Trivia

The first (pilot) episode of Hank was filmed in black and white and Broadway performer Imelda de Martin was cast as Hank's girlfriend. It is unclear whether it ever aired in this form but the episode has made the rounds on the Internet. For some reason, this version of the pilot episode is not included in the official DVD set from Warner Bros. Later, de Martin was replaced by actress Linda Foster in the same role and the episode was released as the official pilot (and first) episode on Friday, Sept. 17, 1965 by NBC. There appears to be no other major differences between the two versions. Both pilots were filmed in black and white while the remaining series was filmed and shown in color. See more »
