And she looked as ravishing as I remembered her on Gilligan’s Island. But what exactly is she doing with that blue thing? And does anyone know what she’s up to these days?
This is the cover of a 26 Sept 1961 issue of Ciné Monde, in which she apparently said (and please excuse the rough translation), “I don’t want to be a doll of flesh.” Less than three years later she became Ginger, and about a half dozen years after that my first real crush.
I don’t want to become a flesh doll, either. So after a bit of wine shopping in the morning and one last light French lunch in the afternoon, I’ll be heading back home tomorrow evening where a pile of work awaits. Look for a few stories, a handful of photo essays and short video pieces from both Normandy and Paris over the next several weeks.
