Shelley's post Charlie's Angels career was not as bad a most people would want to believe. She immediately jumped from TV to theater via Vanities and got critical praise for her performance. She then went to another play, Close Ties, then to yet another one, Born Yesterday, and drew even more critical acclaim. Shelley's theatrical career was such a success her that it sort of opened new doors for her in Hollywood. By 1983, with Angels behind her, Shelley had a Scorsese movie (The King of Comedy) under her belt - as well as two TV movies (Trackdown: Finding the Goodbar Killer, Found Money) and a TV series (Cutter to Houston.) Now that's rising from the ashes.
