In the first episode on the 1973 season,The Actress. we get to meet Fanny Tatum, but her appearance does not look like the Fanny Tatum we see in later episodes. We do know that the part of Fanny Tatum was played by Sheila Allen, who was NOT Sian Barbara Allen(Jenny Pendleton's) mother as some may have ascertained. I believe Sheila Allen did make a brief guest appearance in the 1992 movie A League of Their Own in which she criticized the girls for playing a man's sport.
There were two people who played Fanny, one was Sheila Allen and the other actresses name slips my mind, but i think it's listed in my 'Goodnight John-Boy' book, which I can look at when I get home from work.
