Shelley was born in Santa Monica in 1944....so she is actually 72!
For some of us, Shelley Fabares was "Mary", the teen daughter" in the very popular "The Donna Reed Show" of the 1960s. (You can still see the reruns and it was an entertaining series)
More recently, she was Christine in "The coach", the funny TV comedy of a few years ago.
Between "Donna Reed" and "The coach", Shelley played different roles on TV and even made 3 movies with Elvis.
She also recorded "Johnny Angel", one of the biggest hits of the pre-Beatles era.
It became one of the best selling "teen girl loves high school boy" songs of pop music history:
