LEGGY, LOVELY...AND LETHAL ON THE TRACK!


That's our Beat-empowered heroine!  Patty Duke relaxes on the set during the filming of Billie's first major run against the male athletes of Harding High.  Patty's decked out in a green top for the only time in the film, and it compliments the equally pleasing powder-blue sweat shirt and Harding track suit she usually runs around in.

BEAT GIRL!

Anna found time during the shooting of BILLIE to demonstrate a different kind of Beat.  The shoot was a fast one, with creative personnel from "The Patty Duke Show" easily adapting their skills from small screen to large (very large; anamorphic Panavision, along with Technicolor).

COACHED BY RAFER!

Famed Olympian athlete Rafer Johnson helped Anna through some difficult hurdles as she prepared for her strenuous role as BILLIE in '65.
