NEWS: First Trailer for Susan Oliver Documentary ‘Green Girl’ Drops

To millions of Star Trek fans, she was The Green Girl. Horror Fans may remember her from episodes of Rod Serling’s legendary ‘Night Gallery’ (1972) or, more recently, The TV series ‘Freddy’s Nightmares’ (1988). For the first generation ever raised on television, she was so much more. Director George A. Pappy Jr. set out to document the life and career of Susan Oliver. After a successful crowd funding campaign for ‘The Green Girl’ we now have the first official trailer for you inside.
‘The Green Girl’ is a feature-length documentary about Star Trek’s iconic Green Girl, Susan Oliver. With over 120 major acting credits in film and television, she was literally a household name in the 1960’s. She set a number of well-publicized records as a pilot and was an original member of the AFI Directing Workshop for Women. She also become one of only a handful of women to direct major TV shows in the 1980’s, like M*A*S*H. And yet many people don’t even remember her name today.
Her image has appeared in the end credits of Star Trek re-runs on a near-daily basis since the late 1960′s and it’s no coincidence that Gene Roddenberry sought her out to play the pivotal role in the pilot episode of his ground-breaking new television series. Arriving in Hollywood at the very end of the old studio system, she made her mark in a handful of notable films but never quite broke out as a huge star. Yet, Susan Oliver became one of the most photographed women of her era, the female television guest star of choice between 1957 and 1973.
But that is only art of the story that is her life: She was a record-setting female aviator in the 1960′s and 1970′s, having flown across the Atlantic Ocean in 1967 in a single-engine plane. And she was one of the first women to ever fly a Lear Jet.

A release date for ‘The Green Girl’ has not officially been announced at the time of this writing.
