I've been listening to the audio book Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted by Jennifer Keishin Armstong, which is all about the making of the brilliant Mary Tyler Moore show. Over the weekend, I was enthralled with the talk about the theme song, so today, I just wanted to post that video and remember that great song.
Of course, my favorite part of it is the very end, where Mary throws her hat up into the air. The director of the video told Mary to throw the hat up into the sky, pretending it was the absolute best day of her life. She did it in one take. That hat represents Mary's optimistic outlook, but also, her rebellion. She's gonna make it on her own!
