Jocelyn Lane --> End of the Great Girl Drought (1964)

Fri Jun 25, 2010 8:29 am

Just as starlet Jocelyn Lane was beginning her work on "Tickle Me" ...

.. it seems she was poised to become Hollywood's new "IT" girl, taking the lead in a Life magazine spread :

Life - Oct 2, 1964

"Pam Merritt" was going to be a star!

Instead, Lane worked sporadically until 1971, marrying Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg of Marbella, Spain in Las Vegas a few years later.

It's a crazy world, man.

Thanks for posting this Dr.Carpenter

She was beautiful but wasn't that good of an actress

I think Ann Margret and Carol Lynley could act better than her

Thanks doc, background information is always appreciated.
Was it the Great Drought of Girls or the Drought of Great Girls?

Jolly good. The Doc has discovered that Life Magazine issues are freely available on Google Books..

Stand by for more "discoveries" for those too lazy to do their own research

Is Playboy next? :D I just want to read the articles, honestly I do. :!: :wink:

To be honest though, I'm not too fond of Google Books in one regard. I find it too damn difficult to enlarge articles.

I much prefer the CD-ROM set that came out for Rolling Stone magazine. Much easier to look up specific articles.

KiwiAlan, since when is the Internet not a research tool. Unless you're one of those people who bought a bomb shelter back in the late '50s- early '60s and you're still in it for the last 50 odd years. What college or university nowadays doesn't have internet access, where a lot of research is done? Maybe that research done at one of those universities will find a cure for what possibly could kill you. Ah, screw it. Let him croak, cause we didn't need internet access.

Gentlemen, the 'I would' line just doesn't have the same impact when delivered by someone other than the line's orignator, Colin B. Come up with your own material.

I'd drink Jocelyn Lane's shoe sweat.

Why not let others enjoy the things he posts? Or post some interesting topics yourself?

I would love to see some of the pics of the Tunzi's "Tickle Me". Wasnt' there a book too about Tickle me that he or someone did....I'l like to browse it....too bad his books can't be readily found in book stores in the US.....I might actually buy some if I could see them.

Addall.com or ebay is a great way to find books. I know I have seen Tickle Me for sale recently on ebay I think.
