Jennifer Farrell - The ghost of a beautiful and sexy movie star, Jennifer Farrell (Ann Jillian) whose spirit still roamed her Beverly Hills mansion on the ghostly sitcom JENNIFER SLEPT HERE/NBC/1983-84.

Jennifer Farrell and Joey

Jennifer died in 1978 and five years later New York lawyer George Elliot (Brandon Maggart), his wife, Susan (Georgia Engel) and their children, Joey (John P. Navin, Jr.) and daughter, Marilyn (Mya Akerling) took up residence at Jennifer's mansion at 32 Rexford Drive.

Soon Jennifer learned to tolerate her live-in guests and eventually she revealed herself to their teenage son, Joey and began to help him adjust to life in California. But Jennifer would only appear to Joey.

As friends, they occasionally helped each other out of predicaments. So when Joey wanted to scare the Fanucci Twins, Jennifer appeared during a mock séance, and when a nude photograph of Jennifer (taken for a calendar shot in 1966 when she was broke) comes up for auction, Joey comes to rescue and keeps it off the market.

Jennifer's film credits included Desire, Stairway to Paradise and after her death a biopic entitled "The Jennifer Farrell Story" (ironically, the film's starring role went to Jennifer's old rival).

Jennifer came to California from Illinois when she was 17. Before going West, Jennifer attended Pinehurst Elementary school and Lanford High School. She dropped out of school at 17 and ran off to California looking for fortune and fame. He first job was as a waitress at Danny's Dinner.

Other people to visit Jennifer's mansion included Marc (Glenn Scarpelli), a con-artist teenager who lived next-door and Jennifer's deceased mother Alice Farrell (played by Debbie Reynolds).
