The THAT GIRL Marathon Continues

THANKS for indulging me as we go back forty years to look at one of the trendiest boot wearers ever.  Someone made a comment that Marlo reminded him of Annalee Penny. Besides the physical similarities, there's also all of the funny, expressive faces and the awesome boot collection.

I have to tell you, if you were going to invest in a DVD featuring lots of boots, you could do a lot worse than picking up a DVD of Season Five of That Girl

Marlo Thomas Boots Up For Reeeg

YES, that is a much younger Regis Philbin, to our right.
Who knows? Maybe it was Marlo that first 
piqued Regis' interest in tall boots.
I have no proof to back this up but I distinctly remember watching Live with Regis and Kathie Lee and they had a guest on wearing thigh high boots. Regis remarked to the guest (can't for the life of me remember who it was for sure) that he LOVED tall boots.
Kathie Lee said something like 'I know, they won't let me wear them anymore'. This must have been the early to mid 1990s and Kathie Lee had worn OTKs and Thigh Highs quite a bit. Who the 'they' was, I don't know.
