Did You Know?

Trivia

Because Michael Ansara did such a convincing portrayal of Cochise, and because of his somewhat Indian-sounding name, many viewers thought he actually was an Indian. In reality, he was born in Syria and his parents, while American citizens, were from Egypt. See more »

The Breaking of the Arrow
4 July 2005 | by (Bakersfield, California USA) – See all my reviews

I don't remember watching a single episode all the way through each program but I do remember in the opening of the series I'd see somebody breaking an arrow, when I was a youngster and whenever I saw my Grandpa Tony breaking a pound of spaghetti in half before putting it in the pot of boiling water it would remind me of the opening to the show Broken Arrow and I'd say, "BROKEN ARROW". Grandpa would say, "Yes! Broken Arrow!" I'm sure it was a pretty good show. I'm surprised that they don't show old reruns of it on TV as they do with Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Could it be available on VHS or DVD? If anybody knows, please do tell me and I'll be very much obliged. But this evening I was cooking spaghetti for dinner tonight and just like my Grandpa I broke the whole pound of spaghetti strands in half and I murmured, "BROKEN ARROW!"
