Trivia

In 2011, just before that year's Emmy Awards, artist Norman Sunshine wrote an article for the New York Times recounting his experience of being nominated for and winning an Emmy for designing the title sequence for Addie and the King of Hearts. Sunshine, who was (and, as of 2011, still is) the longtime romantic partner of then-Warner Brothers Television president Alan Shayne, said in the article that he struggled with whether or not he should take Shayne with him as his Emmy date. He finally decided instead to take a female friend for the sake of social propriety, and he later regretted that decision. See more »

Another Superb Offering last in a series
4 March 2004 | by (Des Moines) – See all my reviews

This Television Special broadcast in 1976, was the last (sob) in the series. It is an adaptation of the last of 4 books writen by Gail Rock.

The central character, Addie Mills, is an adult artist recalling her childhood in the 1940s. Addie, in the series, is skinny and awkward, with long brown hair and glasses. Her mother is dead, and her father is very strict. Addie's sympathetic grandmother lives in the household, but Addie's stern father is clearly in charge, denying Addie many of the privileges enjoyed by other girls.

In this last episode Addy and the King of Hearts, Addy has grown to a young teen.Addy has a crush on her Teacher, and does everything she can think of to gain his favorable attention. In the end, she settles for a boy her own age at the Valentine Dance.THIS HAS NEVER BEEN PUT ON VIDEO

THE VIDEOS IN THIS SERIES ARE:

The House Without a Christmas Tree (1974)(Book-same name) Addie's father won't let her have a Christmas tree, because it is a painful reminder of happier Christmases spent with his wife.

Holiday Treasure(1974)(Book called Thanksgiving Treasure),Addie befriends an elderly recluse at Thanksgiving time.

Easter Promise(1974) (Book called A Dream for Addy) This had Addie befriending an actress who is fighting alcoholism.
