Icon15 YOWZA! That Green Dress Mary Wore Was Something Else!!!

All I could say is wow! I know the dress was suppose to get a laugh out of the audience, but it was very sexy. Especially for Mary Richards standards! What is everybody's opinions on "the dress?" lol

The episode involved an ex-prostitute who Mary was trying to help leave "that life". Mary suggested the woman take up dress-making. She did - thus the concoction Mary is trying not to fall out of!! The dubious dressmaker was played by Barbara Colby, whose two appearances on TMTMS led to her winning a role on the spinoff Phyllis. Sadly, after filming only a couple of episodes, Barbara Colby and a friend were murdered after leaving an acting class. The killers were never caught.

The nightie that Mary wore in the hospital when she had her tonsil out was a lot sexier than this dress.

Yes. At the time, Barbara Colby was estranged from her husband, who was the son of Ethel Merman.

Here are some photos of Mary in the aforementioned nightie (a gift from Rhoda, who snuck it in Mary's bag and took out Mary's flannel PJ's when Mary wasn't looking, !):

I just saw this episode the other day on Me-TV! Mary's roomate at the hospital (played by character actress Pat Carroll) mistook Mary for a go-go dancer because of that nightie!

I remember watching that green dress episode as a kid and feeling...suddenly different about Mary somehow!

And Ted's lecherous reaction is funny...but creepy!
