This page compiles the rare information about Shalane McCall who played the character Charlotte (Charlie) Wade in the world's most famous soap opera Dallas. Little is known about Shalane who once was a promising teen celebrity but then dediced to leave show business forever.

Comment forms protected against spam

While updating some older modules, I discovered that hundreds of spam comments have been made since I revamped this page. Fortunately, all of them went into the approval queue, so none of it was visible.

But, I also found one real comment (sorry to the poster that this comment never got visible until now), so I decided to install a CAPTCHA module (Mollom) to prevent spam from passing thru but allowing real comments to be visible. I also set up an email rule so I get notified of every new submitted comment that made it thru the CAPTCHA check.

(Pictures) gallery updated

I have updated the (pictures) gallery to the latest version of Coppermine (the gallery software that I use here). I have also re-enabled the comment function in the gallery. Note that user registration in the gallery has been disabled now (as well as here on the main page) as I don't think there is any need for registration in the gallery. I also have removed all the users that had registered for the gallery (none of them has logged into the gallery for at least four years anyway).

Video gallery added

Well... it's been almost a year since I started to revamp the page and I have to admit I haven't done very much...

But... today after updating all the outdated modules, I have also added a video gallery which lists some of the videos with Shalane that are available on youtube. In case you haven't seen the videos, be sure to watch the three parts of Shalane's modeling video Modeling... what it takes - with Shalane McCall which have been ripped from the video tape of the 80s.

Page currently being revamped!

Finally, finally, finally I initially installed Drupal to revamp the Shalane McCall Appreciation Page.

Originally I wanted to leave the page as it existed now for over a decade as a monument of Web 0.x technology, but on the other hand, the page was really ugly and it just had to be improved. I will copy/merge all previous content into the new page within the next couple of days. You may still reach the old page at but note that the links back to the index page do not work as they point directly to Use your browser's back button instead of the "Index" link.

(I wanted to keep the revamped page unpublished until I finished copying/merging of most of the content, unfortunately, there is either a bug in Drupal or the CKEditor that I am using which creates strange side effects if the new page is not reachable under This is the reason why I had to publish the new version already as I need to make the necessary additions without having to hassle around with this bug.)

Commenting and user registration (not quite sure whether I will really switch on user registration at all or just allow guest comments) has not been configured yet but will be enabled once the new page is ready.
