The Crossroads show was stolen for a few weeks by little Nina Weill, a mentally handicapped six-year-old who moved in
to live with Sharon (played by Carolyn Jones) and Diane (Sue Hanson).
"It was a strange experience for all the cast," Ronnie Allen said. "We were not only working with a child, but
with a handicapped child. I'm not saying it was easy - it wasn't.
"She had to be coaxed into doing the right things. Everyone soon learned that one way to get her to do something
was to tell her not to.
"She made friends with lots of the cast, but for some reason she never bothered with me. She stared at me very
hard the first time we met and I stared back. After that, she gave me a wide berth."
