I just revisted Girls Town the other day, which reminded me it has a few successful alums. Mamie Van Doren, of course, had a successful B-movie career. One of her husbands, Ray Anthony, was the detective in GT and was a successful big band leader who had the first hit single with the theme from Peter Gunn, which had a few hit versions. He is the last surviving member of Glenn Miller's orchestra. Elinor Donahue was very well known for Father Knows Best and other TV work and is also an alum of the original Star Trek series in the 2nd season episode "Metamorphosis". Dick Contino was known more as a successful accordionist than as an actor and was still touring near the end of his life. Mel Torme, of course, was a hugely successful singer-songwriter. So is Paul Anka. In fact, just a few days ago at the local Piggly Wiggly I heard "Having My Baby" over the sound system. And, of course, The Platters had their cameo. There are other GT alums with success, but these are probably the best known ones.
