horizontal line

An informative, entertaining, funny, well-paced documentary that chronicles the extraordinary life and legendary career of the "first lady of television" and Emmy-winning Gertrude "Tilly" Berg, who astonishingly wrote more than 12,000 scripts, through radio broadcast snippets from her role as Molly Goldberg in The Rise of the Goldbergs; from her endorsement of consumer goods (such as jigsaw puzzles, house dresses, cookbooks, and comic strips); black-and-white film clips from the 1959 Broadway play A Majority of One and television shows The Goldbergs and Molly; and interviews with actors (such as Viola Harris, Larry Robinson, Arlene McQuade, Ed Asner, Jack Urbont, Madeline Gilford, and Anna Berger), artist Mindy Weisel, journalist Andrea Roane, historians Robert Thompson and Joyce Antler, producers Gary David Goldberg and Norman Lear, NPR correspondent Susan Stamberg, friend Judith Abrams, family members (such as Adam Berg, Dr. David Schwartz, and Anne and Henry Schwartz), screenwriter Margaret Nagle, editor Ann Kantor, and biographer Glenn Smith, Jr.
