Dachshunds in Pop Culture: Patty Duke

Huh? Anna Marie "Patty" Duke (born December 14, 1946) is an Academy Award-, three-time Emmy Award- and two-time Golden Globe Award-winning American actress of stage and film. On Tuesday, she'll step into the role of the congenially manipulative and casually cruel Madame Morrible in "Wicked" at the Orpheum Theatre, in San Francisco, California. Read more at The San Francisco Chronicle.
Above, Ms. Duke has some fun with her smooth black and tan dachshund 'Bogie' on a day off.

Duke's first major role was playing Helen Keller in the Broadway play The Miracle Worker.

Patty Duke, far right, in Valley of the Dolls.

And finally, the funny opening credits to the Patty Duke Show..."Patty loves to rock and roll, a hot dog makes her lose control!" Find out more about Patty at wikipedia.
