When I was about 12 years old, I had a big crush on her. The Mickey Mouse Club was one of the first shows that I liked when I came to the USA as an eleven year old.
Of course I got to see all of Annette's movies.

This harkens back to a more innocent time, the 'beach party' movies she did with Frankie Avalon, Disney, and so on. It was good clean entertainment that is clearly a generational thing, meaning you have to be over 50 to have seen it and perhaps enjoyed it. I always looked at those beach movies as simple fun and a little escape for 90 minutes. Nothing high brow about them but they made you feel good. And wasn't that the point?
