Default Millie

Boy was the Millie character irritating. I am not sure what the purpose was of having Steve have a 15 year old girl working for him.

You're entitled to your opinion, I support that, but hopefully you are as young as the opinion, first the character was added to support a revamped now in it's 5th season dying series that had a major cast change, network change and tho Shirley was outstanding she was loosing interest. Hence a series adds young cast members to attract younger viewers.

They saw something in who grew up to be the brillant beautiful actress Ann Jillian, if I have to explain any further, please other posters contribute to this thread!

Where is the "It's A Living" guy! LOL

She had been on before in a different character, so maybe someone in the production liked her. Hazel's character had always been a friend to teens or young adults, even when none were regulars on the show, so maybe they wanted one for her to interfere with.

Also, I think 1965 was a bit late for it, but probably into the 1950s it wouldn't be unusual for a young girl to take an office administration course in place of full high school. Answer phones, typing, shorthand, filing, maybe basic bookkeeping.

Good for those who like her, but I find Millie to be annoying and not needed.

As for the rest of the newcomers, I like Steve and Barbara as well as the neighbors, the Williams. Little Susie was cute.

Only thing I found odd is that she was a young secretary. Ann was 15 and her character had a lot of responsibility . Maybe her character was 18 or so for Millie was always there. If she was younger, was she a high school drop out!

I recently saw, I think in an early Steve episode, something where she said she was in school, too.

I didn't much like Ann's character at first, but she has definitely grown on me (as I watch multiple times). Ann's acting seems fine, especially for her age, and she interacts really well with Shirley Booth. It doesn't hurt that she's a cutie.

I remember the episode where Millie had a big crush on Steve {her boss** Steve took her out on a date to Observation Hill and parked to look at the city lights...Imagine what would happen today if a 30 something married man was on a date with a 15 year old girl!!!!

Ann is one of the few people still with us who was in the cast, along with Ray Fulmer and Julia Benjamin, unless I'm mistaken. The only regulars still living?
