one of a kind
actress paula prentiss is as genuine as it gets. her performance as a 'stepford' wife is terrific. when she 'cracks' it is mind bending to this day. she has been married to actor richard benjamin since 1961! these two surely owned some of the seventies and i cherish benjamin's protrayal as the husband in 'diary of a mad housewife' in which he is beyond brilliant. his exclamation, 'TINA!!!!' led to the longest lasting nickname for my dog 'kareem.'
paula was shiny, a bit loopy, and timelessly slim. i have a feeling singer chrissie hynde has a fondness for her.
