Trivia

One show story line involved an airplane. The scenario involved a vintage biplane which crashes on a barren mountain top, the pilot jumping from the cockpit, off the bottom wing, onto the ground, running for safety from the burning biplane. A yellow vintage biplane was located for the aerial takeoff and flight photography, including the biplane's falling smoking descent towards the ground. An airplane salvage yard located in Fresno provided an airplane fuselage, two pairs of wings, and was trucked to the show's stage facility, where the construction crew prepared the airplane parts, to assemble on the remote mountain top location sight. Larry Verne, the construction coordinator, and his crew had to grade and build a road into the mountain top location for all the production vehicles to drive onto the top of the mountain hill sight location. The transportation captain provided a water reservoir tanker truck to put out the fire after the scene had been staged and photographed. The pilot owner of the hero vintage yellow biplane, valued (in 1982) at $75,000.00, had volunteered to let the construction crew prop and angle his vintage "hero yellow biplane", raising the tail section twelve feet in the air, allowing special effects to build a fire beneath the plane, for the filming sequence. The production designer, Hub Braden and Larry Verne did not trust the effects team. The assembled parts duplicated the biplane based upon photographs provided by the biplane owner. On the arrival of the "hero biplane", the construction crew copied the distinct biplane's tail section wings in plywood, attaching the pieces on sight. When the company began filming the crash and fire sequence, the director insisted on filming the pilot's escape jump three times. The brush which surrounded the crash sight started a slow burn. After the third retake, the water reservoir tanker truck's battery was dead, nor could the water tanker be moved to put out the fire underneath the "hero biplane" mock-up. The prop biplane completely burned up. The prop biplane was beyond salvage. Instead of a Fresno Air Salvage rental, the show bought the airplane parts. See more »

Wholesome show that is still relevant
3 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I admit, I loved this show because I loved the original musical, but I was sad to see it go away to be kept in some dust-covered bin in a Hollywood storage vault! Regardless of all my friends teasing me because they thought it was a "corny show", I couldn't wait to see each episode! (I was raised by my grandparents so perhaps that's why I've always been drawn to the more reserved, wholesome, and yes, sometimes "corny" stuff.) I wish some studio exec would recognize that there are plenty of networks out there now (ie: Hallmark, ABC Family, Nic....) that have the perfect format for shows like this. If there had been more than just the "Big three" networks around when the show was produced, it would have had a better chance. But it's sad to think of it wasting away when it could be entertaining and influencing a new (and not-so-new) audience.
