Lorene Yarnell Dies At 66

Famed dancer and mime Lorene Shields, one-half of the popular '70s TV duo Shields & Yarnell, has died of a brain aneurysm in her Norway home at the age of 66. Shields & Yarnell's specialty was performing as a married robot couple named "The Clinkers," a schtick they often performed on the Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour and later turned into their own CBS comedy series, which ran for two seasons. Their act seems super corny now, perhaps, but I remember lots of kids getting yelled at for acting like the Clinkers at school.
