Museum of the Moving Image to Welcome Marlo Thomas, 10/7
by BWW News Desk - Sep 18, 2014

Before the words "women's liberation" became a cultural catchphrase, Marlo Thomas embodied the term, creating, executive producing, and starring in the landmark television comedy series That Girl (1966-1971). Her creation-single working girl Ann Marie, who lived on her own and was avoiding marriage, much to her father's dismay-became a role model for a new generation of women searching for independence and their own careers. On Tuesday, October 7, 2014, at 7:00 p.m., Museum of the Moving Image and the Comedy Hall of Fame will present a conversation with Marlo Thomas, moderated by Gloria Steinem, in the program "The Visionary: Ann Marie, TV's First Independent Woman," about the creation and legacy of That Girl.
