan-base and have a simple trust set up to keep the money payable to the Hollywood Walk of Fame Committee. We need a CPA and an Attorney!!!! Anybody out there? 4.] We the fans are doing this process from different corners of the globe by the seat of our pants. We need an address to mail to and a phone number for questions and inquires. In short we need a volunteer to head this up. I personally think we can achieve this effort on-line. but time is running out. I have the application to mail in with the bio, filmography, and community contributions data. Linda has been wonderful to allow us to post the need for Sandy's Star on her website, but it takes all of us to continue to work toward the dream of Sandy's very own star. Let me hear from all of you... M. Kennedy P.S. CAUTION: There is a 'Happy99' worm virus out there in E-Mail land!

Dear Sandra: I was delighted to hear from you! I have yet to hear from Larry Connor, for he is the one who started the ball rolling. It is my feeling that if we can line up 350 fans who would contribute $10 each, and get the proper support material to back the sponsorship, it would be a done deal! We do have to get together on it, establish how to collect and safeguard the funds, whom checks should be made out to, etc.. Any suggestions will be welcome. Mike V.

Mike, sorry to be so very delayed in responding. I think I can come up with a much larger portion of the $3,500 by contacting a few extremely wealthy friends! However, before I attempt to acquire such donations I want to get more information and be sure that I go about this in the right way. Please keep me posted from your end. I would like to contact Larry Connor myself. Would it be possible to get his email address? Mine is sminton@wallerlaw.com. Please contact me via email if you wish in order to get the ball rolling.

Dear Linda: I am in receipt of your E-mails of 9/22 inst. re: Sandras birthday card and the STAR article. As regards Sandras star on the Walk of Fame, please see my response to Sandra Dee Minton. I have not heard from Larry, and donnot want to steal his thunder, but to get this show on the raod, we need contributions. You have enough background info. to put the sponsorship on solid ground, and if 350 fans could ante up $10 each, we would have the required funds. I would be willing to establish a special account for such funds, and have them sent to a P.O.Box address I will give you. As for Sandras consent, I leave that in your hands since you are our contact person. But before engaging into such an exercise, I would make certain that Sandra and her family would like to have this, and you are our only direct link! E-mail me back and tell me what you think. Best Wishes - Mike V.

As a Sandra Dee fan from almost the geginning, I saw many of her films in 1st run. Many videos are available from catalogues at moderate prices, but many others are not listed anywhere. My collection includes the Big Three (Gidget, A Summer Place, and Imitation of Life, all available uncur, in VHS format in the Classic Movies department of video store (Forget rental clubs, they just dont seem to have them) Imitation and Summer Place under Drama, Gidget under Comedy. They are available in the Movies serious Unlimited Catalogue 1999, and are must for any beginner, or born-again veteran. Portrait in Black (Drama, and one of her best in my book) available from the same source. Ditto Come September, Tammy and the Doctor, Until They Sail, Houston We Have a Problem, Reluctante Debutante, and several other lesser known films. Check the odds-and-ends bins at wholesale clubs such as Sams, Price, BJs, etc. I found some of mine (Gidget) like that, at discount prices! Check classic movie shelves at video sales outlets. She is not always top-billed, so know your titles. If you are a true believer, the rewards are great! Titles which have eluded me are, among others Tammy Tell Me True, If a Man Answers, Doctor You Have Got to Be Kidding!, Romanoff and Juliet, A Man Could Get Killed, Take Her, Shes Mine! etc. If anyone has any leads to good quality videos such as these, please post on the Message Board or e-mail me.

Try Media Play, I am looking for I'd Rather be rich, my favorite , there should be a way to get them released from the studios, I wrote to Dodd Darin care of the book publisher where he wrote the book on his mother and father but the letter was returned saying they could not find him. Also try Hollywood Videos I have had some luck there .

Hello! I just discovered the Sandra Dee site last week! Wow, it is great! After reading Dodd's book, I was very depressed about Sandra, so I am VERY hopeful that she is still clean and sober. I have been searching high and low for a complete and uncut version of 'If A Man Answers.' Any suggestions? Everyone I've contacted has the same version I have--the Fam TV version--which at last count was 14 minutes short. It seems that every time they show the movie they lop off another 30 seconds to 1 minute. I really want this movie. So anyone who can help will have my undying gratitude plus whatever money is involved. I do want it recorded in SP mode w/ decent sound. If it is a trade you want--I have 'Come September'--complete and uncut in WS, 'Until They Sail'--ditto, and 'Reluctante Debutante'--ditto, and 'That Funny Feeling'--(not in WS). I also have 'I'd Rather be Rich', 'Take Her, She's Mine', 'Stranger in My Arms' and 'Wild and Innocent.' Also, 'Doctor, You've Got to Be Kidding,' and 'Tammy and the Doctor.' I may have 'Tammy Tell Me True,' but at 4 a.m. I'm not willing to look it up. 'The Reckless Years' is there also. Naturally, I have the Big Three--'Gidget,' 'A Summer Place,' and 'Imitation of Life.' Need one of mine for your collection? Let's talk trade or WHATEVER. Hoping for Good Luck! Lana Eades leades@earthlink.net

Can anyone tell me why Sandra Dee did not do the other Gidget movies? She was the best and although a lot of people believe that 'Gidget Goes to Rome' is not a very good movie I beg to differ. I think if Sandra had been in it instead of Cindy Carol it would be a classic.

Actually the last major film credit was 'Lost' ( 1982). Where did you hear of this film? I I think it's a re-release of one of later films in Italian.

If I recall my Sandra Dee filmography correctly, The Dunwich Horror was Dee's last theatrical release in the U.S. (1970). All other films after that, including Lost (1983) were movies made for TV. The film I was referring to was something I assume to have been a theatrical release in Italy and not shown in the U.S.. I saw this title in a couple of different places, one being in a book that's currently in bookstores that lists all movie stars' complete theatrical films. I'll give you the name of the book the next time I pass a book store. The other source was an internet site giving biographical info on Sandra Dee, which I can't locate presently. By the way, is this the same Linda who's the curator of the Sandra Dee website?

I am so glad to find this site on Sandra Dee. When I first got the internet about a year ago, I looked for her but couldn't find her. I, too, grew up reading, watching everything I could on Sandra Dee. I have often wondered what happened to her. Year before last my husband and I were in Pigeon Forge, Tenn standing on the sidelines watching the Dollywood Parade. I had no idea that Sandra Dee was on the float with Dolly. Was I ever surprised!! I just didn't get to get a good look at her before I knew she was there. I just remember her being VERY small. I'm 5'9'. I guess that just goes to show you. Sandra Dee can reach all heights!!

This is for you, Larry, and all other Sandra Dee fans out there in movie-land! I am a recent comer to the Internet and the first search I conducted was for my favorite former star (Who is still a star in my book!) I was astonished to learn that Sandra does not have a star on the Walk of Fame, and feel that we should all get together to raise the $3500 to sponsor her. This message board seems the only way to make contact, so I hope we can elicit some responses. Tell me what, if anything, I could do personally to promote this. Sandra and I are in the same age group (I am 61) and I saw many of her films in first run, although, since I was living abroad, I didnt see her until 1961 and it was love at first sight. I had just gotten married to a girl who, as it was revealed to me that night at the movies, was a lookalike! A convincing one! They are both my stars, my perfect 10s! A star is definitely in order for Sandra, and I would like to join you as a co-sponsor in this endeavor. E-mail me and tell me what I can do! I am still using my real name, but am trying to set up an alias as estcstsandeefan in order to have some privacy. I look forward to hearing from you. Mike V. unknown (none known) (none known)

My name is Larry Connor, and I'm 33. I love Sandra Dee! She is great! I grew up in Connecticut. I moved to Kwajalein Island, at Kwajalein Atoll, in the Marshal Islands, in March of this year ('99).

I love you Sandra Dee! :) My e-mail address is larryconnor@hotmail.com The first movie I saw her in she was awesome!!! And I swear it was a Gidget movie, and not the original, since I have seen that one since that time, the original 'Gidget' of '59, I rented the video, and watched that one too, that being the second movie of hers that I've seen. But the first one I saw, again, I swear it was a Gidget movie, and set in Europe somewhere, and I think in Rome. But the movie 'Gidget goes to Rome' of '63 has, as the actress credited to it, Cindy Carol, in the information I have seen about it. Well she was outstanding in that movie whatever it was, that first one I saw with her in it! It was the one that made me a fan of hers. It just seems to me really like it was Gidget goes to Rome.... but how could that be possible? I have seen at least three different filmography lists of Sandra Dee movies, and all show just the first 'Gidget' of '59 as being the only Gidget movie that Sandra Dee starred in.

Larry, While I hate to disagree with 'M. Kennedy', I would venture to suggest that the 'Rome' movie is more likely 'Come September' where Sandra stars with her late husband Bobby Darin, together with Rock Hudson and Gina Lollabrigida. It was set in Italy and was done, I believe, circa 1961. An instrumental version of the song from the movie hit the charts bigtime soon after the movie's release (can't remember the name of the group that recorded it) and certainly Bobby Darin would have sung in the movie.

Larry; The Rome film was most likely the 1961 European set screenplay that Sandra Dee starred in along with John Gavin. Peter Ustinov was the father figure if I remember right. Another was a film previous to Gidget, (Sandy made only one of these) - (every other since was a knock-off of the original scheme with various uninspiring actresses; including the TV series)...so, in 1958 the 'Reluctant Debutante' portrayed our Sandy as a schoolgirl in London. check out the filmogrphy under movies and TV in this WEBsite.

Yesterday 7/7/99 I was contacted by the Hollywood chamber of commerce (Walk of Fame); about the actual cost of putting down Sandra's star in the sidewalk. I was going from 1987 info from: THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME - Marianne Morino/Publisher: Ten Speed Press, Berkley, CA. PN1993.5.U65M66 1987. According to 'Anna', our contactee; the cost has elevated (of course) to an astounding $15,000.00 hence. I am still awaiting the application to be sent, but feel that this amount will take a special strategy to collect and insure that our cause is bona-fide, lawful, and accountable to Sandra's fans who may choose to contribute. If say, 3,000 fans sent to a bona-fide fan club account, each $5.00 - we would make our goal. I'm not up to managing money over the net...any ideas??? How did all the other fan clubs do this and keep it in honest hands? Anna's number for verification of this new twist is: 1-323-468-1376 Project: 'Samdra Dee'. Thanks for your input... M.

As you can see I think we should rally in support of this initiative. The Walk of Fame is a panel of hollywood types and we have to submit an application by next May 31, 2000. The selection committee review the apps in June. They vote on hundreds of apps. and come up with 12 to 25 artists in contention. It costs the star or their fan club $3500.00 to rip up the pavement and install their star. If we are sponsers...I'd like to think that Sandy is worth the effort...then, we arange a tax deductible donation to: Hollywood Historic Trust The next step is to decide where on the blvd. she goes. Hope this helps. I can arrange to get the application and display it on Sandy's web site...then we go from there.
