Patty Duke starred in The Patty Duke Show as Patty and Cathy Lane which lasted from 1963 to 1966.
Pictured here is Patty Duke, who held two starring roles in The Patty Duke Show as Patty and Cathy Lane. The show was created as a vehicle for the rising star and ran from 1963 to 1966, for a total of 105 episodes.

The show’s synopsis reads: “Cathy Lane, teen-aged daughter of a globe-trotting journalist, comes to live at the home of her uncle, a newspaper editor in New York City. Curiously, Cathy is the spitting image of her uncle's daughter, Patty. Appearances aside, however, the urbane Cathy is nothing like her cousin Patty, who is the typical American teenager.”
