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. 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

Does anybody remember which episode was done without talking? This was a milestone, set by one other series during this time. 77 Sunset Strip also did an episode without talking, the only sound at the end was a dog barking. It was written up in TV guide. I have forgotten the names of each of these incredible episodes and would appreciate any leads on them. Roger Smith was the star in the 77 Sunset Strip episode. In the Hennesey episode the whole ensemble was in it. Also, does anybody know where if DVD's of 77 Sunset Strip and Hennessey have been issued? Also, People's Choice was a great ensemble and funny show. Does anybody know if that show is available in DVD. And does anybody have current information about Jackie Cooper? As for Roger Smith, the husband of Ann Margeret, I actually flew with them when their cast was flying to Tahoe for one of her shows, back in 1979. Both of them were most gracious.
