To Santiago Rodriguez, a celebrity photographer based in Los Angeles, for permission to use photographs he has taken of Tisha and her family throughout four decades. You can e-mail him directly at for further information. (Depending on your eMail software, such as Yahoo or GMail, your interface may read something like If that happens, just delete mailto: and to use Santiago's eMail address.)

Tisha's marvelous interview with Tom Lisanti appears in his book Fantasy Femmes of Sixties Cinema, which includes several photos of Tisha as well as a comprehensive filmography, on which I've relied very heavily with occasional supplementing from the Internet Movie Data Base.

For a superb biography of Ann Sothern, including substantial material on Tisha, get hold of Margie Schultz's pricey (but well worth it) Ann Sothern: A Bio-Bibliography.

BatFans everywhere will be interested in the work of Rob Long, who's created phenomenal graphics work on Batman themes, which he sells at a very reasonable price. Take that picture of "Tisha-as-Legs inside of the Sun," the logo of Tisha's Theatre. The actual silhouette cut-out of Tisha was created by Rob from a still-frame from the "Ma Parker" episode of Batman. All I had to do was design a graphic of the Sun and put the silhouette inside of it.

The really weird, blood-red font face used in the Flash movie of Night Gallery: Return of the Sorcerer is called "Shlop" and it (along with a lot of others) is available for free from a fellow named Ray Larabie.

Some of the graphic animations, principally those on "The Young Comedienne" and the "Contact" pages, have been purchased by subscription to The Animation Factory.

The fanciest design in the world isn't going to create a website of any interest if the subject itself is dull. So the biggest credit of all goes to Tisha Sterling herself, for her talent as an actress and charm as a person that should make any website interesting! But she's in no way responsible for anything on here, so if there's anything you don't like blame The Man Behind the Curtain . . . but be grateful to Tisha for whatever it is that you've enjoyed.
