Dear Ilona,
Thanks a lot for your letter and the postcard that you snt me. The letter was very enjoyale and the postcard will be added to my collection. I would appreciate it if you snet me some postcards of the area around Detroit.
I never liked going to show until just recently. Isn’t that funny? But now I’m bitten by the “show bug” and really love seeing them. You see, living in Bernon, you only have 1 channel on T.V., 1 theatre and 1 drive-in. I didn’t see any of the shows you saw exept “Parent Trap”. Mom saw”The Miracle Worker” though. I enjoy Walt Disney’s movies. The ones that I’ve seen are:
“Toby Tyler”- Kevin Corcoran
“Pollyanna” – Haley Mills.
“Third Man on the Mountain” – James MacArthur.
“101 Dalmations”
“Swiss Family robinson” – John Mills, tommy Kirk, Jim MacArthur,Kevin Corcoran.
“The Absent-minded Professor” – Fred MacMurray , Tommy Kirk.
:Sonn of Flubber”-
“Babes in Toyland” – Tommy Sands, Annette.
“Savage Sam” – Tommy Kirk, Kevin Corcoran.
Two days ago I saw “Spencers Mountain”, staring Jim MacArthur, Henry fonda, Maureen O’hara. But that wasn’t on of Walt Dianey’s. I’m looking forward to seeing Summer Magic with Layley Mills. I also can’t wait till Dick Chamberlain stars in Twilight of Homour!! I guess you heard that I simply can’t get him out of my head! I’m not nuts about him, I’m serious! Mon’s getting real worried! I’m glad you said Kildare was better than Casey! I like Ben Casy (the program) too; but I LOVE Jim Kildare! (I can’t spell very well can I)? It’s my first year of typing. Please tell me what you like about Dick, if you do. I love to get people’s opinions on him.
Yes I have many pennants. I put some of them on the wals of my room. These are the places I have received pennants from:
In Alberta: Jasper Park & Banff’s Gondola lift.
In California: Los Angeles, Disneyland & Trees of Mystery & Hollywood! (wow)!
In washington: Spokane, The Dry Falls & Grand Coulee Dam.
In Arizona: The Meteor Crater
In Colorado: Glenwood Springs.
That’s about all!
Thank you very much for offering me some stamps from Germany! I’d love to have a few. I wish I could write in some German for you. I can speak quite a bit, but writing is a different matter.
What are your favorite T.V. shows? Even though we only have 1 channel here I still have my favorites. They are as follows: 1. Dr. KILDARE. 2. Patty Duke Show. 3. Ben Casey. 4. Bonanza. 5. Reach for the Top. 6. You Asked For It. 7. Ed Sullivan. 8. Password. 9. Misterogers (har har!) 10. Stump the Stars.
Sorry this is such a short letter, (it took me about 2 hours to type it aming billions of mistakes).
‘Bye for now; hope to har from you soon!
Best wishes &
All my love,
P.S. – I hope your family are all well. Give my greetings to TEDDY!
