Grudge Match: Patty Duke vs. Hayley Mills




Among the upheavals and conflicts of the '60s, one thing gave hope to the world: the ability of look-alike teenage girls with nothing in common to work together toward a common goal. But now these pairs have decided to work together to commit deadly violence: It's identical long-lost sisters Sharon and Susan (Hayley Mills, The Parent Trap) vs. identical cousins Cathy and Patty (Patty Duke, The Patty Duke Show). Which twins will take the top tier in terrifying toughness?



Sharon and Susan have committed more acts of mayhem than Cathy and Patty, and they have the RAGE (tm) on their side because of the trauma they went through at the hands of their horrible abusive parents (what else would you call parents who split their twin girls apart and never tell them they have a sister?). On the other hand, Cathy and Patty have a wider variety of skills; Cathy has learned a thing or two from living most everywhere, and if Patty eats a hot dog before the fight, she will "lose control" and be an unstoppable killing machine.

Hailey's record Let's Get Together charted higher than Patty's Don't Just Stand There, too. Food for thought.

My money is on Hailey

Gotta go with the meat-eating lunatic from Brooklyn ever time.

The Patty Duke Show theme is one of the best of all time. And the show had the great Bill Schallert.

Hayley can't come close.

Hayley wouldn't stand a chance against Patty.

Patty, over Hayley. Ironic that both appeared in Ran kin-Bass's 1966 "The Daydreamer" who ALSO had the Dukestress's TV brother Paul O';Keefe in the title role [and M-G-M's "Oz" costars Ray Bolger and Margaret Hamilton].:)Steve
