Love, American Style Reviews & Ratings

A mod anthology about dating and mating in the swinging '70s, this collection of romantic vignettes drew an impressive guest roster, including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Sonny and Cher, Ozzie and Harriet, and, an icon of the era, Tiny Tim. In 1972, Ron Howard, Anson Williams and Marion Ross starred in a skit that resulted in a spin-off show, `Happy Days.' Popular, playful and never taken even remotely seriously, `Love' ran from 1969 to '74, and inspired a 1985 remake, `New Love, American Style.'

Each week, the show featured unrelated stories of romance, usually with a comedic spin. Episodes featured different characters, stories, and locations. In addition, a large, ornate brass bed was a recurring prop in many episodes.

The original series was also known for its :10 to :20 drop in silent movie-style "joke clips" between the featured segments. These clips allowed the show to be padded to the required length without padding the main segments. They generally consisted of then-risque, burlesque-style visual jokes.

The show subsequently became a daytime standard in syndication, since it was readily edited down to a half-hour by the proper interweaving of the clips with a main segment, effectively making 9 seasons out of five.

Enjoyed this show tremendously!
