Trivia

Every story in the series - and many of the "blackout" vignettes in between - featured a large, brass bed. This is probably an homage to The Bed (1968) by _James Broughton_, an experimental poet and filmmaker whose works were an influence on the Beat poets of the 1950s. "The Bed" is an award-winning 20 minute short that was filmed during the 1967 Summer of Love in San Francisco. It featured several nude men and women cavorting on a large, brass bed in a garden.

"Happy Days" pilot?
27 February 2003 | by (Albany, NY) – See all my reviews

I seem to remember a vignette that is supposed to take place in the 50's, possibly featuring Ron Howard, in which a girl to whom he's attracted expresses an interest in him when she discovers that his parents just bought a television set. This may have been the pilot (of sorts) for "Happy Days". Does this ring a bell, anyone? Thanks.
