Opening in theaters today:
OK. You know the theme from the 60’s TV series.
But do you know who wrote it?
And how did he come up with it?
Filmways chose not to pay for singers on the show’s Main Title, so Mizzy sang it while overdubbing himself three times to give the impression of multiple vocalists.
If you listen carefully, you can tell that’s Mizzy.
Music was an entertaining component in the popular show.
Oh, and Lurch could dance, too.
Vic Mizzy recorded an album of the various soundtrack pieces. This one sounds Lawrence Welk-like.
