RIP Larry Hagman!
Larry Martin Hagman (September 21, 1931 - November 23, 2012) was an American film and television actor best known for playing ruthless businessman J. R. Ewing in the 1980s primetime television soap opera Dallas, and befuddled astronaut Major Anthony "Tony" Nelson in the 1960s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie. He died at Medical City Dallas Hospital in Dallas, Texas from complications of cancer.
I Dream of Jeannie is a 1960s American sitcom with a fantasy premise. The show starred Barbara Eden as a 2000-year-old female genie, and Larry Hagman as an astronaut who becomes her master, with whom she falls in love and eventually marries. Produced by Screen Gems, the show originally aired from September 1965 to May 1970 with new episodes, and through September 1970 with season repeats, on NBC. The show ran for five seasons and produced 139 episodes. The first season consisted of 30 episodes filmed in black and white. The other 109 episodes were filmed in color. The show has continued to air in reruns ever since, currently airing in the United States on WGN America, on GO! in Australia and on Zee Cafe in India.
Bezaubernde Jeannie (im Original: I Dream of Jeannie) ist eine US-amerikanische Fernsehserie, die auf NBC vom 8. September 1965 bis zum 26. Mai 1970 erstausgestrahlt wurde. Vom ZDF wurde die Serie mit 13 Folgen vom 19. September bis 19. Dezember 1967 erstmals in Deutschland ausgestrahlt. Sie erreichte eine überdurchschnittliche Quote von 48%.
The first season theme music was an instrumental jazz waltz written by Richard Wess; eventually, Sidney Sheldon became dissatisfied with Wess' theme and musical score. From the second season on, it was replaced by a new theme entitled "Jeannie", composed by Hugo Montenegro with lyrics by Buddy Kaye. Episode 20 and 25 used a re-recorded ending of "Jeannie" for the closing credits with new, longer drum breaks and a different closing riff. The lyrics were never used in the show.
