um hi

Brie as Peggy Olson from “Mad-men”.



Sheila Kuehl (Sheila James)

working on the Dobie Gillis show, while attending the University. The sorority found some Lesbian love letters of hers. She was confronted and removed her sorority pin, then cried on the way home–this was the sixties. After Dobie Gillis she was in Broadside,


which only lasted for about a year.
Diminishing work forced her to sell her Malibu home.
Shelia skipped two grades before going to the University. She was the little gal with the big brain just like in Dobie Gillis. So, she went to Harvard Law, and became an attorney back in Los Angeles, then entered politics, going to the California state legislature.
Before Dobie Gillis she was in another television show, which I haven’t seen. She also appeared variously here and there.
Such an interesting life. If I had better writing skills, I would want to write a screen play about her!

from Wikipedia:

“Infamous” is a 2006 American drama film based on the 1997 book by George Plimpton, Truman Capote: In Which Various Friends, Enemies, Acquaintances, and Detractors Recall His Turbulent Career. It covers the period from the late 1950s through the mid-1960s, during which Truman Capote researched and wrote his bestseller In Cold Blood.

Capote is played by Toby Jones. Sandra Bullock,


Daniel Craig, Lee Pace and Jeff Daniels also have featured roles, with a supporting cast that includes Sigourney Weaver and Hope Davis and a song performance by Gwyneth Paltrow.

According to writer/director Douglas McGrath in his DVD commentary, many of the scenes in Infamous, most notably a dramatic sexual encounter between Capote and inmate Perry Smith (played by Craig), occurred only in McGrath’s imagination.
Truman Capote, known in New York City society for his wit and fashion flair as much as he is recognized in literary circles as the celebrated writer of Other Voices, Other Rooms and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, reads a brief article about the murder of a farming family in Holcomb, Kansas, in the back pages of the New York Times of November 16, 1959.

Curious as to how the residents would react to a brutal massacre in their midst, the author and his friend, Harper Lee


(Sandra Bullock), travel from New York to the rural Midwestern town, ostensibly so Capote can interview people for a magazine article. Once there, he realizes there might be enough material for what he eventually describes as a nonfiction novel.

When the new Zody’s store (sort of like a Kmart –by the way I still have my life time Gemco membership card, even though they went belly-up years ago) opened in Burbank, Smiley Burnett (one of Gene Autry’s sidekicks), and Linda Kaye

from “Petticoat Junction” were there. Burnett had a big roll of what looked liked tickets. He would tear off a “ticket” handing them to the people in line as an autograph. It didn’t even look like he signed them. It looked more like his signature was printed on them! After a few years, I threw mine away. Whereas, my uncle, who worked at Universal Studio, obtained a personally autographed photograph from Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. It was one of his prized possessions –really cool.

Substitute teacher was trying to make it as an actor.

He once took over the Enterprise, when Captain Kirk, Spock, Scotty, the communications officer, the doctor, George Takai,  and even the Russian guy beamed down to some planet.

Also, my mom was going with a gofer at the studios, who acquired a Star Trek script, which I tried to rip off from him, but before he left :”Hey! Where’s that script!?” Somehow I knew it would have value in the future.

At the junior high dance, I’m sitting there with my legs apart.

Some guy comes up to me as says “Do you want to dance little girl?”
Shocked. I slapped his face just like a little girl would!

Later “Sugar Shack” playing on the school bus. What a quirky tune!

um hi


“thirteen-year-old Bobby Fischer announced his first [chess] move to his opponent, Jack Collins: “Pawn to king four.”

Collins, a diminutively proportioned man whose stunted legs had left him unable to walk, was propelled in a wheelchair along the crowded New York City street”

“Walking next to Collins was his slightly younger sister, Ethel, a plump but pretty registered nurse who was almost always by his side. She adored her brother and gave up everything –even marriage–to care for him.”

“In this case Fischer was not only visualizing a game without benefit of board, pieces, or printed score; he was creating it, composing it as a motion picture in his mind.”

“witnessing two players competing without sight of a board can evoke astonishment.”

“Collllins was the co-author of the then latest edition of, Modern Chess Openings, which contained thousands of variations, positions, analyses, and recommendations.”

“It was humid, threatening to drizzle. Fischer had just returned from the U.S. Open Championship in Oklahoma City, the youngest player at thirteen, ever to compete in the event. Collins was former New York State Champion, a veteran tournament player, and a renowned teacher of the game. He was forty-four years old.”

“Fischer grudgingly agreed to a draw, then his mind immediately shifted to what awaited: his favorite Chinese meal of Egg Drop Soup, Chicken Chop Suey, and pistachio ice cream.”

(from “Endgame” by Frank Brady)

Brie interjects:

The Wasteland Years in Los Angeles

Bobby  Fischer moved to South Pasadena not long after becoming world champion by defeating the entire, mighty, Soviet chess system!

Lived in someone’s basement on Mockingbird Lane for awhile. Whereupon moved to Orange Street in Los Angeles near Wilshire and Fairfax.

Existed on the royalties from his two books, and his mother’s social security checks sent by his lovely sister Joan.

Without the big bucks from the Philippines for playing Karpov of the Soviet Union, circumstances got gradually worse.

Occasional trips to Palo alto to visit his sister, who was married to a Stanford scientist, and a trip to Berkeley to visit with the current US champion, which ended in a bad way from Fischer running  up the phone bill of his host.

Amazing how such a genius could devolve into failure.

Always low on money, wearing shabby clothes, without a car, and no romantic love!

Residing in downtown Los Angeles skid-row flop houses, while searching book stores for questionable reading material, and who knows whatever else occurred downtown!?.

Going into coffee shops with a shopping bag containing oranges, and a hand-cranked juicer to make his own fresh-squeezed orange juice for his breakfast.

Time to go back to the 32 pieces and 64 squares!

“He [Fischer] connected all this with the rage he still felt for the loss of personal effects he’d kept for years in a store room

[Bekins–Pasadena] in California, which had been sold at auction when the storage rent wasn’t paid.”

[“Storage Wars!”]

Jane Withers

mostly from wikipedia:

[my cousin donna looks like jane withers –just ask mom!] is an American actress best known for being one of the most popular child film stars of the 1930s and early 1940s, as well as for her portrayal of “Josephine the Plumber” in a series of TV commercials for Comet cleanser in the 1960s and early 1970s.

Withers began her career as a child actress, first on local radio broadcasts in Atlanta, Georgia as “Dixie’s Dainty Dewdrop”. By the age of three, she was singing and imitating adult celebrities. In the early 1930s Withers and her family moved to Hollywood; she worked as an extra and a bit part player in several films in 1932 and 1933.

Withers’s big break came when she landed a supporting role in the 1934 Shirley Temple film Bright Eyes. Her character Joy Smythe was spoiled and obnoxious, a perfect foil to Temple’s sweet personality. In a 2006 interview on TCM’s Private Screenings with Robert Osborne, Withers recalled that she was hesitant to take this role because she had to be so “mean” to Shirley Temple and she thought the public would hate her for it. In a humorous scene of the two little girls playing with dolls, Withers tells Temple that she is going to the kitchen to get “the biggest knife I can find and operate on YOUR doll!” She also tells Temple: “There ain’t any Santa Claus, because my psychoanalyst told me!” Withers received positive notices for her work, and was awarded a long-term contract with Fox.

Withers became one of the top 10 box-office stars in 1937 and 1938. Her popularity was such that Fox gave her “name” co-stars: the Ritz Brothers (in Pack Up Your Troubles) and Gene Autry (in Shooting High). Withers also took a flyer in screenwriting: she wrote the original story filmed as Small Town Deb, under the pseudonym “Jerrie Walters.”

Withers kept working in the 1940s; she made 16 films for Fox, Columbia, and Republic Pictures. Her “sweet sixteen” birthday party was filmed by Paramount for the Hedda Hopper’s Hollywood series.

In 1947, in her early twenties, Withers retired for several years from acting, after marrying wealthy Texas oil man, William P. Moss Jr., and had three children by him. The marriage was not a happy one and lasted only six years. Though she suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, it never stopped Jane’s spirit.

In 1955, she remarried, this time to Kenneth Errair, one-quarter of the harmonizing group “The Four Freshmen.” They had two children. The same year, she earned a supporting role in the film classic, Giant.

In 1955, while filming the movie Giant Jane developed a friendship with James Dean. In the DVD special features she tells the story that Dean had a favorite pink cowboy shirt he wore all the time. He never let it go the laundry for fear it would be lost like the other shirts he had. Withers convinced him to let her wash it for him. She did this often and when he left to go to the race he gave her his shirt to wash and have ready for him when he came back. James Dean died that day in the fateful fatal car wreck in California. Withers still keeps his shirt and the fond memories of him.

By the mid-1960s, Withers gained fame again as “Josephine the Plumber,” a character in a long-running and popular series of television commercials for Comet cleanser, and the veteran TV-ad pitchwoman’s beloved character lasted into the 1970s.

A December 15, 2008 Advertising Age article about Flo, the Progressive Insurance TV commercial character played by Stephanie Courtney, said that Flo, “… is a weirdly sincere, post-modern Josephine the Plumber who just really wants to help. She has: The brand is flourishing.”


speaking of which, they should do one commercial with perky Flo the insurance lady wearing a dress:

It would be sensational!


Elisabeth Moss

(born July 24, 1982) is an American actress.
