  1. 5*’s for “The Green Girl”

    Posted by Wayne A. Warrick on 19th Aug 2014

    “The Green Girl” keeps your attention throughout because of it’s professionalism and it’s the most informative documentary on this independent and beautiful actress. From start to finish, it’s a work of art about a true work of art that never really achieved the heights she was capable of. Whether the industry held her back or she held herself back matters little now. Anybody that has seen her work knows she was very capable of so much more in her personal and professional life. I want to thank everyone involved in the making of ‘The Green Girl” documentary. It is a true work of art that was long overdue.

  2. The Green Girl: Golden From Start To Finish

    Posted by Raymond Harper on 15th Aug 2014

    An outstanding work compiled by the producer, writers and director. The mix of interviews from people who knew and worked with Ms. Oliver with film clips of her work figuratively bring Ms. Oliver back from death. I use the phrase “back from death” with a bit of trepidation because I believe that in death she is at peace, with no physical suffering. Yet, for us, the living, looking back at a life lived as productive as hers simply encourages us to do our best.

    Technically, the DVD is perfect: sound, video, etc. The running pace of the documentary leaves little to be desired.

    A+ is my grade.

  3. One of the Greats

    Posted by Robin Jones on 15th Aug 2014

    We now live in a time where there is no Susan Oliver appearing on television and we are lesser for it. Like other documentaries on character actors, “The Green Girl” shows the viewer a subject too undeservedly obscure for “Inside the Actor’s Studio” or the old A&E show “Biography”. As fascinating as it is to cover just how much she worked in her heyday, I wish there had been more time spent on her aviation and directing pursuits.

    And I wish there were more documentaries (ala this or “That Guy… Who Was In That Thing” or “That Guy Dick Miller”) on actors just like her. We need documentaries about the Jenette Nolan’s, Nina Talbot’s and Barbara Rhodes’ of the business.

  4. MUCH more comprehensive than I expected

    A treasure trove of video clips from classic TV and Film. Many many interviews add to the full picture of this wonderful and talented woman’s life. A must have DVD!

  5. Excellent movie for Star Trek & Scif-fi fans

    A very well researched movie about Susan Oliver-actress, pilot, writer, director and all around nice person. It’s so nice to see her story on the screen, I just wish that I had known more about her when she was alive. I bought 6 copies for gifts. A very nice movie created with much hard work from George Pappy and crew. I’m curious to see what his next movie will be.


Well, all I can say is it’s very gratifying to finally have the movie out there and to see that it’s reaching and affecting people exactly the way I’d hoped it would from the moment I first decided to start this project three years ago.  Thank you to everyone involved, from our supporters to our interviewees, and everyone who put time and effort into making this extensive project possible.

And for those of you who haven’t seen The Green Girl yet, maybe you really should!

P.S. Check out this really cool collage I pulled together a few months ago for the back cover of the DVD box.  Some of these pictures come straight from Susan Oliver’s collection and have not been seen publicly in over 50 years (if ever).  Pretty neat!

    A few years ago (about 2012) on the internet, I saw a photo of Susan Oliver on the studio lot. It pictured her with a 1958-1960 thunderbird. I assume it was hers. However that photo is nowhere to be found on the internet.
    Can anyone direct me to it?

    • The only thing I can think of is a picture I’ve seen before of her with the cast of Your Cheatin’ Heart and the real Audrey Williams posed around a convertible T-Bird (more like an early 1960’s model, when the car got bulkier). Could that be what you’re thinking of?
