A Kelly Called Carol :)

Happy Monday!

Usually, when we see a photo of Jack Kelly and his sister, that sister is his older sibling, Nancy.

Well, here's a pic of JK with his younger sister, Carol (a.k.a. Karolee or Carolee), from a Japanese movie magazine:

Carol played minor roles in films and on TV during the 1950's and 1960's. Big brother Jack seems to be looking askance at Carol's skimpy costume, or maybe he's just pointing out a run in her hose. ;>

I think this is the first photo I've seen of JK and CK together as adults. The magazine in which the pic was printed is dated 1962, but the photo itself probably dates to 1959, when Carol played a stripper named "Fay Dawn" in "Girl In Trouble", an episode of the Warner Bros. detective series Bourbon Street Beat.

When "Girl In Trouble" was rerun in the summer of 1960, Carol told a newspaper reporter that JK visited her on the set. And, she revealed it was actually rather nerve-wracking to have Bart Maverick on Bourbon Street:

What a fun backstage peek at the Kelly clan!

Incidentally, another look at JK and Maverick from Japan will be featured in TDS very soon, so please stay tuned. :)
