Soleil Moon Frye,
During the filming of Hunk in the House, Season 2, Robert Firth portrayed Joey Galanto - a fellow veteran and buddy of Joe Bologna's character, Nick Foley. Their scenes were essentially flash back sequences, filmed in black and white and shot in Griffith Park, Ca. - doubling for the French countryside during WWII. In one of their action scenes, Robert was required to grab a wounded Bologna from a seated position and, in an attempt to rescue his longtime friend, throw him over his shoulder and run some distance with him, on his back. The stunt coordinator showed him all of the choreographed movements and asked him if he was up to the task. He assured the coordinator it would not be a problem for him. The scene required many long takes, from several different angles. Fortunately, an exhausted Firth managed to complete all of the tasks as promised. Unfortunately, it would be a full week's recovery before Robert could actually walk again. See more »
Though the series is set in the year 1961, much of the clothes and accessories worn by the characters are clearly from the 1980s. See more »
I first saw this show in 1986 and it became one of my favorite all time television shows. The Singing and dancing was great - especially enjoyed how they reworked the 50's and 60's tunes to reflect the actions in each episode. The girls were cute - especially important to a teenage boy (had a major crush on Bridget Michele (Diane) and Kimiko Gelman (Rose).
Unfortunately, I never did get to see all 21 episodes of the show, and only was able to record four episodes on VHS in 1987 (which I have since transferred to DVD and still enjoy).
Sad the show did not even last one season, but it is truly a nostalgic gem for both the 1980's and 1960's.
