Breakfast Club Archives: Our Last Interview With Sally Starr

View Comments

PHILADELPHIA, PA

Sally Starr died yesterday a few days after her 90th birthday. The Breakfast Club talked to her a few years ago and she revealed just what she was laughing at many of the times she opened the show. Dressed in her famed spangled cowgirl outfit, she introduced “Popeye” cartoons and Three Stooges shorts, and welcomed celebrity guests to her live telecasts. She also dispensed life lessons – about everything from fire prevention to getting along with others – to her young fans, and brightened their days by sending great big “smoocheroonies” their way, along with such signature lines as “I hope you feel as good as you look, because you sure look good to Your Gal Sal,” and “Love ya lots! Love, luck and lollipops.” She was so instrumental in introducing the Three Stooges to a new generation of fans that, in 1965, the Stooges invited her to appear as gunslinger Belle Starr in their final film, “The Outlaws Is Coming.”
