getTV Honors Mary Tyler Moore on Mon., Jan. 30 at 11 p.m. ET

 

getTV PAYS TRIBUTE TO MARY TYLER MOORE WITH A SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF HER UNFORGETTABLE APPEARANCES ON THE 1969 SPECIAL DICK VAN DYKE AND THE OTHER WOMAN, AND THE RARE 1960 CRIME SERIES JOHNNY STACCATO, ON MON, JAN. 30 STARTING AT 11 P.M. ET/8 P.M. PT

CULVER CITY, CA – Wednesday, January 25, 2017 – getTV celebrates the life and legacy of trailblazing television icon Mary Tyler Moore with special broadcasts of her appearance on the 1969 special DICK VAN DYKE AND THE OTHER WOMAN, and her early guest spot in a 1960 episode of the rare crime drama JOHNNY STACCATO, airing Monday, January 30 at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT. With her trademark smile and sharp timing, Moore rose to fame playing the wife of comedy legend Dick Van Dyke on the beloved 1961 sitcom THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW. However, it was her lead role on the 1970 series THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW that secured her place in entertainment history and completely revolutionized the way modern women were portrayed on television. Moore passed away today, January 25, at the age of 80. 

The tribute begins with the 1969 variety special DICK VAN DYKE AND THE OTHER WOMAN, which reunites the beloved duo for a night of laughs and music featuring a salute to the American woman; as well as a sidesplitting dance number on crutches; and a skit that imagines the pair as a bride and groom decoration on top of a wedding cake; culminating in a rare alternate scene from THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW. Moore’s appearance on this unforgettable special would ultimately set the stage for the actress to take the world by storm on THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW, as Moore and her then-husband successfully pitched the idea for a new sitcom to CBS following her well-received turn on DICK VAN DYKE AND THE OTHER WOMAN.

Then, stay tuned for Moore in an early guest role at 12 a.m. ET, appearing in a 1960 episode of the classic crime series JOHNNY STACCATO, starring John Cassavetes as the titular piano-playing private eye. In the episode, dubbed “The Mask Of Jason,” Moore plays a contestant in a beauty pageant who turns to Staccato for help when her life is threatened by a mysterious disfigured man. At the time of her appearance on JOHNNY STACCATO, Moore could also be seen in her first starring role as Sam on the third season of the similarly-themed drama RICHARD DIAMOND, PRIVATE DETECTIVE, starring David Janssen.
