Another script, "The Rescue", centered around a ten passenger turboprop Beechcraft aircraft, which crashes in the high Sierra mountain range, with the family of seven brothers rescuing the pilot and passengers. Requesting information about the airplane from the Beechcraft Company in Ohio, required sending the script for an approval for the production company to use any Beechcraft airplanes. The Production Designer located an airplane salvage yard in Reno, Nevada, that had identical airplanes that could be filmed. The salvage yard owner packed the two fuselages, wings and tail parts into a pickup truck and trailer, delivering the airplane parts to the stage. On a Murphys location exterior sight, the one airplane was assembled and set in an open forest glade. With no snowfall, plastic shaved snow particles was sprinkled on the ground to simulate a snow fall. On Stage, the Beechcraft fuselage was set in a forest setting. The salvage owner became the technical advisor, related to both airplane's assembly and use. He removed one side of the stage's fuselage for the cast and camera crew to work inside the airplane. From the Beechcraft Company's sales brochure, the art department had Pacific Studios deliver a color blow up of the cockpit's instrument panel, which was mounted in front of the gutted pilot's instrument cockpit panel. Exteriors were first to be filmed and a miracle occurred. Overnight, a snow storm dropped four inches of powder in the Sierra range, the location's airplane crash sight was under the 4" deep powder of snow! This show, in the 1983 EMMY Nomination entries, was nominated in the film series Art Direction EMMY category. See more »
First of all, the title probably wasn't the best, but what would have been a better title? Maybe they should have cut the number of brothers and given it a different title. "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" and "The Magnificent Seven" are rather famous titles in the history of Western cinema, but younger people in 1982-1983 weren't familiar with them. The seven orphan brothers run a ranch in California. They are rather hard up for money. They had an old International pickup and a late-model Jeep. There was one episode where they broke into a bankrupt grain warehouse to get some feed they owned in there but weren't allowed to get. This was obviously based on the Wayne Cryts soybean incident in southeastern Missouri. In another episode there were cattle rustlers and they had to chase a potload of stolen cattle in the Jeep and shoot out a front tire. There was another episode with a blizzard.
