Love, American Style was an hour-long television anthology which
originally aired between September 1969 and January 1974. For the
1971 and 1972 seasons it was a part of an ABC Friday prime-time
lineup that also included Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, Room
222, and The Odd Couple. Each week, the show featured different
stories of romance, usually with a comedic spin. All episodes were
unrelated, featuring different characters, stories and locations.
The show often featured the same actors playing different characters
in many episodes. In addition a large and ornate brass bed was a
recurring prop in many episodes. Charles Fox's delicate yet hip
music score, featuring flutes, harp, and flugelhorn set to a
contemporary pop beat, provided the "love" ambiance which tied the
stories together as a multifaceted romantic comedy each week.
