    That's sad to hear. She will be missed. RIP.
    While I was too young to see the Beach movies, and they were never shown on rerun here, I did love her in this movie, Back To The Beach:
    From what I've read she in a lot of pain while filming this scene. What a star and with dedication

    Heard of her before, but wasn't around when she was on that show. May she rest in peace :(. Such a sad loss.

    Thought I should step in to pay respects, since there probably aren't many of us left who remember Annette when her Mouse Club shows, beach party movies, and peanut butter commercials were new.

    I remember the show, at the time I thought it was kinda of corny.
    but I have a lot more respect for the simplicity and teachings of it now, compared to the shit they pump into kids now a days.

    I remember her peanut butter commercials. Caught one of the beach movies late one night, she had some class. May she rest in peace.

    This is very sad. She deserved better than to die so young and to be so sick for such a long time. I was a bit too young for the original Mickey Mouse Club, but I certainly remember her from the beach movies and TV back in the 60s and 70s. She was an icon.

    RIP, Annette. :(
