    Ozzie & Harriet Release From Sam Nelson?

    When they did the movie Pleasantville and depicted a white bread, everything perfect 50s sitcom, I think O&H was probably the blueprint that they used. Speaking of which, how did they constantly eat ice cream and drink milk shakes but never gain an ounce? Just like in Pleasantville!

    Ozzie & Harriet Release From Sam Nelson?

    He put himself in charge. He had no clue as to what a project of this magnitude entailed nor what the cost would be. Which makes sense, since he has no background in production nor home video. His only qualification is that he's Ozzie and Harriet's grandson and has access to the the estate.
