Pamela Sue Martin attended public schools in Westport, Connecticut and graduated from Staples High School in February, 1971. Before she graduated, Pamela was working in a hamburger stand for $1.45 per hour when a friend told her that she was earning $60 per hour modeling in New York.
Liking the wages and being of an ambitious nature, Pamela Sue decided to emulate her friend and soon was earning a good living as a teenage model for print ads and television commercials. Although she was completely innocent of dramatic training, experience or even ambitions, when Pamela Sue heard that Columbia Pictures was auditioning girls for a film called “To Find a Man,” she decided to try.
It took the producers three months to make up their minds, but in the end Pamela Sue had the female starring role. On the basis of her performance in “To Find a Man,” producer Irwin Allen cast her to co-star with five Academy Award winners in “The Poseidon Adventure.” Then came a starring role in the ABC Movie of the Week, “The Girls of Huntington House,” and a co-starring role with Jan-Michael Vincent in “Buster and Billie.”
