Woho collage update

Many know Spaeth’s founder and president, Merrie Spaeth, as a savvy public relations expert who was once credited for bringing the White House and Reagan Administration into the "Space Age." But what many don’t know is that Merrie first made headlines as a teen actress for her starring role in the classic film The World of Henry Orient.

The film recently celebrated its 50th anniversary during the TCM Classic Film Festival.

In the words of Merrie’s famous character, "Golly Moses!"

Merrie returned to Hollywood for the festival, where she introduced the film with former co-star Paula Prentiss.The festival weekend also included a trip down the red carpet.

And although we love Merrie in her signature Spaeth red, we think she’s never looked better than when she wore a Chinese coolie hat and wool coat.

Take a pictorial tour with some of Merrie's favorite Henry Orient memories:
