Let Go Too Soon

Shelley a 1980 writeup with all the other Charlie's Angels

Shelley became big news in 1979 when she became the newest Charlie's Angel. But by 1980, she was out of the show (Tanya Roberts was brought in to fill in her spot). Many Shelley fans felt/feel that it was too soon for her to leave the Townsend Agency. She was gaining ground as her season was progressing and she was proving her detractors wrong as she showed that she could act. The latter episodes of the season, where she was given more to do and say, proved she could handle the material. And it's not a surprise she could. Just watch the TV movie Death Car on the Freeway and the Love Boat episode she was in (both were aired during the time she was on Angels). Shelley did a really great job in both.
