Here is Tinker Bell, desperately trying to extricate herself from the keyhole of the drawer she was shut into in the Disney version of "Peter Pan."
(Larken sent me that animation, bless her very much and many love pats!)
Now, imagine that scene twenty-two feet tall and fifty-two feet wide, and the impact it had upon fourteen-year old Wolfie in the darkened movie theatre! I was transfixed, mesmerized, completely captivated, then and forever in love with that imp!
Tink has truckloads of personality and attitude, and I discovered that a lot of that was the talent of the spritely young actress-dancer that Mr. Disney, his directors and animators hired to model Tinker Bell-- Margaret Kerry!
Margaret has lots of these pictures at her website, "Tinker Bell Talks!"
(I've wondered if she actually performed that little booty dance, and if they still have those clips.)
But look what Margaret also shares on her website--!
That was among the publicity pictures-- and Margaret says it was the most popular publicity picture!-- for one of the first big TV family sitcoms, "The Charlie Ruggles Show," starring Charlie Ruggles as Daddy Charlie Ruggles, and Margaret Kerry as his naughty college-aged daughter!
Or, maybe after this, she wasn't naughty enough to get spanked on TV. Drat!!
Some brides have been, y'know.
(And yes, I know that was only a publicity shot, too! I watched the whole movie waiting for it! Drat again!)
(By the way, if you can't remember seeing Charlie Ruggles before, you have if you've seen Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn in "Bringing Up Baby!" And if you haven't seen that, you have a lack to address!)
Anyhow, I thought it was delightful that the model for the pixie so many would love to lovingly spank actually got some loving spanks herself! (Or we can pretend so!)
