Trivia

The theme song was titled "Bows and Strings in Teasing" by Alexander Laszlo. It was originally written the Republic film The French Key (1946). Other musical cues were supplied through David Chudnow's MUTEL Music for Television Library. There was no original music created for this show, although Laszlo did a new arrangement of his theme for this series, which is now known as the "My Little Margie" Theme. See more »

Cute Gale Storm made this a classic
1 March 2011 | by earlytalkieSee all my reviews

Gale Storm starred in this series for three years. The show was originally a summer replacement for "I Love Lucy". It ran for nine episodes and then was picked up for the fall season. Charles Farrell co-starred as Margie's father Vern Albright. This was one of the rare sitcoms of the time that did not include a traditional family. Vern is a widower and he spends much of his time in the series trying to keep Margie away from boyfriends he deems unsuitable. Margie, on the other hand is frequently trying to keep Vern away from gold-digging women, attracted to the attractive Vern and his money. This is a charming series that really made a star out of Gale Storm. Other fun people in the cast include Hillary Brooke as Vern's sometime girlfriend Roberta Townsend, Willie Best as Charlie, the elevator operator in the Albright's apartment building, Clarence Kolb as Mr. Honeywell, Vern's boss(also the only hearing-impaired actor I've ever seen to appear on-screen wearing a hearing aid), and perhaps best of all, Gertrude Hoffman as Mrs. Odetts, the daffy oldster who lives across the hall from the Albrights. Check this show out. It's Fun.
