It is so true that some faces totally disappear from the showbiz world. It was good to learn about Lyn who is leading a comfortable and happy life with her husband.

As a freckled face child myself, growing up in the '60s, I loved watching Dawn on all of the great tv shows from my childhood. Glad to know she has a great life away from Hollywood. Wow, never knew she is Leif Garrett's sister! A big fan of his too!

Dawn R, she was on a Chicago morning show on Waikiki Beach and filmed a "Watch me, on MeTV" commercial for the MeTV Hawaii channel. Also, her blog has a recent story about what she likes most and least about living in HI (the B-52 cockroaches are what she likes least).

I think she was adorable as a child actress and very cute as an adult.
Whether she was good as an actress is a subjective matter of opinion.
Personally I like her very much and wish happiness and contentment in
her life.

Dawn lives in Hawaii and is one of the most beautiful hearted ladies I have ever met. I lovingly remember growing up with My Three Sons and the Douglas Family and Fred McMurray marrying that beautiful lady with the adorable freckled face daugther. Thank you Dawn for such great memories. You are a true treasure.

What a cutely precocious kid this lady was! A genuinely fine actress at such a young and tender age. As far as I'm concerned, she stole the show in the 1971 film titled "Shoot Out" starring Gregory Peck (so appealing as a suddenly displaced orphan, making you want to pick her up and comfort her). She was absolutely adorable in her portrayal of "Dodie" on long-running hit TV series "My Three Sons," wishing she had played more roles as a child film star. I'm glad to know she's now enjoying a happy, settled life.

I was surprised by the scene in Shootout, when Gregory peck gave Dawn a bath in the river because she smelled. I think the movie would have benefitted from better writing. The acting was great. Didn't watch My 3 Sons very much, so I don't recall her in it. Good luck to her, wherever she goes.

Hello Everyone,

YES, this is the real Dawn that was Dodie in My Three Sons.

This site/chat was brought to my attention, and curiosity got the better of me so I started reading.

Ok, here goes.

To Fred: LOL. I love you too, Sweetie.

To Dawn H: Seriously? You were named after me? How flattering. Big hugs to you.

To Sweet Pea: I don't know you either, *****, but we have something in common. One of my mom's nicknames for me was Sweet Pea.

To Lisa R: ROFL Now, now, this is a PG rated site.

To Debbie Rose: Huge hugs to you and Doc, we miss you two! Thank you for the kind words.

To Scotty: Wow. Sup? I don't have a school photo, can you post one? Maui? We were on Oahu. Aloha!

To Tom: Trailer park? You personally saw me at a 7-11 trying to get quarters for beer? PRICELESS! I LOVE your imagination.

To Annie: I deeply appreciate the kind words. I have never thought of myself as special because I grew up acting. We are all unique, literally one of a kind, so please consider yourself a princess too.

To everyone else that commented: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being positive and sending good wishes. I wish all of you health, happiness, and love.

Dawn!
My husband is watching the movie you shot in 1971 with Gregory Peck and I said, "That's 'darling' Dawn Lyn from 'My Three Sons'!" My husband was amazed that I even knew your name because it wasn't sourced in the Xfinity "cast info" even though your part was very prominent. Such a marvelous actress for being so young and I'm so glad that you're healthy and happy at "our" age! Best wishes to you in the future :)

Just watched Dawn Lyn in a Mannix episode from 1973 called "Little Girl Lost". She played the title character, a child who witnessed her father's murder. (Beverly Garland, who played Dawn/ Dodie's TV mom on My Three Sons, was also in this Mannix.) What a talented young actress ... Glad to hear she's doing well.

Dawn is an extremely talented and gifted actress. I remember when she filmed an episode of the television series The Streets of San Francisco ("Castle of Fear") right near my home in Burlingame, CA. She gave me a big smile when she was being led to the set and I almost melted. I still have the picture. Dawn, we loved you then and we love you now. Keep being a great inspiration to so many and wishing you much continued happiness. Liam

@Becky, yes, I just saw her as Decky in Shoot Out too and I knew I had seen her before. I was thinking in Disney movies from way back when, but I see that I must remember her from My Three Sons as well as The Walking Tall. I am glad to hear she is doing well and enjoying her life. I was also surprised to hear she is Leif Garrett's sister, since I too always thought he was awesome. It is a shame that he allowed himself to get so low as to end up on TruTv episodes. It is sad to see them choosing to get all drugged up and destroy their lives, Such a waste.

To thanks everyone; Thank you for the good wishes. I agree that Leif is awesome, my brother is a good and sensitive person. Maybe a little too sensitive for some of the negative things that he experienced.

To Nancy; Thank you. I wish you nothing but the best.

To Sherry; Thank you. Yes, I did know he was a big star. I only saw him once after we filmed Shootout, and I am happy to say he was as wonderful as I remembered.
