A popular TV series in the '60s, The Patty Duke Show revolves around identical cousins (what are the chances of that?). Patty Duke plays both parts; world traveler Cathy and typical Brooklyn Heights teenager Patty. Cathy comes to live with her cousin and her family to attend school while her father works as a world correspondent overseas. Others in the cast include William Schallert, Jean Byron, Paul O'Keefe, and Eddie Applegate.
