Why do I keep getting these songs stuck in my head? Well this time I know where it came from. My new friend Tammy and her blog are to blame. Yes, in the past few days since discovering another kindred spirit, Tammy's In Love keeps running through my mind. So, let's all sing along...
That was great! I knew you'd remember the words.
Debbie has her own website with lots of information on her life and career. Guess what song you'll hear when you click Debbie's site. Oh, yes, out of all of Debbie's work, it's Tammy that greets you there. Don't be surprised if Debbie shows up here on my blog another time.
In 1961, Sandra Dee starred with John Gavin in Tammy Tell Me True.
Sandra has a fan website that doesn't seem to be updated but still has quite a bit of information.
And Sandra Dee returned in 1963 with Peter Fonda in Tammy and the Doctor. This time Sandra performs Tammy's In Love.
I have to wonder if Tammy's dialog was based on a study of river people or did some Hollywood writer make it up.
All three movies are great fun. Hubby bought me the DVD set and he enjoys watching them with me.
Now I don't remember seeing this when I was a kid but they made 26 half-hour episodes of Tammy for TV in 1965-1966. Here's a little peek.
In 1967 the 4th Tammy movie, Tammy and the Millionaire was released. It starred the same cast from the TV show. This movie has one of my favorite Tammy quotes: "Looks is a heap more important than brains because most men can see a lot better than they can think."
So, do you have a favorite Tammy? ♥
