STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Remember “That Girl,” the 1960s sitcom starring Marlo Thomas as a temp girl waiting for her break in show business?

Meet the only girl at “That Girl” during a free livestream at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 25.

Peggy Elliott Goldwyn broke ground as a scriptwriter in TV comedy in the 1960s and ‘70s—the only young woman in a boys club

She worked for 20 years, producing scripts for “That Girl,” “Love, American Style,” “Happy Days,” “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” and “The Odd Couple.”

“That Girl,” Goldwyn notes, was TV’s first sitcom about a young single woman. And her work on “The Odd Couple” was named one of the top 100 best comedy scripts for TV by the Writers Guild of America.

Goldwyn moved to Sun Valley in 2004 and quickly established herself as a moving force in the community.

She founded The Family of Woman Film Festival 12 years ago, showing films documenting women’s plights and successes around the world. She produced Our Moveable Feast for three years, raising funds for The Community Library with a glamorous evening of food and drink in rooms decorated to match such books as “The Joy Luck Club” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

She also has served on the boards of The Advocates, Wood River Women’s Foundation and the Andrus Center for Public Policy at Boise State University.

Goldwyn’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A. Join in at https://livestream.com/comlib
