Episode Description

A look at the saucy star who danced in nine Elvis Presley movies before carving out a niche as a popular comedienne in such classics as Young Frankenstein and Tootsie. The daughter of one of the original Rockettes, Teri danced with the San Francisco Ballet Company at age 13 and later shook her stuff on TV's Shindig. Then she made the difficult leap to acting, appearing in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Oh, God, and Mr. Mom, but never becoming the leading lady she sought to be.
