From ‘West Side Story’ to a wild winter story

WILD WILD WINTER:8X10 ORIGINAL PHOTO AA9361Suzie Kaye (1941 – 2008). Tom Lisanti: “Either as a sultry brunette or dippy blonde, Suzie Kaye was a talented actress/singer/dancer who made her mark in ‘60s drive-in movies. … As a brunette she went on to play small roles in a few more films including Tammy and the Doctor (1963) with Sandra Dee and the beach-party-in-the-snow Wild Wild Winter (1966) with Gary Clarke and Chris Noel.  Feeling her career needed a boost, Kaye dyed her hair blonde. This seemed to suit her perky personality better, as she went on to work in a string of teenage comedies and musicals including Clambake (1967) with Elvis Presley; It’s a Bikini World (1967) with Tommy Kirk and Deborah Walley; and C’mon, Let’s Live a Little (1967) with Bobby Vee and Jackie DeShannon.” BUY HIS BOOK: Drive-In Dream Girls: A Galaxy of B-Movie Starlets of the Sixties.
