LOS ANGELES (AP) — Anyone who grew up watching "The Patty Duke Show" knows "Patty loves to rock and roll, a hot dog makes her lose control." And now they know that receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame makes the Oscar-winning actress tear up.
An emotional Duke hugged her sons, actors Sean and Mackenzie Astin, at her star's unveiling Tuesday in front of Hollywood's landmark Roosevelt Hotel. It was a ceremony Sean Astin called "well-deserved and long overdue."
Duke, already a Broadway star at 14, won a best supporting actress Oscar at 16 for portraying Helen Keller in "The Miracle Worker."
