Patty Duke. RIP

December 14, 1946 – March 29, 2016

She was the youngest actress to win an OSCAR (1963) for her role of Hellen Keller, just 16 years old at the time.  A stunning performance, even by today’s standards.  But what I most remember Patty Duke for was her popular program (1963-1966) The Patty Duke Show.

I remember falling in love with her!  The first of many heartaches…but you NEVER forget your first!  Patty Duke was probably the reason why I always had a thing for older women later in life (I was 8 at the time!)

RIP
