Storyline

Jackie Cooper played Hennesey, a Navy doctor in an onshore office. Abby Dalton, very young and beautiful then, played his blonde yeoman/secretary/nurse. She had a crush on Hennesey but he maintained his professional dignity. Much of the series was about his gradually warming up to her interest until they were married in the final episode. Neither a drama nor a comedy, it was mostly a character study. The third regular character was a beefy Navy seaman who aspired to become an astronaut until Hennesey found he had an inner-ear defect & was ineligible. Written by Sean Fox <mailcall@kiva.net>

I worked with Don at KHJ-TV in Hollywood in the early 70's, and he said he "controlled" 'Hennesy,' and would NEVER let it be re-run. Being a pretty contentious guy he said he didn't need a reason, but I watched every episode and, believe me, it would hold up VERY WELL by today's TV standards (is that an oxymoron?) But seriously, folks, Hennesy, even though it is black and white, could, of course, be colorized; and I sincerely hope that his estate, or whomever owns the show now, would consider releasing it; at least on video...I would be the first customer in line for all 96 episodes. Thanks for letting me put in my 2c worth.
