Actually it's nowhere near downtown Burbank.
This is Garry Marshall's theatre that is Toluca Lake adjacent.

Stephanie Zimbalist is a gutsy lady. I saw a story on the "Remingston Steele" actors who worked a lot of their own stunts. In one scene she was in a huge tank of water that had nearly a hundred sea snakes. They showed her getting out of the tank and shaking her long hair as a snake fell out. Another one was under her blouse.

I saw her play Desiree in "A Little Night Music" at South Coast Rep a few years ago.
It was done as a "small" production set wise ala the current Broadway production yet they still managed to have a dinner table for the dining room scene.
And Zimbalist was a fantastic Desiree.

Stephanie Zimbalist keeps the cure for HIV tucked in her right sock, but she refuses to share it with anybody.

Loved her in "Centennial" but she got killed off too soon.

Julie recorded every episode of RS and St. Elsewhere on VHS and still has them tucked away in a worn dingy box in her hall closet.

Stephanie Zimbalist broke the Nazi Enigma code in WWII.

There is never gossip about Stephanie Zimbalist because liars get cancer and die violent sudden deaths.

Maybe Stephanie Zimbalist can take over from Bernadette Peters in A Little Night Music On Broadway. And Pierce Brosnan can play Frederik.

Zymbalist is, for those who care, from a very illustrious family. Not only was her father a well known actor, but she comes from a long line of very famous classical musicians, including Efraim Zymbalist Sr. and Alma Gluck.

And despite all that, you still can't spell her name right.

I went to school with Stephanie Cymabalist and that broad is driven with a capital 'V'.

Stephanie was especially close to her favorite cousin, Diana Canova. Look for her in crowd shots of Diana's sitcom, THROB.

Stephanie and Pierce Brosnan have matching tattoos on their left buttcheek from their Remmington Steele days.
|by Oh, dear||reply 19||09/22/2010|
I had such a crush on her during her RS days. I will have to go and see her in it just for old times.
|by Oh, dear||reply 20||09/22/2010|
I've always liked her.
She was supposed to be the big star on "Remington Steele" but Brosnan's fame eclipsed hers. I think she handled it well.
And she did a fantastic Made-for-TV movie called "Caroline?"
|by Oh, dear||reply 21||09/23/2010|
In case anyone cares, her name in KathArine Hepburn.

Stephanie, like KH, has a distinctive and commanding voice.

Has anyone seen SZ's movie "The Babysitter" costarring DL legends Patty Duke & Quinn Cummings? The entire movie's on Youtube & I wondered if it's worth watching.
|by Oh, dear||reply 24||03/29/2012|
I saw it a long time ago, R24. It has camp value.
|by Oh, dear||reply 25||03/29/2012|
OMG! What has happened to her face in those stills at the OP's website?
She looks like she's transitioned FTM, then let the male hormones sink in for about twenty years, and then transitioned back MTF!
She's become a female-impersonator impersonator!

I have always gotten a gay vibe from her. Anyone know if she is a lesbian?

They really shafted Stephanie with the scheduling of the final season of RS.

The Babysitter is fantastic.

Is that like being next to, or near, Toluca Lake?

If you look closely at the link op posted over two years ago you will see that her partner is obviously the lady who produced this one woman show. So obvious.

R35 How did you find the old link? Is there a feature for this?

Actually, Stephanie WILL be starring in a play in Beautiful Downtown Burbank later this year. The play is "Sex & Education"; it runs from 11/9 to 12/15 at the Colony Theatre.

Saw SZ and Tommy Tune years ago, in a touring production of "My One and Only." Afterward, she and Tommy came in to the same restaurant where my (now ex) partner and I were having a late dinner. They were both very friendly, and invited us to join them. Very cool.

Does The Falcon do good work?

Only recently found out that Stephanie wrote one of the episodes of Remington Steele. It was the one about the cookie with zero calories.

I love Stephanie Zimbalist. She was one of my first big baby dyke crushes, dating back to the TV movie "Long Journey Back." (Cloris Leachman, Mike Conners, 1978).
I actually met her once -- in the ladies' room of Bullock's department store in Sherman Oaks, in 1983, when I was 16. She caught me staring at her in the mirror as we washed our hands, and smiled at me. I blurted out, like a complete fucking dweeb, "Remington Steele is my favorite show! I think you're a great actress!" She chuckled and asked my name....and then thanked me, by name, for the nice compliment, it's always nice to meet a fan, etc. She dried her hands, wished me a good day, and left. I floated out afterward, like, did that just really happen?
She's always pinged to me (including that encounter). Never married, no kids. She is extremely private. There is almost nothing about her personal life on the web. The only " boyfriend" I ever remember hearing about, 12-15 (?) years ago,'was a much older guy,15-20 yrs her senior:....very suspect.
Anyway...... I.can absolutely see SZ playing Hepburn.

R42 - Was she as gorgeous as she seemed?

R21 I loved that TV movie "Caroline?" Stephanie's sister just passed away and Stephanie considered living in her house, but she said while she could picture herself living there, she couldn't picture herself living there alone, so she's selling it.

One early role I enjoyed of Stephanie's was when she played a teen who had to overcome many injuries after an accident.

As Efram has just passed, I want to remember the family. I was very young when I met Stephanie. She was just starting Remington Steele, if I remember. Completely star struck. The first celebrity that I met in real life, I think.
My grandfather and Efram were I would imagine, drinking buddies. They sang with Dolph, the owner of the Fife and Drum at Dolph's place in Kent, CT.
Driving this morning, and hearing of his passing (AT 95) I had assumed that Efram had died years ago.
