*The below section taken from Hilary Thompson, in Tom Lisanti’s "Drive-In Dream Girls: A Galaxy of B-Movie Starlets of the Sixties", discussed the quick demise of the series: "This was an interesting failure. We filmed right next door to The Partridge Family, which started the same year. Both shows were aimed at the teenage audience. Somehow that show connected and we didn’t. If I were guessing why, I’d say it was because of the actors. I believe that the television audience watches a particular show because they want to spend time with the people. They just didn’t catch on to us particularly–not that I took it as a personal affront. It was the show’s whole chemistry. But I could be wrong. Maybe it was the whole Revolutionary War setting. The audience went, 'huh?' "
