    More Details Hide Details The FBI determined the threats came from a patient at the Agnews Developmental Center, a mental hospital in San Jose, California. Apparently the patient could not bear to see DiMaggio with anyone other than Marilyn Monroe, who died in 1962. http://www.flickr.com/photos/gitwithit/2393734552/
  • TWENTIES
  • 1957
    Age 23
    She had worked in many Westerns in the late 1950s, usually in the role of the sheriff's daughter, including an appearance on Gunsmoke in 1957 (the episode entitled: Innocent Broad).
    More Details Hide Details She also appeared in Duel at Sundown, a particularly famous episode of Maverick with James Garner, featuring Clint Eastwood as a trigger-happy villain. Her image branched out in the 1960s, helped by House of Usher and a role on the Boris Karloff-hosted TV series Thriller that same year entitled 'Girl With A Secret'. Even her Western parts became "darker". After a rough love scene in Bonanza in which she cut her lip, the cast presented her with an award for 'Best Slapper in a Filmed Series'. Fahey's most sustained television work was a starring role in the one-season (1961-62) series, Father of the Bride. The series was based upon a film of the same name starring Elizabeth Taylor. Fahey likely got the role, because as one newspaper reviewer pointed out, she "looks enough like Liz Taylor to be her sister". Fahey was not flattered by the comparison, however, telling one interviewer "the fact that I'm supposed to look like Elizabeth Whats-Her-Name had nothing to do with my getting part, because we don't really look alike I don't think, we just happen to have the same colorings." Fahey wanted to be released from the show even before it came up for renewal, reportedly feeling too much emphasis was being placed on the "father" character and not enough on her "bride"
