Product Description

That Girl - Season One


In the flapper era, Clara Bow was the It girl. In the liberated 1960s, Marlo Thomas was all That. Her groundbreaking character, Ann Marie, opened the door for a new generation of independent women on TV who just might make it after all. Ann was not a wife, mother, daughter, girlfriend, ditzy neighbor, sidekick, or fantasy object (neither genie nor witch). She was something new and contemporary, an aspiring actress who leaves home to pursue her career in New York City. "You did a wonderful job helping me grow up, but now I'm up," she sweetly tells her overprotective parents (an Emmy-worthy Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp) in "Goodbye, Hello, Goodbye." That Girl was not a total break from TV convention. In this inaugural season, she has a kinda kooky neighbor and Rhoda-antecedent, Judy (Bonnie Scott). And she has a boyfriend, magazine writer Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell), whom she meets cute in the first aired episode, "Don't Just Do Something, Stand There." Ann and Donald are one of TV's great comedy teams. They have a delightful Barefoot in the Park-like chemistry, with Ann the vivacious, more free-spirited one, and Donald the more practical one. One of their best episodes is "Anatomy of a Blunder," in which Donald suffers every disaster and indignity en route to meet Ann's father for the first time. Thomas was honored with a Golden Globe award for this season, and the series established her as "talented, unusual, a bright new face" (to quote the want ad Ann is desperate to answer in "You Have to Know Someone to Be an Unknown").

One of the other kicks of reuniting with That Girl is the stellar roster of veteran character actors and future stars. Dabney Coleman, Bernie Kopell (Get Smart, The Love Boat), and Ronnie Schell (Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.) are regulars this season. Guest stars include Sally Kellerman and George Carlin in "Break a Leg," Rob Reiner and "Terry" Garr in "This Little Piggy Had a Ball" (the inevitable bowling-ball-stuck-on-the-toe episode), and a pre-All in the Family Carroll O'Connor as an amorous opera singer in "A Tenor's Loving Care." That Girl is so-'60s, but as with The Dick Van Dyke Show, on which series creators Sam Denoff and Bill Persky previously worked, the literate, character-driven comedy holds up remarkably well. --Donald Liebenson

I remember watching "That Girl" as a child and the DVD has lived up to my recollection. The show is amusing, the clothing fantastic, and there were many episodes that were fun to watch even though they did not always align precisely with my memories. If you like the 60's and the girly TV shows that were popular then - you will enjoy this show. My daughter likes it even more than I did.

This season does a great job at introductions. How Ann met her boyfriend, and her neighbours, and her family. In the 1960s when this aired I could not WAIT for it to come on each week. We had other sitcoms like Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and those were great too, but this one was more realistic. The situations that Ann got herself into were very clever sometimes. The writing was awesome, and even now in 2012 I will admit "That Girl" is one of the only TV shows that gets a laugh out of me every time. You can't help but love Marlo Thomas in this sitcom. She did an amazing job throughout the entire series and I hope That Girl will be around for centuries to come. It's pure entertainment at its finest!

This is a gorgeously packaged DVD set of That Girl season 1.
It was a lot of fun to watch. The picture is super clear and the audio is impeccable.
If you are a Marlo Thomas fan. You will love this set, I plan on getting all 5 seasons.
In fact I already own seasons 1-3, only two more to go. The special features are a lot of
fun and on season 1 DVD and season 2 DVD there are two different Pilot episodes of That Girl.
It is interesting to see some of the original concepts they came up for Ann Marie.
This series is worth the price. I wish other companies delivered such quality. The jacket art is
lovely and so are the discs inside. This is a set that you will want to keep forever.

HASH(0x9a5a89a8) out of 5 stars Colorful, Bright, a Great Box Set May 9 2006
By Dorrie Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This set is a big box of eye candy and I'm so pleased to have it.

That Girl is a television series that aired from 1966-1971. Shout Factory recently released That Girl season one on DVD. The colorful five disc set includes all thirty episodes from the shows first season. The picture and sound quality is great on the episodes.

If That Girl was before your time let me refresh your memory. The set includes the pilot episode. In this episode Ann Marie is seen in the big city pursuing her acting career. She is working at a counter when she is spotted by film makers looking for a last minute actress. On her lunch break she decides to look at a desk that is for sale and she crosses paths with a man named Don who is also interested in the desk. They cross paths later in the evening while she is filming a kidnapping scene and he thinks she is being kidnapped for real and he tries to rescue her. Everything works out fine and Ann Marie and Donald become boyfriend and girlfriend.

Although That Girl aired in the 1960's, it really opened the door for women sitcom stars. This show was before Mary Tyler Moore and decades before shows like Murphy Brown, Blossom, Ally McBeal, Ellen,Grace Under Fire and Suddenly Susan. The situations that Ann Marie finds herself in our themes that became common in the Hollywood sitcom. Babysitting woes, minor court cases, problems with parents, and much more.

This is a really great set and one of the best TV on DVD sets Shout has ever released. It's so bright and colorful and full of bonus features. Bonus material includes:

-Original That Girl Pilot Episode

-That Show...That Woman...The Creation Of That Girl with Marlo Thomas

-That Girl promos

-That Girl in New York with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky

-Audio commentaries with Marlo Thomas and Bill Persky

I am having such a good time watching these shows again. In 1966, I was 11 years old, but I remember loving this show. Yes, the clothes! New York City! Donald! And Marlo Thomas looks fabulous. How pretty she is and the show is hilarious. The packaging on this box set is eye candy and the extras are great. This is how a DVD TV show set should be. My 15 year old daughter is already in love with Ann Marie. And this is the kind of show you can enjoy with your kids. Heck, even my hubby loves this show. A great price for such wonderful memories! Get this NOW!

I am so glad that this series is being released. I have waited for it forever. This, in my opinion, was one of the best shows of the 60's. Ann Marie is a classic.

HASH(0x9a306210) out of 5 stars Before Mary Richards we had Ann Marie!!! Sept. 25 2006
By R. Lussier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is by far the best release of a sitcom from the 60's I've seen yet. (Second only to the Dick Van Dyke Show) Perfectly restored episodes, guides with orignal air dates in the packaging, and plenty of extras, and a great price on top of that make this a bargain for any fan of "That Girl".

The situations are as funny as they've ever been. My wife was never a fan of the show, but she watched a couple episodes with me and was laughing out loud.

The extras include an interview with Marlo about the creation of the show. There is also a short with much of the outdoor shots taken in New York that were woven into the episodes with commentary on how they did that. On top of that, they include the never-aired pilot!!!

The packaging is bright and colorful and of similar quaility to the "Everybody Loves Raymond" sets.

If you were ever a fan of this show, you will not be disappointed with this set, and Amazon has the best price by far.

HASH(0x9a5a8abc) out of 5 stars That Girl Marlo March 27 2006
By Tee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Beautiful Marlo Thomas ranks among the most delightful sitcom heroines of all time - she was consistently nominated for the Best Comedy Actress Emmy honor for this series and should have won at least once. I loved this program growing up mainly because Marlo is so appealing in the part as the aspiring actress who can't seem to get a major break. THAT GIRL was one of ABC's few major hits during the 1960's, there were far fewer ABC stations at the time and the best programs from the network were often picked up by NBC or CBS stations and shown in their non-network time slots, this is how I saw the show when I was young. As I grew up and became a fan of old movies, I could see the influence of the classic romantic comedies of Claudette Colbert and Carole Lombard on this show and of course THAT GIRL was a pioneer TV program with a "working girl" heroine. I cannot wait to get this DVD set and hear Marlo gasp once again in her slightly raspy voice "Oh, Donald!"
