September 5, 2019

Robert Thompson, trustee professor and director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, was interviewed by NPR for its story “Valerie Harper, Who Played Beloved TV Sidekick Rhoda, Dies At 80.”

"Rhoda and Mary, when they were on stage together, even though they weren't dancing, it was kind of like watching [Fred] Astaire and [Ginger] Rogers. They just worked perfectly together," said Thompson.
