In "Everywhere a Sheik, Sheik" Donna played Princess Colette. Typically Donna designed and made all her performance costumes; this time it’s a silver faux leather mini skirt. Her hair is the classic flip "do" that she always took pride in doing herself. In addition to her hair, she also did her own make-up, this time including double layer (false) eyelashes, which are back in vogue today. It is said that the on-screen kisses with Davy led to an off-screen invitation for more. Episode was filmed 4/67 and aired 9/25/67.

Donna Loren was the one-and-only "Dr Pepper Girl" from 1963 to 1968. She was signed to a long-term contract with the soft-drink company to sing all television and radio commercials, do all magazine and billboard advertising representing them in every capacity, sometimes sharing the spotlight with American Bandstand’s Dick Clark. This relationship led to her touring in Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars with other popular acts like The Supremes and singing solos in the popular Beach Party films starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. Later, she became the regular female vocalist on the popular 60's American live rock ‘n roll TV show "Shindig" and she appeared in singing and acting roles in many popular TV shows like Batman, Gomer Pyle, The Mothers-In-Law, Red Skelton, Milton Berle and various game shows. She released over 20 singles, an LP and 2 CD's. Ms Loren is currently in the studio again recording. More info: www.donnaloren.net

Very interesting. I remember her from The Monkees, but hadn't realised she was such a star in her own right.
