    That's ashamed, I could still picture her as a young engaging teenage girl. May she R.I.P.

    Robert, for millions of people, she'll be forever youthful. She was the very image of the American teenage girl.

    the idealized all American teenager.
    sad news.
    for the longest time i had assumed she was already dead, you just never saw her or heard anything about her.
    even with all the press for Beyond The Sea the last couple months, you didn't see her.

    i know this sounds crass and selfish, but i'm really disappointed that more of her work isn't available on dvd- and the seminal work that is (Gidget) is so poorly presented by its studio that its completely worthless.
    i hope Universal can bust out a Tammy franchise this year, and WB, A Summer Place.
    i have no clue who owns Take Her She's Mine or Portrait in Black, but it would be nice to see those as well.

    Wow, this is really sad news. I grew up with Sandra Dee as a teen idol to my generation. To me, she and Yvette Mimieux were the hotties we all lusted after in our teens. The world will miss you "Gidget."[​IMG]

    This one really caught me off guard. I recently watched "Imitation of Life", and she was absolutely magnetic on screen. I honestly can't say that I've seen any of her other movies in their entirety.

    She certainly was the polar opposite of Hunter S. Thompson.

    R.I.P.
