    Never noticed, but probably because I was always staring straight at Ginger.

    A good thing that this hasn't morphed into a "Ginger vs. Maryanne" debate.

    Haven't been able to watch that show since the 70s. I try but then do the math and figure out how old Ginger and Maryann are and it ruins it for me.

    Actually it's the 4th wall. Since the camera represents the viewer, the background in the scene represents the other 3 walls like a stage.

    I've been watching a lot of Gilligan's Island lately and did note that the skipper looked into the camara but never really connected it as a deliberate stare.

    As for the Mary Ann - Ginger thing I read a thread somewhere that summed it up pretty well. Pretty Vs.cute. Mary Ann being a few years younger was considered the cute one. It worked for me.

    Looking into the camera certainly brings the audience closer as if they were a part of it.
    Oh and Mary Ann. Hands down.

    Look at Ginger's hair. She could stand right next to Fred Schneider and do the backup vocals on Private Idaho.

    Oh, I've made up my mind about Ginger and Mary Ann. I've decided I can't make up my mind. [​IMG] :lol:
