Trivia

The show was short lived, mainly due to its competition. It was shown on Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time, directly opposite The Jackie Gleason Show, then the fifth most popular show on television. It was cancelled at mid season, with its last broadcast on New Year's Eve 1966. For some reason, the family name of Starett was spelled with one R, instead of with two R's, as it was in the movie and source novel. See more »

I was just young enough to be 'Discovering and Exploring' Creativity. Shane opened me up to so much in the way of Production Values and Subtly as I embarked on a Media Career.

I see that they brought Jack Schaefer in, who wrote the Novel, half way through the Season. I'm going to put it aside for a month or so and check out some of the episodes Schaefer wrote but......
