Did You See It?
On Sunday, October 14th at 9pm  CBS a new CBS docu-drama-comedy, "Surviving Gilligan's Island,"   This behind the scenes look at "Gilligan's Island" recreated your favorite moments, even the rescue.  It was produced by Dawn (Mary Ann) Wells and featured appearances by Bob Denver and Russell Johnson. 

Just like the series, the critics hated it, but just like the series, the ratings were great.  

Eric Allan Kramer's portrayal of Alan Hale Jr. was so perfect, it was spooky. Kristen Dalton was terrific as Ginger, if fact all of the cast was very good with the possible exception of Samantha Harris as Dawn Wells.  Want to know more?  There's a great web site by Pete Ceres with behind the scenes photos taken by the author, but be warned, these nice high-res pictures take a long time to load.  Click Here to go There.  

Critics felt that Dawn Wells and the other writers really trashed Tina Louise because she was the only living cast-member to not appear in the show.  The day after the program aired, radio personality, Howard Stern, got Tina to talk about the facts.  In the interview, she admitted that just about everything said about her in the movie was true.

On November 9, 2001, Tina was promoting and up-coming TV movie on Entertainment Tonight.  She used the occasion to once again sat that she wasn't the person portrayed in "Surviving Gilligan's Island."  CLICK HERE to hear this 60 second "in depth interview."

"Surviving Gilligan's Island"  was fun, but it was a shame that Natalie Schafer, Jim Backus and Alan Hale Jr. are no longer with us.  Which brings me to the point of this page.  

In 1988,  all the cast-members got together for a reunion on "The Late Show" with Ross Shafer.  This is the last time they'd all be together.  No one realized, at the time, they were making TV history.  Now for the first time in over a decade you can hear a special version of this interview.   Click Here to hear a fifteen minute version of this historic interview

Hear the cast try to answer Gilligan trivia questions! 

On July 9, 1989, Jim Backus (Thurston Howell III) died of pneumonia at the age of 76. Alan Hale Jr. (the Skipper) died in 1990 from respiratory failure due to cancer, he was 71.  Natalie Schafer (Lovey Howell) died of cancer in 1991. She was 91 years old. No one knew she was 70 years old when she was doing physical comedy on "Gilligan's Island." The TV movie said she was 80, they meant to say that she was 80 in the "Rescue" movie.
