The Patty Duke Show: Season One
The Patty Duke Show: Season One
From 1963 to 1966, American audiences were treated to the weekly comic hijinks of identical twin cousins, Patty Lane, a normal American teenager living in Brooklyn Heights, New York and Cathy Lane, her Scottish cousin freshly arrived in the United States to finish her secondary schooling. Patty Duke, already an Academy Award-Winner for her role in The Miracle Worker, played the roles of both girls. The Patty Duke Show immediately won over television audiences and ran for three fun-filled seasons, totaling 104 hilarious episodes. For the first time all 36 episodes are available on DVD in this 6-disc set!

As The Patty Duke Show demonstrates, from its very first episode in 1963, there's no teenager, then or now, who more personified early-'60s American Teen than Patty Duke. And the hit sitcom is still as funny and endearing as ever--and lots of fun to watch as a whole season. Plus there's something else that can be appreciated a few decades after the fact: as the double star of The Patty Duke Show, playing trendy wisenheimer American Patty Lane, and her "identical cousin," the cultivated Cathy, who grew up in Scotland, Duke pulled double acting duty throughout the show, and her performances as each teen are enthusiastic and impressive.
Duke's smiling, open persona, and her ease with her costars, is one reason for the show's appeal. When playing Patty, she's given the '60s standard-issue role of Young Alien in a Teenage Human Body--speaking an unfamiliar language (Patty: "Would you swing an X here?" Dad: "I assume in some unknown language that means you want my signature") and following peculiar tribal customs (Younger brother Ross: "So what happens at a slumber party, anyway?" Mom: ""Everything but slumbering!"). Yet Patty is lovable, and the audience is always rooting for her, even though it's always hoped that Cathy, the cultured, well-behaved cousin, will "rub off" on Patty.
Duke was already a Broadway veteran and an Oscar® winner for The Miracle Worker when she starred in the show at age 16. As the fantastic documentary included here informs, the show's producers chose to shoot in New York, whose child-labor laws were more lax than California's, so that young Duke could work 12 hours on set instead of 5. And the doc shows just how much acting Duke really had to do. As the present-day Duke recalls, "They had to bring in 'real' teenagers to teach me how to do the dances, the latest craze," she says. "I was too busy working to know about any of that stuff." Also standouts are the veteran character actor William Schallert, who played Patty's bemused dad, and Paul O'Keefe as the bespectacled pesky younger brother, Ross. The show was the brainchild of TV powerhouse Sidney Sheldon, who went on to create I Dream of Jeannie and Hart to Hart. Sheldon wrote nearly every episode in the first season himself, honing his craft in the still relatively new TV format of sitcom. This boxed set is a treasure trove for any fans of '60s TV, or of Patty Duke--and that should include pretty much everyone. --A.T. Hurley

Solomon: Part Time while Attending Pratt; Mr. Solomon owned this big decorating store in Bensenhurst, Brooklyn. He needed an intelligent person to help him exhibit and market his store’s fabrics, samples of furniture and slipcovers. In addition to decorating his store he loved to take me for lunch to talk. I enjoyed this once per week on Saturday Job. Mr. Solomon was so kind. I always remember that he would take me for lunch and inevitably spit up green mucus in his handkerchief at the table. It was truly disgusting but he paid me $50/day and as I said he was a very kind and needy man. He was born in Eastern Europe and migrated with his wife to the USA and opened this store. It was the fulfillment of their hopes and dreams. It is why he wanted me to help him decorate and design the store. It had turned to a large fabric and fit shop without style and he wanted me to give the style and focus. I did, and he was so grateful .He offered me the business and wanted me to run the store. But like so many other things, debrose, Classic, Buildesign, etc. I had my eyes on a future of away for the chaos and disarray of the neighborhoods. All through my life in Saudi and elsewhere, men like Solomon, silverman, Wolf, etc. never left my mind and I could carry them in my heart and wish I could bring them with me on the journey and lift them to where I was and enjoy it with them. IT was not them I wanted to leave but the mess, poverty, struggle and hardships of the neighborhoods. Mr Solomon must have been in his early seventies and he spoke with a heavy Yiddish accent. He was charming!

Stone: 1964: is where I met Gene and applied for Yale Vorhees Smith Walker Hanes and Walker: 1963 Interiors for Telephone Company 1963 Morris Lapidus 1964 (Six Months Only To Christmas) It is his son Alan who introduced me to John carpenter in Puerto Rico. It while working here I met Christina. Buchwald Drapery Workshop: The father of the famous Art Buchwald. It is working for him that I earned some of money I need for Yale Selwyn Pomeroy; It is where I worked hanging drapes while I attended Pratt. It is Mr. Pomeroy who introduced me to his son Lee for whom I later worked in Manhattan. Classic Drapery Workshop (piecework 1965,1969-1973 for Stanley Sommers). It is for Stanley that I had my first full time job. I earned the money I need to go to Columbia, New York School and later to Pratt and then Yale. Stanley was shot to death by a burglar in his factory building on Rose Feiss Blvd some years later. He visited us in our loft ON 68 street before we left for Jackson, Tennessee. His son now manages a playhouse in New England. Feiss Assoc.

There is now a school bearing the Celentano family name in New Haven. The family name is from Solerno and Calibrase (Calabria which also can be of Bari in Northern Italy) Vincent and Vito were the worst customers Gene and I had and like Joe Schroeder the pastor of Florida turned David Schilling against me so did the Celentano brothers destroy the partner ship between Gene and I. However, this was all part time while I was going to school in New Haven; now the firm is in Orange while Attending Yale
