when i brought a copy of patty duke's autobiography up to the counter in a bookstore the guy working smiled and said, 'the dukester!' i nearly fell down laughing.
i always liked patty duke. her t.v. show was great and her turn as 'neely' in 'valley of the dolls' is legendary. she wound up making lots of made for t.v films which could only be better as a result of her being in them. she went through way too much dark times due to depression but lived to write about it. today 'the dukester' turns 65.
