      Finally grown up, Gidget Gets Married. It had to happen sometime, and it was just time to let Gidget and Moondoggie get together for real. Monie Ellis inherited the Gidget role for this movie from 1972. She’s good, but of all the Gidgets in all of the franchise, she’s probably the weakest and my least favorite. That isn’t to say

      that Ellis doesn’t do a fine job, because she does. She takes Gidget’s idealism and zest and takes into the next stage of life, as a new wife who is trying to support her husband, but who can’t lose sight of who she really is. She fights for what she believes in, and that gets her into a lot of trouble.

      Just ...

      • as Ellis is the weakest of the Gidgets, Michael Burns is the weakest of the Moondoggies. By the way, Moondoggie’s last name has changed yet again. Originally a Matthews, then a Griffin, now he’s a Stevens. Burns began young, getting his big break with Wagon Train. He’s a good enough actor and he matches Ellis in look and scope, but
        he’s not Moondoggie to me at all.

        Still a widower, Gidget’s dad is now played by MacDonald Carey. He’s good and more like Don Porter was in the TV series and third theatrical film.

        Gidget Gets Married is entertaining, but it’s the weakest of the series. Still, Gidget’s spirit reigns supreme in this movie, and that’s why we love Gidget in the first place.
