I was told she was made to resemble That Girl Marlo Thomas.>>
A lot of tv characters resembled Francie's clothing style including The Girl From uncle. It was a trend everyone copied even me.
I heard that someone asked Ruth Handler, and she said Francie was named after Gidget or Sally Field? It seems like she would be, because Gidget came out in 1965 (tv 1965 not the movie 1959), and ended in 1966 just after Francie came out. Gidget was called Francis by her sister, and her dad called her Francie or (Francine when her dad was mad). If you look at her, she does resemble Sally Field, and her clothes resemble Francie's, like polka dots & rain drops, and the bridge bit, etc... Anyone hear of this?
