Judy! Judy! Judy!

Happy birthday to Judy Carne, born on this date in 1939. Best-known as the "Sock-It- To-Me Girl" on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, she previously starred opposite Pete Duel (both above) in the charming romantic comedy Love on a Rooftop, which aired from 1966 to 1967 on ABC-TV. (This show is the subject of a chapter in my book Lost Laughs of '50s and '60s Television).

As detailed in her outspoken memoir, Laughing on the Outside, Crying on the Inside, life itself had a way of socking it to Judy, and she's been out of public view for quite a few years. Whatever she's up to these days, I hope she's well and happy. She certainly seemed to be overdue for her turn at it.
