The series was filmed in B/W for the first season, switched to color film for seasons two and three, and then went back to B/W for the final year when it moved to CBS. I guess they weren't as interested in promoting early color TV as NBC was at the time. The color is a bit faded, but not that bad, and I would bet the color schemes were chosen for how they would appear on B/W sets because very few people had color TVs in 1962!
For 39 shows, I'm happy. This show isn't great but I've enjoyed the first few shows so far. It is all new to me since I wasn't born at the time....
I was only 17 when I appeared in this episode, I sang an Elvis song and an Aria from La Boehme, Musetta's waltz. My experience with the show was a positive for my career but a personally negative one. As somebody also pointed out in a review Joey Bishop was a complex man. When I auditioned for the show , he was very upfront with me and said he really liked my voice, but wanted his writers to come up with a good script and he would let me know. One week later my manager called and told me , I would be on. I liked Joey's up front personality.
The week that I was on was also the week where they would decide if they would renew the Joey Bishop show for another season, he was very nervous. Even while taping he threw me lines I never heard before, so it was difficult to come in with my lines. He was under a lot of presssure. Joey was also not pleased at the response from the audience when I finished the aria. At the end of the show after everyone had gone he admonished me for more than 15 minutes how I did not show enough apreciation toward him at the taping, like hugging him. I was only 17, the directer had to come down and tell him to stop. I was in tears. Perhaps I didnt show enough apreciation, we didnt rehearse it that way and he was a person
that was difficult to read, he always seemed so angry.
That nite he found out he was renewed,being show belonged to Danny Thomas. I didnt get to meet Mr. Thomas as he was in europe, though they all wanted him to meet me.Read more ›
this show, but never had actually seen it, until know. The sound & picture are good, colors are
a bit funky...but there okay! My favorite cast member is Joe Besser who played Jillson, the
maintainence man, he lights up the screen whenever he is on...just a consumate comedian,
so wonderful. Buy it if you enjoy a typical 60's sitcom.
