Cynthia Pepper was the perfect "Margie"
15 April 2000 | by jperinSee all my reviews

I was a senior in high school when "Margie" was on the ABC-TV Network line-up for the 1961-62 season. I will admit, I really had a "crush" on Cynthia Pepper. She was the perfect "Margie".

This show attemmpted to show that the problems the youth of the Roaring 20's were facing were not much different that faced by the teenagers of the early 1960's.

Not many people recall this series. If you ask someone about it, they may think you are referring to "My Little Margie" starring Gale Storm. Not only were they not on network TV at the same time, but Gale Storm's "Margie" was screwball comedy. Cynthia Pepper's "Margie" was lighthearted and warm comedy.

It still easy to spot Miss Pepper in a TV show or movie. You just look for the upturned corners of her mouth. She presented a sweetness that was noticed. Her acting career was all too brief.

Would love to have some videos of this show. I know it was shown long before home videos were in use. I wonder if any of the 30-minute films are in an ABC vault somewhere? I do have a small portion of one of the shows on reel-to-reel audio tape including the opening with the theme ("After all is said and done, there is really only one...Oh, Margie, Margie, it's you").

I really liked this show. It offered warmth and honest humor. Wish it had lasted longer.
