Need a New Read? Barbara Feldon’s Book “Getting Smarter”

Just finished it and it moves pretty quickly. In a nutshell, she was a Pittsburgh baby, moved to New York, met, screwed and married a con artist who then screwed her over.

“Get Smart” happened, she got divorced, shacked up with one of the show’s producers and spent most of the 70s depressed.

Not a funny lady on paper but it’s a breezy read. Also, she’s nearly 90 and looks amazing.

For early 60s men this perhaps was the most popular commercial ever that didn't involve beer

Her look was the quintessential early 70s look to me when I was a kid. My mom’s BFF looked a lot like Barbara Feldon, so no doubt that played into it.

Will she live to be 99?
