For over twenty years, the expressive Patty Duke faced down satanic cults, nefarious home wreckers, monstrous matrons and ferociously uncontrollable domiciles in such television films as She Waits, Amityville: The Evil Escapes, The Babysitter, Look What’s Happened to Rosemary’s Baby and countless other terror saturated vehicles.
But, alas, as with so many other fair maidens, it is the uncertainties of love that seemed to most plague the divine Duke. Her 60s single, Don’t Just Stand There, released when she was a teen starring on The Patty Duke Show, chronicles her frustrations over a mate who just can’t seem to commit…although, the way this ginger smoked wonder is able to multi-track her voice while singing on national television is probably just as scary as it is wondrous…and might have had something to do with frightening off any potential dates.
Food for thought…
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
