Debbie Watson (1949 – ) in The Cool Ones (1967).

TCM: Debbie Watson, in a role intended for Nancy Sinatra, plays Hallie Rogers, an overzealous, aspiring singer who works as a go-go dancer on the (fictional) TV show, Whizbam

The film is not rock ‘n roll but an unpalatable marriage of a Las Vegas lounge act with a Broadway musical. In fact, “This Town,” one of the showcased songs in The Cool Ones, was recorded by both Frank Sinatra and his daughter Nancy (on her 1967 TV special, Movin’ with Nancy).

On another level The Cool Ones is an invaluable time capsule which documents Los Angeles and Palm Springs as those places looked in 1967. Debbie Watson has a changing wardrobe of go-go boots, Carnaby Caps and skirts with big white belts. Watson and her co-star Gil Peterson don’t seem to be aware of how ridiculous their roles are, lending their performances some amateurish innocence; it doesn’t make their acting any better, but it adds to the fun.

1949-debbie_watson_tammy_1965

Debbie Watson starred in Tammy – 26 color half-hour episodes on ABC from 17 Sep 1965 to 11 March 1966. Tammy and the Millionaire (1967) is a movie edited from the first four Tammy TV episodes and includes all the main TV cast except Cletus Tarleton.

When Tammy is hired as secretary to millionaire John Brent, she arouses the anger of Lavinia Tate, who hoped that her daughter Gloria would get the position and be able to win the affection of Brent’s collegiate son, Steven. While home from school, Steven is attracted to Tammy, and the efforts of Gloria and her mother to discredit the young girl only succeed in bringing the couple closer together. Mrs. Tate attempts to have Tammy’s home taken away from her because of unpaid taxes, but Tammy’s Grandpa and Uncle Lucius find an ancient deed which establishes their ownership of much of the local property. Although they are anxious to take advantage of the situation, Tammy makes them promise to leave the Tates alone. After Mr. Brent has anonymously paid the back taxes, Tammy’s relatives crash a party and reduce it to a shambles. Later, all is forgiven, and Tammy ends up in Steven’s arms. TCM.

Madeline Smith (born 1949): “I messed up my studies and intended to take a ‘60s version of a ‘gap year’. Suddenly I was ‘spotted’ in the Kings Road and Kensington where I was working at the Biba clothes shop.
