Warner Archive has not yet released Mr. Novak on DVD...hopefully, it's coming in the next two years (I keep asking WAC on FB about it)...but a dedicated and knowledgeable fan of the show, Author Chuck Harter, is publishing a 376 page, profusely illustrated, large format hardcover book on the series...from fine publisher BearManor Media on October 15, ($35)...a softcover edition will follow at some point, as per provided publisher's information...

I've been a long time fan of the show...although I was only 7 going on 8 at the time, and likely struggled to fully appreciate the then cutting edge contemporary drama set in a Los Angeles High School...I have since viewed most of the episodes derived from the late '80s TNT airings, although my copies are problematic for my valued core collection...I regard it as essential for my DVD library...the setting was "Jefferson High" (actually John Marshall High School, 3939 Tracy St., in the Los Feliz neighborhood of LA)...a young, dedicated and idealistic Korean War Veteran embarking on his new career as a Teacher...Mr. Novak, of course, played by James Franciscus, who was previously seen as a regular on the first season of Naked City...the Great Oscar Winning Actor Dean Jagger played Principal Vane in 46 of 60 episodes... because of ill health he was later replaced in season two by Burgess Meredith...other regulars were Jeanne Bal as the assistant principal Jean Pagano...Bal is remembered by Star Trek fans as the 'Wife' of professor Crater in 'Mantrap'...the other regular was Marian Collier as the Home Economics teacher (sometime love interest for Novak), Marilyn Scott...this show was as much about the teachers and administration as it was about the students and their families...several players recurred as students on the show...Beau Bridges, Tony Dow, Tommy Kirk, Frankie Avalon, Julie Sommars, Kim Darby, Joey Hetherton, Brooke Bundy, Sherry Jackson, Johnny Crawford among them... The real 'Jefferson High'...John Marshall H.S.,... Publicity photo of James Franciscus as Mr. Novak... Dean Jagger and James Franciscus in the hallways of John Marshall H.S....many of the real student body were seen in backgrounds of the episodes...it's a lively topic of conversation for the class of '65 in their reunion alumni association...a lot of filming of course took place on purpose built sets at the MGM Culver City studio as well...same place that Dr. Kildare and Gene Roddenberry's The Lieutenant was filmed... Jeanne Bal as Jean Pagano on Mr. Novak... Marian Collier as Home Ec teacher Marilyn Scott... TV Guide covers for Mr. Novak's two season run... Nov. 16, 1963... Apr. 18, 1964... Feb. 20, 1965... It's too bad that the wonderful Julie Newmar never appeared on Mr. Novak...she was an actual Alumni of John Marshall H.S.,...with her IQ of 135, she graduated ahead of her classmates in 1948...she was only 15 at the time!
