Fame if you win it, comes and goes in a minute

I had no idea quite who Susan Anton was - on discovering it is her 65th birthday today - until I looked her up.

Oh, I am soooo glad I did!

The living embodiment of a "Barbie Doll" (that hair doesn't move!), Miss Anton appears to have been "famous for being famous"; a sort-of-Kardashian of the 70s, I guess. She appeared in commercials, and in some barrel-scraping films (Goldengirl, anyone? How about Cannonball Run II? She was nominated "Worst Supporting Actress" in the Golden Raspberry Awards for that one.) She was even in a relationship with Dudley Moore in the early 1980s (he seemed to get through a succession of blondes).

And she had her own television show! It lasted exactly four weeks. Here, on this Tacky Music Monday, she gives it her heart and soul on a Make Someone Happy medley...

It's so important to make someone happy.
Make just one someone happy.
Make just one heart to heart you, you sing to

One smile that cheers you.
One face that lights when it nears you.
One girl your - your everything to

Fame, if you win it,
Comes and goes in a minute
Where's the real stuff in life, to cling to?

Love is the answer.
Someone to love is the answer.
Once you've found her,
Build your world around her.

Make someone happy.
Make just one someone happy.
And you will be happy too.

Bless. Have a good week peeps...

Susan Ellen Anton (born 12th October 1950)


  1. yes, anton was here & there, but i wouldn't compare her to a kardashian. the "k's" have invented a special category, which i've yet to pay attention to.

    1. It's true - their shamelessness makes the Gabors seem like Garbo in comparison. Jx

  2. She was beautiful and was stunningly pretty for years after in minor cameo appearances (I'm sure we could find her on "The Love Boat" somewhere). However, she didn't have an interesting backstory or anything to distinguish her from all the other beauties, except for her great height.

    1. Everybody in showbiz appeared on The Love Boat, surely? That, and Sesame Street or The Muppet Show... Jx
