TROY DONAHUE & ME
(AND JUST A FEW OTHERS!)
by Barbara Samsell
He was one of the guest celebrities signing autographs at an antiques and collectibles show in Gaithersburg, Maryland outside of Washington, D.C. in October 2000.
He looked wonderful, stunning in fact ... very tall and slender, dressed entirely in black, with gray hair and incredible blue eyes.
I walked up to him and he extended his hand to shake mine. "Hi," he said. "I'm Troy Donahue."
No kidding! I laughed and told him I knew that.
I asked him to sign one of my lobby cards from Parrish, which also featured a picture of Diane McBain. When he saw it, Troy remarked that he had just spoken to her several days ago. "How is she doing?" I asked. "Fine," he replied.
