Barbara Hershey Undressed
Barbara Hershey is an American actress, known for her many film roles. Born Barbara Lynn Herzstein on February 5, 1948 in Hollywood, California to an Irish American mother and a Jewish American father who was a horse-racing columnist, Hershey attended Hollywood High School.
Her debut was guest starring in three episodes of Gidget in 1965, which she followed up by being cast in the television series The Monroes (1966). She found working on The Monroes to be such a dispiriting experience that she wrote pseudonymous letters to the producers asking that the show be cancelled. Her feature film debut was in the 1968 comedy - With Six You Get Eggroll - which also marked Doris Day's final screen appearance. This was followed by the 1969 Glenn Ford western Heaven with a Gun, where one of her co-stars was future Kung Fu star David Carradine. They became a romantic couple and a prominent symbol of the Hollywood counterculture - naming their child Free. (He later chose the name Tom for himself).
