I had the auburn haired Chrissy doll whose hair grew. She lost most of it in an incense fire. Don't ask

Just saw her on the Twilight Zone where she is a mannequin, but has forgotten that until she visits her home department store and the other mannequins remind her. Great one!

She was my first crush (okay, I was 6 when Honey West was on TV). She'll be missed.

And for clarification, Honor Blackman played Miss Galore, not Anne Francis

I had to see the pic in that NYT article to remember who she was. Yes, she was a great actress.

I remember that one. Some Twilight Zone episodes are definitely memorable and stick with you.

I was working at the catering company my cousin books for. One party, the decorators used a whole bunch of mannequins. At the end of the night, I saw a guy alone, loading them into the back of his van, in the dark.

No WAY would you get me into a van full of mannequins, driving around in the dark! I'd be afraid of hearing whispering or moving, even when stopped at a traffic light!

Duh, of course. I bet they got confused with each other all the time...so gorgeous.

Michael Rennie was ill
The Day the Earth Stood Still
But he told us
Where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there
In silver underwear
Claude Rains was The Invisible Man
Well then something went wrong
Both Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
And at a deadly pace
It came from Outer Space
And this is how the message ran...
Like
A
Science Fiction
Double Feature
Dr X
Will build a Creature
See androids fighting
Brad and Janet
Anne Francis
in Forbidden Planet
Wo oh oh oh oh oh oh
At the late night, double feature
picture show.
