TURN THE PAGE WHEN YOU HEAR..."That Girl" @ 13 November 2010 11:07 AM
Another startling little discovery for Disney record fans.
In an episode called "To Each Her Own" in the second season of That Girl, Ann (Marlo Thomas, who by the way recently published her autobiography) discovers Donald (Ted Bessell) having lunch with his computer-matched date, a lovely model who is very much like Ann.
The model's name is "Lisa Stevens," played onscreen by actress/dancer/choreographer Suzanne Charney, who made numerous film and TV appearances but whose speaking voice is not heard in this scene. (This sort of thing happens when an actors's dialogue is marred by noise of some other issue. On Gilligan's Island, early episodes were filmed by a noisy freeway and much dialogue was "looped" in this way.)
Perhap Ms. Charney was not available to replace her own dialogue or the there wasn't time. Because as anyone who knows the original Disneyland Book and Record sets (or Rankin/Bass' Santa Claus is Comin' to Town) will immediately recognize, "Lisa's" offscreen voice is completed dubbed by none other than your beloved Disneyland Story Reader / Jessica Claus herself, Robie Lester. I've submitted it to the imdb.
For you, Robie.
