Trivia

The theme song was titled "Bows and Strings in Teasing" by Alexander Laszlo. It was originally written the Republic film The French Key (1946). Other musical cues were supplied through David Chudnow's MUTEL Music for Television Library. There was no original music created for this show, although Laszlo did a new arrangement of his theme for this series, which is now known as the "My Little Margie" Theme. See more »

The Delightful Gale Storm and Cute Little Old Lady, Gertrude Hoffman.
18 May 2007 | by nnepreviloSee all my reviews

Someone said that Margie was almost 30 and still living at home. Actually Gale Storm was playing a 21 year old "taking care" of her "old" father, played by silent screen star, Charles Farrell.

I've bought three of the DVD boxes so far and have enjoyed these episodes in between watching the antics of Joan Davis in "I Married Joan." I enjoy these shows much better than the junk they call comedies on today's TV.

In "Margie," I especially love the episodes with Gertrude Hoffman, who lives across the hall from the Albrights and plays Margie's 'Ethel Mertz' even though she is probably in her 80s! She's a hip old lady who'd look quite comfortable riding a hog with a Hell's Angel.

Once Margie said to Mrs. Odets (Hoffman), "Mrs. Odets, you still have that "certain something" that draws men to you." Odets smiles slyly and says, "Yes, Margie, but I've had it a long, LONG time."

Gertrude Hoffman brings to mind her wonderful performance in the movie "Caged," where she played "Millie, the old lifer." After the prison matron draws her hand back to slap Millie, she stares up at her and says, "Hit me, and I'll put your lights out." And she MEANT it! Why she wasn't nominated for an Oscar for that I'll never know.

Gale Storm is still living as this is being written. If she ever comes to IMDb, I want her to know that I loved her on both of her series, this one and "Oh, Susanna!" Also, I have on video, her surprise by Ralph Edwards when he featured her on This Is Your Life. Gale, you were beautiful and a delight to watch.

Trivia: "My Little Margie" was a summer replacement for "I Love Lucy" and was such a hit with the public, the network picked it up and gave it its own time slot.
