Sally Field stars as America's favorite teen! Sand, surf, fun, and plenty of boys all combined to make Gidget one of most memorable TV series of the 1960s, as well as launching the career of Sally Field.
Were you one of the people excited to see Gidget
on a DVD shelf, only to be disappointed when you discovered it was a DVD package with the Gidget
, Gidget Goes Hawaiian
and Gidget Goes to Rome
(the 1959-63 films starring Sandra Dee, Deborah Walley or Cindy Carol as the surfer girl, which inspired the 1965 TV show)? Well, this should help cheer you up!
Sony has announced that they'll bring all 32 episodes (768 mins) of Gidget - The Complete Series
to DVD in this 4 disc set. The DVD will contain the original full frame (1.33:1) transfer, along with an English mono soundtrack. Extras will include "A Look Back at Gidget" (includes an interview with Sally Field), and the original pilot episode. This $39.95 SRP set will be available on March 21
, the same day as another Sally Field show is released; The Flying Nun
(see our separate news story about that).
There were a lot of recognizable guest stars during the show's run. You'll spot Harvey Korman, Bonnie Franklin, Barbara Hershey, Mako, Walter Koenig, Daniel J. Travanti, Richard Dreyfuss, and Paul Lynde! Here's an early look at the cover art for this release (subject to change):
