Ginger or Mary Ann Revisited

Natalie Schafer

This one is for the old folks out there. Remember when people used to argue whether they preferred Ginger or Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island? Well, just to be a dick, I used to say that I would pick Mrs. Howell, and that she was a handsome woman.

Well, I just came across an old picture of Natalie Schafer, the woman who played Mrs. Howell, and turns out that my judgment was sound.

So, the next time someone asks Ginger or Mary Ann, remember this picture before answering.
