Rescue From Gilligan's Island- Rescue from Gilligan's Island is a two-part television movie that continues the adventures of the shipwrecked castaways from the 1964--1967 TV series Gilligan's Island starring Bob Denver and Alan Hale, Jr. The film first aired on NBC October 14 and October 21, 1978. In depicting the rescue, at last, of the castaways, the film forms a cathartic response to many of the episodes of the series in which "they almost get off the island". The film was directed by Leslie Martinson.Tina Louise at first declined to appear in the movie, claiming that she was not going to reprise the role that she felt had devastated her career but she changed her mind several times, deciding at the last minute not to appear after all. Reportedly she asked for a prohibitively large sum of money. Judith Baldwin, a substantially younger actress who resembled Louise, was cast in her place. The following year, Baldwin would go on to play Ginger again in The Castaways On Gilligan's Island. Cassandra Peterson also auditioned for the part of 'Ginger,' shortly before KHJ-TV offered her the horror-host position as 'Elvira Mistress of the Dark'.
