It's time once again for "What was on TV" and we pick up where we left off on our last issue. This week's cover features Mary Tyler Moore and child actress Lisa Gerritsen.
Along with Pamelyn Ferdin and Kim Richards, Lisa Gerritsen completed the triumvirate of 1970's television child actresses you recognized, but never really associated with a particular character. You just knew them.
Set the Dial to "Groovy".
Lisa, whose hound dog eyes could express a multitude of emotions, won the hearts of many a boy of a certain age who saw her as an accessible and potentially obtainable (if only in their dreams) girlfriend as is evidenced by this Chicago Tribune article.
Lisa dropped out of the acting business by the late '70's and for all appearances (or lack thereof) lead an ordinary life out of the limelight and prefers it that way.
Seeing that advertising council ad line, reminds me of this famous commercial. By the way, the actor, "Iron Eyes Cody" wasn't a Native American at all. His real name was Espera Oscar de Corti and he was the son of Sicilian immigrants.
I spent a week in the hospital last September. I wish the cost was $65-a-day.
Suzanne Somers makes an appearance on a discussion panel tv show called "Man Trap" above. I didn't know she was in anything prior to "American Graffitti". There isn't much information on the show and just this lone picture on the internet.
And that concludes this episode of "What's on TV". Stay tuned.
