Geneviève Bujold in ‘Alex and the Gypsy’ 1975

Geneviève Bujold. ‘Alex and the Gypsy’ takes a strange, disjointed story and tells it with enough style that the movie sometimes works in spite of itself. It’s so uncertain of its own intentions that we never do discover quite what its two central characters feel about each other, but in the midst of this mess there are five or six scenes that are really fine. And there’s some spirited acting, too, by Jack Lemmon as a rumpled bailbondsman, and Geneviève Bujold as, of all things, a gypsy. Roger Ebert.

Did Edward Durston kill Carol Wayne and Art Linkletter’s daughter?

If you watched the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson during the Seventies, you may remember sexy Carol Wayne. She was the big-busted, bubbly “Matinee Lady” of the ‘Tea Time Movies with Art Fern’ sketches that began in 1971 and stayed popular throughout the decade.

Carol Wayne was also a frequent guest on game shows like Celebrity Sweepstakes and The Hollywood Squares, she also made quite a bit of money doing personal appearances.

She had the ability to make the most innocent remark seem like a dirty joke with her little girl voice, wide “innocent” eyes and ultra-ample bosom. It was often joked that Carol Wayne would never drown with those large breasts of hers – but ironically that’s exactly how she did die.

To this day, the exact circumstances leading up to her death in 1985 remain a mystery. Oregon Herald.

In addition to her lacklustre career, her personal life was also turbulent. She was briefly married to the actor Kenneth Ives and then again to another actor, Andrew Knox, in a union that lasted merely months. On 16th November 1980, police were called to Imogen’s home in Wimbledon by Suzanna Leigh, her friend and fellow actress with whom she had been due to go on holiday that very morning. Imogen was found dead, her plane tickets in her hand and the cause of death an overdose of Tuinals. Andrew Knox, her former husband, would eventually take his own life in a similar manner.

Kathy Kersh: star of The Gemini Affair (1973). “The real surprise was in how wonderful Kathy Kersh was.  She had been married at one point to Vince Edwards, who had played “Ben Casey” on television.    It was a hard shoot.  We didn’t have a lot of money.  We shot it all in two weeks.  The two girls rehearsed though, for about three weeks prior to the start of shooting.  And, of course, Marta Kristen (Lost In Space) was a hell of a good actress.” – Director Matt Cimber via TV Store Online.
