Bonnie Franklin

Bonnie Franklin, best known for playing Ann Romano on the hit CBS sitcom One Day At A Time, has died at the age of 69.

Born in Santa Monica, CA, Franklin had gotten her start as an actress at the young age of 9, when she appeared on the popular program The Colgate Comedy Hour during the 1950s. She had done some theater work in the early part of her career as well. It wasn’t until landing the main role on One Day At A Time in 1975 that she found success.

That program, produced by Norman Lear, responsible for some of the adult-themed shows of the era (All in the Family, Maude, Sanford and Son to name a few), showed the divorced Ann Romano, played expertly and headstrong by Franklin, raising two teenagers and all the trials and tribulations being a struggling single mom looking to raise the two kids and all the various growing pains they go through. Valerie Bertinelli and Mackenzie Phillips played the younger and older daughters respectively. Pat Harrington Jr. played the wise-cracking yet respectful janitor with a heart of gold Schneider.

Mark Hamill One Day At A TimeOver the years, there’s been plenty of talk about the direction of Mark Hamill‘s career after his famous turn as Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy. Since the trilogy Hamill has gone on to do several unmemorable action-thriller films, tons of voice work (most notably as The Joker in the Batman animated universal), and a few turns guest-starring as himself in television shows like Just Shoot Me.

But does anyone remember Hamill’s roles pre-Star Wars: A New Hope?

I do! I do!

In late 1976, Hamill guest-starred on an episode of the sitcom One Day At A Time, where he played Harvey, the thieving nephew of building custodian Schneider, in an episode titled “Schneider’s Pride & Joy.” In the episode, he was visiting his uncle, helping him out with maintenance work in the apartment building, but it turns out he was actually stealing pricey items like tape recorders (ha ha, tape recorders!) and cameras from the residents.

You can watch the Minisode (a truncated version of the half-hour episode) right here below.
