Notes

Mills produced her own beauty video "The Eyes Have It".

She has co-hosted the annual Easter Seals telethon with Pat Boone.

Mills has served as Director of Fashion and Beauty for Faberge.

"I like being able to have the kind of control over the finished project. You come out with a movie that has your imprint on it."--Donna Mills in THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, September 26, 1995

"If I had gotten som big [movie] roles, it would probably be all over by now. Movie careers don't last all that long, generally. But my television career has been terrific, so I can't say that I'm disappointed at all."--Mills quoted in SOAP OPERA DIGEST, December 17, 1996
