Reportedly, Bonnie Franklin was jealous of all the attention Glenn Scarpelli (Alex Handris) was getting. He ended up leaving the show after a couple of brief seasons. This is similar to the stories surrounding Mary Louise Wilson's departure. Allegedly, Franklin was unhappy with how Mary Louise Wilson (Ginny Wroblicki) was hogging the spotlight and stealing her thunder, and she left after one brief season as well. See more »
The family supposedly moves from Logansport,Indiana to Indianapolis at the beginning of the series.
However, the area where they are shown departing is clearly not "Logansport" which is a small city of roughly 20k located in the north-central portion of the state. No major interstates run in or near Logansport and the city is surround by farmland and some low rolling hills. See more »
My memories about this series are mostly aesthetic. I perfectly remember a wide, fancy, bold furnished condo's apartment where Ann Romano Royer was used to live into with her hysterical daughters. I did appreciated Bonnie Franklin performing as a hurrican's strength in spite of her sweet, sophisticated glance. I still consider Franklin a sensitive artist, a talented actress. Too bad not to see her around nowadays, in Europe at least!
