Gidget Gets Married
The next-to-last screen adventure of Gidget. In this pilot film, Gidget has finally been married off, and rebels against the social caste system in her husband's company. Monie Ellis, daughter of veteran actress Mona Freeman, followed a long line of up-and-coming actresses in the starring role: Sandra Dee (1959), Deborah Walley (1961), Cindy Carol (1963), Sally Field (1965 TV series), and Karen Valentine (1969 TV movie). Like one or two of her predecessors, Monie Ellis seems to have vanished from the show business scene.
