Narrated by Jorja Fox (CSI) and produced by Brian L. Gillogly and Master Communication, the documentary explores the largely untold story of the real "Gidget," Kathy Kohner Zuckerman, and how her account of surfing Malibu in the mid-50's became the basis for a best-selling novel by her father Frederick Kohner. A half century later, "Gidget" is celebrated as an enduring Hollywood movie/TV franchise and a slice of Americana, with considerable impact on popular culture and the sport of surfing.
"Accidental Icon: The Real Gidget Story" includes interviews with: Kathy Kohner Zuckerman (Gidget); Actors Sally Field, Cliff Robertson (Kahuna), James Darren (Moondoggie), Gregory Harrison (Ed, North Shore); Legends Jericho Poppler Bartlow, Lance Carson, Mike Doyle, Mickey Munoz; and Pro Surfers Layne Beachly, Summer Romero, Kassia Meador, Ashley Lloyd, Belen Kimble, Carla Rowland and more.
Surfrider & MSA are proud to celebrate Gidget's story and the history of Malibu surfing for this one-time special evening.
100% of the event proceeds will go towards Surfrider and MSA's mission for Clean Water in Malibu. For more info please visit: www.surfriderwlam.org.
"Its a blast from the past! A story showcasing an eclectic group of surfers, then and now, and Kathy `Gidget Kohner, the surfer who spawned a whole movement of Surfer Girls and liberated a whole generation of young women. The film has cross-over demographics and charms audiences of all ages."
-Lin Bolen Wendkos, former NBC VP
