Storyline

In this test pilot, Ann's parents are played by different actors, Ted Bessell plays Don Blue Sky, her agent who is also her boyfriend, and Ann has a group of three girlfriends. Don thinks that Ann should change her name from Ann Marie to a more suitable stage name because every time he tells people her name, they ask "'Ann Marie' what?". Ann is hesitant because she knows that it would upset her parents, particularly her father. As she predicted, her father becomes very angry and will not speak to her unless she keeps her name. This episode was later changed to include the different actors and characters, and is episode 1.11 of the first season. Both versions are available on the Season 1 DVD set. Written by A Girl

Trivia

When Anne's friends are trying to come up with a pseudonym, Sharon suggests using "Theda Bara". They all seem to recognize the name but reject it. Theda was a famous actress during the silent film era who retired from making movies just before talkies came into existence. Most of her films have been lost, mostly due to a studio fire and neglect. See more »
