Trivia

About halfway through the October 16th, 1987 broadcast of "I Married Dora", ABC News broke in with live coverage of the rescue of "Baby Jessica". She had captured the hearts and attention of the entire nation after having fallen into and becoming trapped in a deep hole in her home town of Midland, Texas. The balance of the episode was never seen by the home audience. See more »

i married Dora
13 September 2006 | by suzan28See all my reviews

i slightly remember this series and i'm trying to remember the name of the actress who played his young daughter, would you kindly put who else was in the cast, it's a great help..but when all i know is him...that's just plain being unfair Susann

i think that the actress might have been Christina ricci, but when i went to her page it wasn't listed...i do remember one of the young up and comers, if i'm not mistaken..but it sure would be good if you could put the rest of the cast, i know that the show didn't even last a year, but i kind of enjoyed it all, and would like to know who the rest of the cast is/was
