This episode was originally scheduled to air on November 22, 1963 but was postponed for one week due to CBS' coverage of the assassination of President Kennedy.
This episode, shot in Memphis, Tennessee, contains a dance sequence that includes the only known video of R&B singer Little Willie John ("Fever"). He is seen during a dance scene hitting a tambourine, when the camera quickly pans to show the band playing.
