Trivia

The role that Cleavon Little played, Dr. Jerry Noland, was not originally written for a black actor. Frankie Avalon and John Rubinstein were among the actors considered for the role. (The beach movies that Avalon had appeared in with Annette Funicello were directed by William Asher, the producer and occasional director of "Temperatures Rising".) However, Asher's wife, Elizabeth Montgomery, spotted Little doing a guest appearance in an episode of All in the Family (1971), and then recommended him to her husband. Likewise, Montgomery also recommended Nancy Fox to Asher after spotting Fox in a toothpaste commercial. See more »

Gimme' a break Lynde?
3 October 2014 | by (Hayward CA) – See all my reviews

I could not understand why Lynde was brought in. He was coming off his own show which was a disaster and killed two successful series by producers trying to make him a star player. Frankly, I NEVER thought the guy was funny. Cleavon Little however (RIP) had a track record of GREAT laughs.

ABC did a lot of show tampering a lot then. Take a show that was popular, tamper with it and destroy it. They not only caused shows to "jump the shark", they provided the ocean and the shark! If somebody has the original film (tapes?) they should publish them. ME TV? Here is a great candidate for your line up!
