This personally autographed photo (on the right) of Dianne Kay was given to us in the summer of 1979. She appeared at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky Ohio when they opened an outdoor marine ampatheater. I believe Coca Cola also was sponsoring her appearance there. She answered questions from the audience about the show (Eight is Enough) and how they taped and produced it. She then had an autograph session where she gave us this photo. Her signature was pre-signed but she asked our names and then personally wrote them to us on the spot. Another thing I remember about the session was that she was very kind, patient, and sweet.
It appears that this photo was taken at the same photo shoot as the first picture in your web page, though I think this one is the better of the two. Dianne Kay is the only tv/movie actress I have ever met personally and I must say I think she is the most beautiful lady I have ever met. So yes I have always been a fan of hers too! I always wanted to see her gain more noteriaty and fame than she achieved after EiE.
So that is the history on this photo. Enjoy!
Thanks to Wayne Albus for the photo.
