This Week in Television History: January 2013 PART V

Listen to me on TV CONFIDENTIAL:

As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history, the more that fact and legend become intertwined. It's hard to say where the truth really lies.

January 28, 1978
Fantasy Island premieres. Fantasy Island is created in early 1978 as a follow-up to ABC's surprise hit The Love Boat. 
Screen actor Ricardo Montalban played the mysterious Mr. Roarke, and his diminutive sidekick, Tattoo, was played by Herve Villechaize.

To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".

Stay Tuned
