During the filming of Hunk in the House, Season 2, Robert Firth portrayed Joey Galanto - a fellow veteran and buddy of Joe Bologna's character, Nick Foley. Their scenes were essentially flash back sequences, filmed in black and white and shot in Griffith Park, Ca. - doubling for the French countryside during WWII. In one of their action scenes, Robert was required to grab a wounded Bologna from a seated position and, in an attempt to rescue his longtime friend, throw him over his shoulder and run some distance with him, on his back. The stunt coordinator showed him all of the choreographed movements and asked him if he was up to the task. He assured the coordinator it would not be a problem for him. The scene required many long takes, from several different angles. Fortunately, an exhausted Firth managed to complete all of the tasks as promised. Unfortunately, it would be a full week's recovery before Robert could actually walk again. See more »
Though the series is set in the year 1961, much of the clothes and accessories worn by the characters are clearly from the 1980s. See more »
Rags to Riches was such a great idea. TV needed something a little light at the time. Aside from the facts of life, everything seemed so serious. Rose, Diane, Marva, Patty, & Mickey sang their way through problems in their lives. The drama every week included stories like, Rose & Diane fighting over the same guy, Marva opening her business, Patty going thru puberty, & Mickey stuggling to sell girl scout cookies. Unfortunantly NBC wrote in tv guide that the show was to expensive to keep on. After 3 movies & two season-run it came to an end. I am so glad I managed to tape the movie, along with a few episodes, & my favorite two hour movie "rags to riches in vegas."
