I was lucky to appear on her show(Fun with Fran) to celebrate my birthday in the fifties. I remember the cake that magically appeared out of the fake oven completely cooked. I am 67 and had no idea what she went on to do. I feel fortunate having been one pebble in all the boulders of her life.
Thank you for providing the link for more information.
