Michelle must have a thing for stars of offbeat musicals. Lee Marvin singing "Wandering Star" in "Paint Your Wagon" is one of my favorite movie musical moments of all time. I wish Lee had done more song and dance flicks.

Michelle was quite the actress too. She was a stand-in in Marvin's 1965 film "Ship of Fools" and later in the television series "Diagnosis Murder."

Diagnosis Murder starred...
Wait for it...

Dick Van Dyke.

SHE'S the reason we have the ridiculous term "palimony?"

I now hate her.

Y'know, Trina's ex-husband wrote a rap song that Dick performed on "Diagnosis: Murder."
