Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,

Tina Louise

Here are two lovely songs performed by the beautiful Tina Louise.
Tina Louise (born Tatiana Josivovna Chernova Blacker in 1934 in New York City) is an American model, singer and actress.
Louise began her career as a model and nightclub singer while she studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse. She appeared on the cover of scores of pinup magazines such as Adam, Sir! and Modern Man, and posed for semi-nude pictorials for Playboy (May 1958, April 1959). Her acting debut came in 1952 in the Bette Davis musical revue Two's Company, followed by roles in other Broadway productions, such as John Murray Anderson's Almanac, The Fifth Season, Pipe Dream, and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? She also appeared in such early live TV dramas as Studio One, Producers' Showcase, and Appointment with Adventure. In 1957, she and Julie Newmar appeared on Broadway in the hit musical Li'l Abner.
Louise made her Hollywood film debut in 1958 in God's Little Acre. She became an in-demand leading lady for major stars like Robert Taylor, Richard Widmark and Robert Ryan, often playing somber roles quite unlike the glamorous pinup photographs and Playboy pictorials she had become famous for in the late 1950s. Further roles followed, on Broadway and in Italian cinema and Hollywood. Among her more notable Italian film credits was the historical epic Garibaldi (1960), directed by Roberto Rossellini, that concerned Garibaldi's efforts to unify the Italian states in 1860.
When Louise returned to the United States, she began studying with Lee Strasberg and eventually became a member of the Actors Studio. She appeared in the 1964 Beach party film For Those Who Think Young, with Bob Denver, prior to the development of Gilligan's Island.
In 1964, she left the Broadway musical Fade Out - Fade In to portray movie star Ginger Grant on the TV sitcom Gilligan's Island, after the part was turned down by Jayne Mansfield.
After the series ended in 1967, Louise continued to work in film and made numerous guest appearances in various television series. She appeared as a doomed suburban housewife in the original The Stepford Wives (1975), and both the film and her performance were well received. She attempted to shed her comedic image by essaying grittier roles, including a guest appearance as a pathetic heroin addict in a 1974 Kojak episode, as well as a co-starring role as an evil Southern prison guard in the 1976 ABC TV Movie Nightmare in Badham County. Her other TV movies of the period included Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby (1976), SST: Death Flight (1977), and Friendships Secrets and Lies (1979).
Louise appeared as a semi-regular character in the prime-time soap opera Dallas and made an appearance on Married... with Children. In 1985, Louise played the second and final Taylor Chapin on the syndicated soap opera Rituals. Later film roles included a co-starring appearance in the Robert Altman comedy O.C. and Stiggs (1987), as well as the independently made satire Johnny Suede (1992) starring Brad Pitt.
Louise now resides in New York City. Since 1995, she has worked as a volunteer teacher with Learning Leaders, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing tutoring to New York City school children. She has written two children's books: Sunday: A Memoir (1997) and When I Grow Up (2007).
Louise made four record albums, two for Concert Hall, and two for Urania Record (1958 and 1959 respectively). By far the most sought-after of these is the 1957 album It's Time For Tina (Concert Hall 1521), with arrangements by Jim Timmens and Buddy Weed's Orchestra.
Enjoy Tina Louise'great beauty and sweet voice!
