Mid 1950's to Mid 60's *** STARLETS *** STARLETS *** STARLETS ***

So many. So many WHETs. In their personal lives and careers, what was their zenith? What was their nadir? Did these girls know what would be required of them to breathe the rarified air of......the Starlet? I present......

Paula Prentiss isn't Jewish. She is from a Sicilian family and raised in Houston. Hence the trace of a Southern accent.

And her starlet years were short. She became a leading actress in comedies of the 60s.

Jill St. John was the eternal starlet, which made her an exception. Pamela Tiffin wasn't quite as eternal but was labelled starlet for a long time.

Shelly Fabares had done years of television, which negates starlet-hood.

Starlets usually were neophytes---they usually did not have prior credits from "the legitimate theater" (nor would most of them ever be cast there) or from tv. Many started in grade z-movies or as Playboy centerfolds or featured models in low rent playboy knockoffs.

I think her two biggest roles were:

* BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S In the party scene she's the blonde whom George Peppard makes move by pressing his cold wet drink into her back and she goes, "Was that necessary ... ? "

* THE GHOST & MR. CHICKEN Joan played the role of Alma, Luther's (Don Knotts) love interest

I loved those dark eyed brunettes: Barbara Parkins, Susan Kohner, and especially Sharon Hugueny. She was the first of the seven wives of Robert Evans; she only lasted a year, 1961-1962. She was always being pumped in movie mags as a "Star of Tomorrow" but it never happened for her.

can't think of any major female star who had so so many lookalikes or copycats as marilyn in the history of hollywood.. i mean besides van doren and mansfield, you had joi lansing, sheree north, beverly michaels, diana dors, cleo moore, anita ekberg and others
