Carol Channing Marries Childhood Love At 82

Broadway star CAROL CHANNING has proved that love never dies - by marrying her childhood sweetheart at the age of 82.

The HELLO DOLLY musical actress was reunited with her schoolyard love HARRY KULLIJIAN, 83, after his pal read her autobiography and passed her message of love onto Kullijian, who thought Channing had died.

The octogenarian two were wed in San Francisco on Saturday (10MAY03) before around three dozen family and friends.

Kullijian says, "She still had the same spark. I just knew it was the right thing to do."

In her book, JUST LUCKY, I GUESS, which reunited the pair, Channing wrote, "The leader of the school band was Harry Kullijian. I was so in love with Harry; I couldn't stop hugging him."

The APTOS JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL sweethearts had their burgeoning relationship ended by Channing's mother, who believed her daughter was too forward.

But after meeting up again this February (03), Channing and Kullijian quickly set a date to re-affirm their love.

It is Channing's fourth marriage and Kullijian's second.
