I loved Gidget, but never connected Francie with her. Francie was supposed to be a British cousin,>
so I don't know who she'd be like. But I sort of thought of the London models of the time, slim and cute, with flips and wonderful clothes, pink lipstick... But Gidget is so American, I wouldn't have connected her with Francie at all. I still don't see a visual likeness, as Francie isn't as cute/silly in my mind, as Gidget. Loved the video!
This video reminds me of Francie for some reason. I heard somewhere that Ruth Handler named Francie after Sally Field since that show was brand new, and Gidget's name was Francis or (Francie as a nickname). I think I read it in the same article that Alan was the real husband of Barbie, and the Fashion Queen's outfit was made after Cleopatra's, but the Fashion Queen was made in 1963 and Cleopatra was made in 1965? I do believe that there was a Caesar / Cleo movie in 1946? Well, anyway here is the link below:
