In 1977, Norman Lear and the weirdos behind “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” bring to life the alternate universe of “All That Glitters,” a soapy spoof where the gender roles are reversed, as explained by the showʹs theme: “As time went by this groom and bride followed the instructions and multiplied.

She wore the mail, he wore the veil, her head was crowned, his feet were bound, heʹd concubine and walk behind, she was, pardon the expression, the mastermind. So is it any wonder why the men complain when since the dawn of time, itʹs been a womanʹs domain?” Lois Nettleton and Eileen Brennan are among the high-powered females, Linda Gray is a transsexual model, and the lower class males include Danny Devito and sexually harassed secretary Gary Sandy.
