In 1957, with a little help from Ronald Reagan — who was working at the same studio and happened to see the screen tests for the show, and recommended Noreen Corcoran over a rival actress — she won the starring role in the situation comedy Bachelor Father. For the next five years, Corcoran was practically the archetypal American girl, almost a distaff Beaver Cleaver in the role of Kelly Gregg, the orphaned 13-year-old being raised by her bachelor uncle Bentley Gregg (John Forsythe). She made the cover of magazines and became a popular young actress of the period, as America watched Corcoran’s character grow up from a gregarious, slightly awkward teenager into a poised and sophisticated young woman, with the series ending just as Kelly entered college.
