Ann Marie is a struggling actress living in New York City. In between trying to find jobs acting and modeling she has time for her boyfriend, Don Hollinger, and her dad, Lew Marie.Written by
The show actually used three separate opening themes during its run. Season 1 was a more subdued instrumental opening, also with a different video sequence. Seasons 2-4 was the now-familiar more upbeat, jazzy swinging instrumental style; finally, sung lyrics were added in the 5th (last) season's version, to give the opening a similar, deeper context, in the wake of the new, very successful Mary Tyler Moore Show's first season the previous year. The well-regarded Earle Hagen wrote all the music for the opening themes. Besides writing the themes to numerous other shows, Hagen is most notable for writing the tune to, and whistling the theme for, the Andy Griffith Show. See more »
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).

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 »
How that girl made me feel so hopeful and excited about love life as a teen girl
I Have been watching that girl on metv in Denver Colorado, and thank god that girl Marlo Thomas has re-awakened such loving memories and feelings! i even love the theme song!I i grew up in the 70's and as a teen no matter how crummy my days were that girl Marlo AND Ted were really encouraging for me. my looking forward to such a loving relationship they both had, and i really could feel the love they both exuded on TV. I looked forward to growing up and moving out and being independent and selecting my own clothes and style
even today at 57 years old as of 6-12-2015 i am still looking for that type of love relationship Ted and Marlo portrayed. better yet i am still working on being the type of woman i want to be regardless of the harsh realities of love and life disappointments.
I had no idea Ted died back in 1996. their love and friendship was so heartfelt for me, and i wonder how close if at all they were after the show...finally the story writing and presenting was so cleaver, how the credits were in the opening of the show, in stop sign fashion, man i long for that creativity in the shows of today...and if i had 1/2 the relationship she had with her father on that girl, i might not have needed so much therapy..thank you that girl, you made a difference in my life, and god bless your heart and soul Ted....you are missed.love you both from the 420 state of Colorado
