Another script, "The Rescue", centered around a ten passenger turboprop Beechcraft aircraft, which crashes in the high Sierra mountain range, with the family of seven brothers rescuing the pilot and passengers. Requesting information about the airplane from the Beechcraft Company in Ohio, required sending the script for an approval for the production company to use any Beechcraft airplanes. The Production Designer located an airplane salvage yard in Reno, Nevada, that had identical airplanes that could be filmed. The salvage yard owner packed the two fuselages, wings and tail parts into a pickup truck and trailer, delivering the airplane parts to the stage. On a Murphys location exterior sight, the one airplane was assembled and set in an open forest glade. With no snowfall, plastic shaved snow particles was sprinkled on the ground to simulate a snow fall. On Stage, the Beechcraft fuselage was set in a forest setting. The salvage owner became the technical advisor, related to both airplane's assembly and use. He removed one side of the stage's fuselage for the cast and camera crew to work inside the airplane. From the Beechcraft Company's sales brochure, the art department had Pacific Studios deliver a color blow up of the cockpit's instrument panel, which was mounted in front of the gutted pilot's instrument cockpit panel. Exteriors were first to be filmed and a miracle occurred. Overnight, a snow storm dropped four inches of powder in the Sierra range, the location's airplane crash sight was under the 4" deep powder of snow! This show, in the 1983 EMMY Nomination entries, was nominated in the film series Art Direction EMMY category. See more »
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.
