When I lived in Indonesia briefly in the late 60s,I shared a double desk in 6th grade at the International School with the daughter of Eva Bartok and Frank Sinatra thru an affair.Bartok was there following her guru and for health reasons..Deanna was very charming and friendly,older for her age.She looked alot like the other sinatra girls..We became real good buds..She brought a book portfolio of her mom's films to school once and we fliped thru it at the desk..I was thrilled to see she had done a Mario Bava film,whos name i only knew from monster magazines..I loaned her a Savoy Brown LP..One Step Further..She wasn't aloud out to do alot of stuff with the other kids..so she appreciated anything cool from the outside world ..
A friend of mine spent decades trying to get her mother to say who her father was. She kept telling her he was nothing special... finally she told her and my friend screamed "You mean it's not JFK?" Her mother just yelled back, "are you insane? How on earth would I have gotten JFK to fuck me?"
Gary Lewis said his Mom was well aware of husband Jerry's philandering. She joked about his gifts: "The bigger the jewelry, the worse he's been."
Vincent, we MUST make another film, if only to use that line. PZ, Gracie Allen said something similar about Burns: "I wish George would cheat on me again, I need a new crystal bowl."
I wish I could be Dean Martin's secret son.
Christopher, did Deanna ever get to meet her dad (or did you just not ask?)Keith ... I know! Imagine.
I am convinced I am the unholy offspring of Beatrice Lillie and Clifton Webb.
Donna...at the time it was kept secret that Deana was the daughter of Sinatra..I've seen articles on the Web that she later tried to meet with him..But he and his family didn't want anything to do with her..Bartok was still married to Curt Jurgens when I knew them and Deana used that last name..I didn't know anything about the Sinatra stuff then..I was too in awe of her pretty Ma,who attended school functions wearing her big Shades..but friendly and down to earth..
When I was a manager at the comic book store, Moe Howard's grand daughter was a big comic book fan, she was really nicest kid. She adored her grandfather but never really understood what a big star he was!
maybe not a big star..but surely an Icon!Why the 3 headed Stooge image at the opening of each short comedy is certainly more famous than Mt. Rushmore.. :o)
