Anniversary of First Day of Filming

On May 31, 1966, filming began for "Don't Look a Gift Horse In The Mouth".  It was the 8th Episode to be Broadcast, 2nd to be filmed after the pilot.

Mike had mentioned this first day, the arrival on the Columbia Ranch on a Facebook Post.

The first few episodes can be seen as sticking close to the scripts, improv limited to the MOS scenes ("Mit-Out-Sound", i.e. Crew lingo for a German Director ordering silent scenes)

In 2016, is this the official kickoff date of 50 years?

As of this writing, I am working on something to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have A Dream", August of 1963.  JFK comes up a few months later, just before Thanksgiving.  11/22/63.  Then the Beatles on Ed Sullivan.  Then the Monkees conception 1965, shooting/premiere:1966.  Summer of Love, 1967.  By 1968, there were riots across America.

50 years later, another Great Depression, bombs to assassinate private citizens.  Music is still strongly needed.

No matter how much I study history and people, I will never fully comprehend violence.
