    More than half the board is going who??

    How many Mousketeers are still kicking and how many are in the Great Beyond?

    I think much of the board, even those who aren't dinosaurs, knows who she is because of Stand By Me.
  4. Sounds like a reason to be glad the end finally came.
    Report I saw said she had been in a coma for several years due to MS complications.

    Frankie and Annette.

    From the link

    Not sure why they had to throw "largely because of her breasts" in there.

    And not sure that today's fans of Britney, Justin and Ryan will ever grasp how big Annette was in the 50s and early 60s. Her name in a movie cast guaranteed success.

    Agreed. Yeah, it's TMZ, but still ...

    Hard to believe she was only 70. RIP. Only ever saw those originals as repeats, but they were great.

    And Back to the Beach. That movie was always on in the 80s.

    I remember her mostly from the beach party movies in the '60s but, yes, as a Mousketeer, too.

    Is there a movie star or performer today, the same magnitude of Annette was in the late 50's- early 60's, whose breasts we haven't seen?

    In her prime, she had an awe inspiring rack.
