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 »

This was an attempt to produce a musical comedy-drama series every week. A lonely millionaire adopts in several orphaned girls of different backgrounds. The storylines revolved around various problems of the pre-teen and teenaged girls. The show was set in the early 1960's, and the girls sang pop and rock tunes that were popular during that time. Rags To Riches was a candy cane confection of a show that might have worked if it had premiered back in the early 1960s. All of the girls problems were innocent and neatly tied up at the end.
