Phil Silvers, whose own Gladasya Productions held a controlling interest in Gilligan's Island, appears in this classic episode as celebrated Hollywood producer Harold Hecuba. While on a world-wide talent search for his latest epic, Hecuba lands on the Castaways' island. Hoping to persuade the producer to rescue them, Gilligan (Bob Denver), the Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.) et. al. mount their own stage production, a musical version of "Hamlet" (sung to the tune of "Carmen"!) The climactic scene, in which Phil Silvers assumes control of the production and plays all the roles himself, is one of the great moments in TV Sitcom History.
