On last night's "60 Minutes," she was spotlighted as one of six people in the world known to have hyperthymesia, or superior autobiographical memory. The rare condition allows her to remember nearly every day of her life, running back several decades.
During her "60 Minutes" segment, Marilu was quizzed about everything from what day of the week certain dates fell on, to what she ate at certain meals, to when she first wore certain shoes. So where was Marilu on October 26, 1976? "1976 was a Tuesday," Marilu said. "Oh, I went to shoot a ring-around-the-collar commercial in Venice, Italy. And you saw a second-and-a-half mood shot of Venice and then a gondolier singing, 'Of Love I Sing, tra-la-la-la, for you got ring around the coll-la-la.' And I went, 'My powder didn't work.'" Ding-ding-ding, that's right!
