Trivia

The train in the opening sequence of the series was shot at Secaucus Junction, in Secaucus, NJ. It was filmed out of the back of the train as it headed northwest, then the film was reversed, making it appear to be heading towards Newark. That is why traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike (running parallel to the right, with Laurel Hill in the background) is moving backwards. See more »

Goofs

Ann Marie moves to New York City from Brewster, NY, which is on the Metro North Railroad's Harlem Line to Grand Central Terminal. The footage behind the credits was shot on New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line (photographed from the rear of a train leaving New York and then shown backwards so the train appears to be going to New York, although on the wrong track). See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening for season 1 only is not the famous train tracks, but a breathless and beautiful Ann Marie running across a NY street to a building, dressed in a pale blue coat, white gloves and shoes, white pocketbook under her arm. The train tracks don't come until seasons 2, 3, & 4, and season 5 adds lyrics to the up-tempo opening music ("Diamonds, daisies, snowflakes..."). See more »

One of the rare 'bright' comedies
10 December 2006 | by vrangerSee all my reviews

'That Girl' is a 60s sitcom that holds up much better than most when viewed almost 40 years later.

Altho Marlo Thomas provides most of the zaniness that sitcoms often seek to provide, my favorite role was actually Ted Bessel's Don Hollinger. The character of Don was, for the most part, a very calm, composed influence on the show. He seldom got flustered in the face of Ann's occasional hysterics or her father's often stern disapproval. Despite the 'character of his character', he was no straight man. Each episode has several intelligent witticisms or truly amusing wry comments from Don.

The series stayed remarkably consistent through the entire run, in my opinion never 'jumping the shark', as so many long running sitcoms are prone to.

Don and Ann set a good example for a mature and caring relationship, even in the face of comedy script episodes and antics.

Highly recommended.
