Of course, her role as secretary Margaret in 9 to 5 is what many remember her for as she stole every scene she was in. Pope even talks about her role in the show in her memoir Atta Girl: Tales from a Life in the Trenches of Show Business. “It was a good movie and a good part. At the end, my character comes back from rehab, hair combed, looking spiffy and ready for the sequel,” she writes. “Underdogs climbing to the top is a fine formula, and it’s always good to be in at the end of a film so people remember you were in it.”
