Ann Marie is a struggling actress living in New York City. In between trying to find jobs acting and modeling she has time for her boyfriend, Don Hollinger, and her dad, Lou Marie. Written by
The running gag of having the pre-credit sequence ending with a character referring to Ann as "that girl" was originally only supposed to be used in the pilot as it was believed that they would never be able to keep finding ways to work it into the conversation. It ended up being used in almost all the episodes. See more »
Ann Marie moves to New York City from Brewster, NY, which is on the Metro North Railroad's Harlem Line to Grand Central Terminal. The footage behind the credits was shot on New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line (photographed from the rear of a train leaving New York and then shown backwards so the train appears to be going to New York, although on the wrong track).

In the opening of the episode "A Tenor's Loving Care", Giuseppe Casanetti says this episode's "That girl" in Itallian. During the freeze frame of Ann, the words "Quella Ragazza" appear in the title font, followed by "(That Girl)" printed in block letters below. See more »
I love this light hearted comedy. Marlo Thomas is so sweet. Her wardrobe was very hip! She wore the coolest clothes. The show had many guest stars like her dad Danny Thomas, Ethel Merman, Milton Berle,and Sid Caesar. Ted Bessell was the perfect choice to play Ann Marie's boyfriend. They had a wonderful chemistry on screen and remained close friends till his death in 1997. Season 1 & 2 are available on DVD now. So go and buy them and enjoy! The show took our minds off of what was really going on in the world. The Vietnam war was raging, the civil rights movement was tearing the nation apart, and Dr. Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy were murdered during the shows run from 1966-1971.
