A Young Ally Sheedy on “To Tell the Truth” in 1975
Noteworthy for her acting prowess, Ally Sheedy is not confined solely to the realm of performing arts; she has also showcased her literary aptitude through the publication of two books. The latter of the two, published in 1991, took the form of a poetry collection. However, it is her debut literary endeavor that invites a more intriguing exploration—a narrative centered around a mouse bearing witness to history's unfolding. Titled “She Was Nice To Mice: The Other Side of Elizabeth I’s Character Never Before Revealed by Previous Historians” this work emerged under the banner of McGraw Hill. What distinguishes this accomplishment is the fact that Sheedy penned this engaging tale at the tender age of 12.
The feat of securing a book deal is undeniably commendable, regardless of one's age. Yet, there exists an even more remarkable facet to Sheedy's early journey—an appearance on the show "To Tell the Truth" in 1975. This foray into the realm of television reveals a charming glimpse into her persona. Notably, her fellow contestants also deliver noteworthy performances. Regrettably, the availability of the episode in which Sheedy participated often wanes across the digital landscape.
At present, access to this particular episode remains exclusively attainable through the conduit of Facebook, with a video embedded herein. It is noteworthy to acknowledge the contributor Fly_1964 for providing the video. Although the availability may be sporadic, should a resurgence of this episode occur, it shall promptly be shared here to afford you the opportunity for viewing enjoyment.
