She’s everything that every girl should be!

On this day in 1966, That Girl starring Marlo Thomas premiered on ABC. 

[“Ann helps Donald get a story about a famous opera singer, if only he can control his romantic urges.”]

…and, that same night, Star Trek premiered on NBC.

But wait! That halcyon evening featured yet another premiere, The Tammy Grimes Show, which didn’t last out the month.

Born on this day in 1841 composer Antonín Dvorak.
