No one keeps this impish, delightful genie bottled up - she's back for another season. Barbara Eden stars as the genial genie with Larry Hagman in the role of her harassed, latter day Aladdin. See more »
The role of the commanding general in I Dream of Jeannie (1965), first Barton MacLane (who portrayed General Peterson over 35 episodes from 1965 to 1969), and second Vinton Hayworth (who portrayed General Schaeffer over 20 episodes from 1969 to 1970), was not only the last role that each of these actors portrayed during their careers, but it was also their dying role, as each of these actors died during the time that episodes were being filmed. In the case of Hayworth as General Schaeffer, the series had already been canceled, so the commanding general role did not need to be recast a second time. See more »
In the world of the 50s and 60s silly sitcoms, this is an except, a colorful and exciting show. Barbara Eden is very good at her role, Larry Hagman is better actor here than in "Dallas" or another serieses. The best is Bill Daily's Maj. Healey, but I like the late Hayden Rorke's suspicious Dr. Bellows too. When I saw the series' episodes first time I got a laughing-stock. It is fantastic! The first and second seasons are perfect, the third and fourth are good, but the fifth is a silly, American family sitcom. After Jeannie marries her master, the series goes wrong. But except for those 20 episodes, the whole series is my favorite sitcom of all times!
