Malone’s film career began in the mid 1940s, and in her early years she played small roles, mainly in B-movies. After a decade in films, she became more popular as a
glamor image, particularly after her performance in Written on the Wind (1956),
which won her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her film career
peaked by the beginning of the 1960s, and she achieved later success with her
television role as Constance MacKenzie on Peyton Place on ABC-TV from 1964
to 1968. Less active in her later years, Malone returned to film in 1992 as Hazel 
Dobkins ( above) the friend of Sharon Stone’s character in Basic Instinct.

Shelley Fabares is the niece of Nanette Fabray. She began acting at age three and at age 10 made her television debut in an episode of Letters to Loretta. After guest-starring on various television series, Fabares landed the role of "Mary Stone" in the long-running ABC-TV family sitcom The Donna Reed Show (1958 – 1966).

Her national popularity led to a recording contract and two "Top 40" hits, including “Johnny Angel”, which went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, in April 1962. It sold over one-million copies and was awarded a Gold Disc.

Fabares left The Donna Reed Show in 1963 (she would return periodically until its end in 1966) to pursue a film career. She appeared in a number of motion pictures, including three Elvis movies: Girl Happy (1965), Spinnout  (1966), and Clambake (1967).
