Happy Birthday Sally!
I have watched her and loved her for YEARS. Since "Gidget" and "The Flying Nun", I've followed her performances on through her tour de force as "Sybil", and then to her Oscar-winning roles in "Norma Rae" and "Places In The Heart"; she has been no less than fabulous. I bought this Flying Nun LP on ebay. My favorite song that she sang on the show wasn't included, unfortunately.
This movie, "Maybe I'll Come Home In The Spring" was an ABC Movie Of The Week in 1971. Jackie Cooper and Eleanor Parker played her parents. I LOVED those movies - I remember so many of them- they were great. I wish I could find a few more of my favorites on DVD. I was very happy when I found this one!
And now I am thoroughly enjoying her in "Brothers And Sisters" on ABC. It's a great show- do you watch it, too?
I hope this wonderful and talented lady has a very Happy Birthday, indeed!
