"Freckles"

As told by Carole Silvester

 

My friend "Freckles" and I go a long way back.  My Mother purchased him for me as she thought I had a talent for ventriloquism.

I was in a dancing school called the Marie Moser Conservatory doing singing, dancing and acting and modeling. I also did a lot of charity work at Veterans hospitals as well as some little parts in a couple of movies called Naked City and Dark Wood.

Marie Moser had a variety show called The Starlets on Channel 13 from Newark New Jersey. The year was about 1950-51.   I was the mistress of ceremony with "Freckles" on the show for a couple of years.

I did skits and sang with "Freckles."  My name then was Carole Silvester.  It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work sitting in front of a mirror practicing my facial expression and not moving my lips.
