The Angel and the Comedy Legend

Shelley with Dick Van Dyke take a break
from filming Found Money on 1983

Shelley starred with Comedy Legend Dick Van Dyke in the TV movie Found Money a.k.a. My Secret Angel in 1983. The TV movie also starred another Comedy Legend, Sid Ceasar. She found both actors/comedians "very generous to work with" but had to keep up with the duos pace. "You had to work so fast, because everything was left loose," she told TV Guide. "I felt like I kind of jumped on a moving train," she added. Shelley would again work with Dick Van Dyke in 1997 - as a guest star in his series Diagnosis Murder.
