The redheaded Louise (b. 1934) seems to have been rather more serious-minded than one would have ever surmised at the time--i.e., when one sat glued in front of the TV with one's 4-year old sister in 1965. Yes, Tina started out--with Jayne Mansfield--as a "product advocate" in the 1958 Frederick's of Hollywood catalog. But she longed to be a serious actress and later said Gilligan's Island had ruined her career by causing her to be typecast forever after as post-nubile bimbo.
In the glamorous AP publicity photo above, her culinary partners seem smitten enough. Heavily lacquered locks are everywhere. Below, a recent pic of Tina from Google images.

A very rusty-grotty linen card from times gone by. Looks as if negative itself got dipped in absinthe in the darkroom, rather than the approved chemicals.
The man, the white shoes, the red fire hydrant, the green doors and shutters: oddly syphilitic.
