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

    Hello Sherry,

    Thank you so much for calling me tonight to see if I had received my autographed photo. I’m still walking around in a daze…I can’t believe I had Sherry Jackson on the phone. You’re a class act. I will always be a big fan.

    Sincerely,
    Harold Tucker

    Hello Sherry,

    I feel like I’m becoming a nuisance. I’m so looking forward to your autographed photo, I’m saddened when it’s not in the mail box. I’m always afraid it got lost in the mail. (Like that’s never happened…) The mail has lost several of my things over the years. I hope you’re well. You’re still a beauty.

    Thanks,
    Harold Tucker
    (Still a big fan)

    Dear Sherry :-)
    How’s it going? I hope that you are doing well and that rest and relaxation helped :-) that you are back in good shape, and no more misfortunes.
    I’m also writing you back to see if you did manage to mail out my last order? It has been just a bit over a month and I’m excited for it to arrive. Can’t wait to receive it.
    Wishing you well,

    Hey Sherry,

    I recently came across the 1st half on You Tube of “The Lieutenant” episode you were cast in-but unfortunately not the 2nd half! However, there was a scene where you were sitting in a convertible while visiting with Gary Lockwood out in front of a funeral parlor…The car was definitely a 1953 or ’54 Plymouth. As my family had two of those cars (a brown Cranbrook club coupe and one sky-blue with white top Cambridge coupe) when I was growing up, there’s no mistaking that distinctive ’53/’54 Plymouth dashboard, curved one-piece windshield-plus those “swing-out, pull-type” outer door handles! Were you featured driving the rag-top around set in the 2nd half of that episode? I’m going to surf the web-maybe I can find the 2nd half…. ;^) I could tell you a lot of stories about what happened to both cars over the years…Sometimes I wonder how I survived to adulthood while riding in one of them one day…LOL!

    In the fall of 1953, my Grandfather Mitchell bought the brown Cranbrook coupe brand-new for my father for the start of his junior year of college at Oklahoma State University. (Dad broke that thing in driving it 100 MPH from Bartlesville to Stillwater and back on weekends!) Granddad paid around 1700 cash for it at the Chrysler dealership in downtown Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The ’53 blue & white Cambridge coupe Granddad bought used in the early 1960′s from a guy in the “Oak Park” section of Bartlesville for 40 dollars cash. It was slightly different than Dad’s Cranbrook. It had a 3-piece back glass, and no “center-post” or window-frames on the doors….Neither car had a radio in them, so my Uncle Jay Mitchell installed salvaged Plymouth factory AM radios in both cars over the years-plus a “HAM” radio in the Cambridge coupe-complete with a huge “whip” antenna…Remember when “HAM” radios were popular, Sherry?

    Respectfully yours,
    Jim

    Hi Sherry,

    Weren’t you in one episode of “Mannix”? I watched that show religiously as a kid-could have sworn you had done an episode…(Although I admit-I couldn’t find it posted on your IMDB page.) ;^)

    Respectfully yours,
    Jim

    Dear Sherry,
    Any memories to share of working with Richard Jaeckel on “77 Sunset Strip”? The two of you made a very cute couple in that episode. Thank you.

    Sherry,
    While I’m thinking about it, did you know Denny Miller, who died just a few weeks ago? In 2012 he visited us at the college where I work, and I thought he was one of the nicest, most elegant men I’ve ever met. Kept in touch with him and his wife via email, and was so sad to hear of his passing. Just thought perhaps your paths had crossed.

      Sherry did a ‘Wagon Train’ episode w/ Denny Miller. It used to be on Youtube, but I think it was removed.

    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

    Dear Sherry :-)

    How are you? Hope all is good and you are doing well health-wise.

    i was also wondering if you had time to mail out my recent order :-)

    Always wishing you well.

      Dear Tom,

      You and the others will be sent out by Friday.I still am not my usual self! I went to the Courts autograph show and I fell very hard! I told everyone I was just fine but the next day I had several Big bruises. My best friend Brenda was with me and I feel she was very scared! THEN…. I choked on a hamburger! In retrospect what I needed was the Heimlich maneuver!

      Thank you for your well wishes I sure need them!!!

      Love and Light,

      Sherry

        Dear Sherry ,

        I am so sorry to hear all of that.
        That is some bad luck :( . The last of it I hope. Please be carefull. Sending you positive energy and happy thoughts :) .
        No worries about mailing everything out on Friday. Your health and well-being are more important.

        Maybe a bit of rest and relaxation will help.

        Wishing you well
