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
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).
