In 1978, a newspaper carried out a survey asking teenagers to list down their ten heroes. Teenagers at the time, instead, responded by listing down the ten people they admire and respect the most. They made it clear that they did not consider them heroes. Many of the people on their list were the top TV and movie stars and celebrities of the era.
Although she didn't make it to the top ten, Shelley was one of the names often listed by the teens. By then, Shelley had become famous as THE one and only Charlie Girl, and her face was recognizable to everyone, including teens.
