That Girl-Season 1 V01 (2007)
|Before The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Murphy Brown and Ally McBeal, there was That Girl.|
The groundbreaking situation comedy starring Marlo Thomas, which debuted in 1966, was the first to feature a young, single, independent female character. Ann Marie's pursuit of her dream - to be an actress in New York - and her adventures with her boyfriend, Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell), and her doting parents (Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp) became wildly popular and brought Thomas four Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe Award. Here are the very first 4 episodes of this historic show, along with rare bonus footage, interviews and the pilot episode.
"For anyone who's ever gone after a dream, for anyone who's ever tried to make it on their own--That Girl is for you! Cynthia Boris, DVD Verdict
"...a funny, smart, cute show with two enormously appealing actors working in perfect synch. Paul Mavis, DVD Talk
Editor's NoteTHAT GIRL was a '60s sitcom that starred Marlo Thomas as a young woman who moved to New York City with a head full of acting ambitions. Unfortunately Thomas's character, Ann Marie, has to make do with some interminable temp work while she tries to make it big in the acting world, but this doesn't prevent her from indulging in the big city life. Among the supporting cast are Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp, who play Ann Marie's parents, and Ted Bessell, who plays her boyfriend Donald Hollinger. The show made its mark as one of the first TV productions to center on a single, carefree woman, and also became known for its much-parodied theme song and opening credit sequence. A selection of episodes from the first season of THAT GIRL, which originally aired on ABC in 1966, are featured on this collection.
