Tuesday Weld Early Bio:

Brought up in a cold-water flat in New York--her father died when she was three and she began modeling at five.

She and her mother, Aileen, hit Hollywood in August, 1957, with the help of agent Dick Clayton, who had seen her on a television show in New York. In charge of her career, she gets a small part in a 20th Century Fox movie--She plays the teenage baby sitter in "Rally round the Flag, Boys!".

A contract with 20th provides her first security. A year later at the age of 15 she stars in the TV sitcom, "The Many loves of Dobie Gillis."

Early Movies / Films:

Movies: Rock, Rock, Rock!(1956); Rally Round the Flag, Boys!(1958); The Five Pennies (1959); Sex Kittens Go to College (1960); Because They're Young (1960); Beauty and The Robot (1960); High Time (1960); Bachelor Flat (1961); Return to Peyton Place (1961); Wild in the Country (1961); Soldier in the Rain (1963); I'll Take Sweden (1965); The Cincinnati Kid (1965); Lord Love a Duck (1966).

Note:  Return to Peyton Place is another best Tuesday Weld movie!

Krebs (beatnik); Sheila James - Zelda Gilroy; Frank Faylen - Herbert Gillis (the father); Florida Friebus - Winifred Gillis (Winnie); Warren Beatty - Milton Armitage (the rich kid).

Note:   Tuesday Weld is a cast member on "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" for only a few months but her character Thalia is remembered as an intregal part of the show (1959-1960).

The Warren Beatty character of Milton, leaves the cast(1959-1960).

Tuesday Weld returns to the show 2 years later(1962) for a return, guest appearance as her character Thalia Menninger.

** Teenagers watch the TV show; it's different, it's about them --- Teenagers!   Teens listen to Maynard, Dobie, Zelda and Thalia and learn those cool, hip words to try at school the next day - "like way out, man," "crazy pop,"hey cat," daddy-o," "bug me," "wow"!
