From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney were best friends and roommates coping with dates, neighbors, and each other During the late '50s and early '60s they worked as bottlecappers for Shotz Brewery in Milwaukee. They moved to Burbank, California in 1965 to start a new life when they got replaced at the brewery by an automated bottlecapper. Written by
Frustrated at TV shows constantly repeating who the characters are and what they do, Penny Marshall came up with the idea of Laverne having L's on all her clothes, figuring that would solve the problem. To her chagrin, they still had to say on a regular basis who was who and where the girls worked; she got tired of all the times Cindy Williams would say 'Laverne' in an episode. See more »
In the final three seasons, when Laverne and Shirley move to California, the exterior apartment house shots do not match the set's floor plan- specifically the bedroom and kitchen. The outside shows the bedroom is above the living room, but inside it is in the direction of stage right. The kitchen extends beyond the living room, stage left, and from the outside it just shows that the building ends at the living room. See more »
When this show started out, it was hilarious and stayed that way for many years, but when the show moved to setting to California, it lost that special magic that it had. Also, what hurt the show is when Cindy Williams left the show--it just was not funny with Penny Marshall trying to carry the show alone. Phil Foster was one of, if not the worst, actor ever on a regular television show. He talked as he had a mouthful of mush!! Whoever said that he was funny or could even act?? Heck, anyone can act like him--all you have to do is say "What, Who, Where" in a loud voice with your tongue hanging out of your mouth!! There!! You have just done an inpersonation of Frank De Fazio--lol
