Disney channel in the 80's or 90's had an interview with her that aired after she had been diagnosed with MS. She said she did the interview because she had balance problems and she did not want people thinking she was drunk.
She made references to the modern day Beach Blanket movie where she and Frankie were married with college age kids.

She mentioned how in the promos she and Frankie did a show at WDW where she stumbled and he had to catch her. She did not want the Disney image tarnished.

She talked about how it was Walt that encouraged her to keep her last name professionally and be proud of it, Walt encouraged her that if she did the Beach Blanket movies to wear a one piece to keep the mystery (and the Disney image) I wear a one piece in their honor. Aways have.

She showed her mouse ears that were kept under glass.

I think the last movie she made may have been for Disney channel- it was about a woman that one the lottery. sweepstakes etc. She kept winning and the taxes on the winnings made them poor. The family was poor before and there was a car race involved that dealt with limited gas, etc.

Thanks Annette for being a part of my childhood.
