Patty Duke, Actress

Patty Duke, Actress

Patty Duke, who had starred achieved fame in the film "The Helen Keller Story," was also the star of the Patty Duke Show during the mid-60s. Capitalizing on her t.v. show success, she made the movie "Billie," in which she played a girl on the boys' track team. Here she waits for a baton hand-off. She's also about to leave the boys eating her dust. The movie was filmed at my high school, University High, and half of the extras on the film were male students (including myself and of course I brought along my Rolleicord IV camera) on the track team. Back then, the idea of a girl trackster was a novelty. The girls at our high school played, if they played sports at all, on the field hockey team.
