Deborah Walley and John Ashley: a real life couple playing a squabbling couple in Beach Blanket Bingo (1965).


Deborah’s last major film was the family-classic, Benji (1974). She then retired to spend more time with her three sons. “I quit acting because… I was never home, and I thought they’d grow up and I wouldn’t even remember what their names were.”

Robert Vaughn joined The A-Team (TV 1985) at the request of an old friend:

“The guy that produced The A-Team, John Ashley, was an actor. We were both young actors in our twenties when we came to Hollywood . . . He remembered me from our early days.”

(For a time, John Ashley was married to Deborah Walley, with whom he appeared in the Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello Beach Party movies.)
