Young female surfers have been nicknamed 'Gidget' for more than 50 years. Yet the true story of Kathy Kohner, the real 'Gidget,' has never been thoroughly explored until now. Her experiences as a teenage girl surfing Malibu in the mid-1950s, as told to her writer father, Frederick Kohner, became the basis for a best-selling novel, a string of movies and several TV series. They also spurred a international cultural phenomenon. "Accidental Icon", a film by Brian Gillogly, is a touching look at a unique father/daughter relationship. Gidget's story is a beacon of emerging "Girl Power" that has resonated greatly in women's lives and in international sports. Kathy Kohner's experiences capture our enduring love for our coast and for surfing. Hers is a real California story come to life.
