Welcome!

 

Hello Everyone!

I am very excited to share with you the history of my career. I plan on adding LOTS of trivia and answering your questions. I did not realize there was so much content around until my fans made me aware, and thanks to the Internet, this is now possible. 

When I was on the “Make Room for Daddy Show,” i.e. “The Danny Thomas Show,” I received bags and bags of fan mail.  Besides working, attending school, and studying my lines, on Saturdays I spent all day personalizing my answers to each letter and posting them. Because that left little time for anything else, I became resentful….Eventually, we hired a teenage girl to help me for it became overwhelming. Now that I am MUCH older, I realize how important it is to appreciate my fans and am going to make up for lost time!!! I loved my fans but my very strict mother made things a “have” to,  not a “want” to. Now I really WANT to!!!! So I am looking forward to this adventure and want this site to be fun and interesting and at times funny . So feel free to ask away…..

Sincerely, (that was my closing on my early fan letters but I misspelled “Sincerly” for many early autographs) lol…Now I prefer “Health, Love and Light. ” Maturation is enlightening…

 

XOXOXO

    Dear Sherry,
    What terrific memories. I couldn’t help but laugh at the one about Flynn giving you a nickel and telling you to call him when you were 18. How utterly Errol Flynn-like that was! I occasionally post things to an Errol Flynn blog for his fans – Would you mind if I shared these memories with the blog?

    Yes, what a shame about Sean. There’s no telling what he could have done had he lived.

    As for “Hello God:” If I learn anything about its restoration, I will certainly keep you posted. I read that there were 7 cannisters of film, and two of them were completely deteriorated. But that leaves 5, which would still make pretty interesting viewing. Maybe if Eastman gets the film restored, they could have a showing and you could be the guest of honor!!

    Hello Sherry,

    I have always been a big fan. Ever since ‘Star Trek’ and ‘The Wild Wild West’. I ordered an autographed photo on Sept. 11. How long does it usually take to receive it? I’m really looking forward to it. Take care.

    Hi, Sherry,
    I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember – Many thanks for all your good work.
    One question for you. Although I am familiar with much of your film and television work, I was surprised to see that you had been in the Errol Flynn movie, “Hello God.” This film is something of a rarity because Flynn destroyed (or thought he destroyed) the negative. I read where a partial negative has been found and is being restored by the Eastman company.

    My question: Do you have any memories of making this movie? I know you would have been quite young, but do you remember Mr. Flynn or the movie?

    Thanks again for everything, Sherry. Best of luck to you!

      Dear Charles,

      Wow….”Hello God” I remember the interview and I remember Flynn! He gave me a nickel and told me to call him when I was 18!!

      Let me know if any of it is ever released. Some where in the stacks of memorbellia in my storage unit, there is a still photo on the set with Flynn and me and the camera etc.

      When I was in my 20′s I dated Sean Flynn. He taught me how to shoot a 45, the recoil was so big I thought I had blown off the top of my head!!! What a shame he died in Vietnam.
      He was very handsome and very sweet.

      Love and light,

      Sherry
