Then, she appeared in many TV series such as ‘The many loves of Dobie Gillis,’ ‘Thriller,’ ‘The Joey Bishop Show,’ ‘Bonanza,’ and some others, but none of them could really touch the success figures.

The biggest breakthrough of her career came in 1965 when she came as independent and ambitious ‘Ann Mare’ in the TV sitcom ‘That Girl.’ The series lasted for five years, and in these five years, Marlo became a household name in the industry from an unknown name.

As the series ‘That Girl’ ended, Marlo came with another TV series ‘Free to be…You and Me,’ which was again a smash hit. This TV series had bolstered the image of Marlo as an actress.
