Hope Lange's theatrical background
1 February 2005 | by gryphon-webSee all my reviews

I was a fan of the first two seasons of this series. With the third, and final, season there were multiple cast changes and Dick, Hope and the girl that played their daughter were all that was left of the original cast. Interestingly, I recall reading that prior to being cast as Jenny in this series, Hope Lange's acting experience had been as a film actress and she had never performed before live audiences until this time. She made a great transition! In one episode Dick & Jenny are resolving an argument and he makes a comment about, "Whoever said blondes were dumb?" Jenny's reply; "Probably some dumb brunette." Were they giving Mary Tyler Moore a little jab? :-) Although the ratings remained good (not great) after the cast changes, the reason this series was pulled from the CBS schedule was because of an episode the network refused to air; Dick & Jenny's daughter accidentally sees them making love. Her parents then explain what she saw. CBS found the topic too controversial. When Dick Van Dyke and Hope Lange protested, the series went into permanent hiatus. Remember, only a decade earlier Rob & Laura couldn't even sleep in the same bed. But only a few years later CBS allowed Edith Bunker to deal with rape and Maude Findlay with menopause.

BTW ~ In regards to sensitive subject matter, Hope gave a fine performance in the TV movie "That Certain Summer."
