  • Trivia

    • During an interview on Dave White's Talking Television, Dawn Wells recounted a moment connected with the tv-movie The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island that she said she would never forget. On the day that the weak and ailing Jim Backus came in to shoot the one scene that his failing health would allow, he gave a wonderful performance. Then after the scene ended he turned to Wells and asked her "Was I funny?" She reassured him that he was indeed funny, and it broke her heart to realize how far gone he was at that point that he couldn't judge his own work.
