How to Stuff a Wild Bouffant


On the occasion of the release of her movie Back to the Beach (1987), Annette Funicello recalled her original role as Dee Dee in Beach Blanket Bingo (1965). She noted: “Oh my God. When I look at those movies now and see my hair….It never moved. The wind would blow and every hair stayed in place. Even when I’d go into the water, my hair never got wet. We’re not talking real life here.”

  2. What was the question, Margaret?

  3. I never understood why DeeDee hung around Frankie. I'd be all over Jody McCrea like white on rice...

  4. her torpedoes never moved either.

  5. LOL, Norma! She wore, "sand-stuffed bras."

    MJ, if you hadn't been sleeping, snoring, and drooling all over your switch in class, you'd know the question.
