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.
