Did You Know?


This segment was filmed in the fall of 1963 and scheduled to air on CBS November 29, 1963. Because the storyline was extremely coincidental to the November 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, CBS pulled the segment. The segment has appeared in syndication. As of this posting, Chattanooga, Tennessee-based Retro Television Network (RTV) aired the episode on November 11, 2011, which was shown after the show's two-part finale. See more »

I saw it filmed
11 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

I lived in Niagara Falls when this episode was filmed and my mother and I went downtown to watch some of the scenes being made. Heck, we might even be IN the crowd scene on Main Street. We saw Marty Milner come out of his trailer/dressing room on a side street and he threw this starstruck 15-year old a big smile. (Swooooon...!)

Of course the episode never aired because of the Kennedy assassination later that year. I finally bought the boxed set of the whole series and I'm looking forward to going through all of them, but I skipped ahead and watched this one today.

There are a couple of ironies, besides the "lone gunman" referred to by another reviewer. The king mentions having visited Dallas on his tour. Also, the motorcade really caused flashbacks of the Zapruder footage, except that the Kennedys were in Lincolns (an irony in itself) and the king's entourage were in Cadillacs.

One of the best things about watching this series now is just the backgrounds of the USA in the early 60s. Not to mention that Tina Louise's hair was THE quintessential 1963 hairstyle (I have my high school yearbook from that year to prove it).
