Photograph caption dated September 18, 1964 reads "'Smile, baby.' Madame Rose (Gisele MacKenzie) lectures her children, from left, Baby June (Julie Allred) and Louise (Gabrielle Des Enfants), before they begin their act for approval of Uncle Joko (Russ Grieve), who gives them chance." The article partially reads "The talented actress and singer, who gained nationwide fame with the 'Your Hit Parade' and 'Gisele Mackenzie' television shows, won the hearts of the opening night crowd and the heart of the Gypsy, who attended the opening performance at the Valley Music Theater in Woodland Hills Tuesday."; See images #00137808 through #00137813 for all photos in this series.
