Watch That Girl

That Girl has a simple storyline, which is about a struggling beautiful actress named Ann Marie who moves out of her parent's comfortable New York suburban home and goes to the big city to find fame and fortune. Ann Marie moves into a Manhattan apartment and soon finds that landing acting and modeling roles is not easy and soon takes many odd jobs to make ends meet.

Episode after episode, Ann gets into ridiculous and humorous mishaps as she struggles to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Besides taking many part-time jobs, Ann has to deal with her parents, who do not quite understand why she wants to be an actress. Also, Ann Marie is involved in a long-time romance with her boyfriend, Don Hollinger. Don works as a reporter for a magazine. The couple remained boyfriend and girlfriend throughout the first five seasons. However, the couple did finally get engaged during the sixth and final season of the show. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled before Don and Marie married.

The series aired from 1966 to 1971, and for that time period it was considered to be groundbreaking. In 1966, That Girl was the first television show that featured a young and single woman who was trying to find success on her own in a world dominated by men. Even though Ann is an independent woman living on her own, she does often rely on Don for emotional support and encouragement as she struggles to find success as an actress.

That Girl is described as being a fun, easy-going and wholesome show that the entire family can enjoy. The show stars Marlo Thomas as the lovable and quirky Ann Marie and Ted Bessell as her adoring and ever-supportive boyfriend. Lew Parker plays Ann's stern and not-so-understanding father. Rosemary DeCamp plays Ann's loving mother. Danny Thomas, Marlo's real-life father, guest starred on the show twice as himself.

Despite the era of the show, many people will find That Girl to be an appealing, enjoyable and fun way to spend a half hour.
