To All My Friends on Shore
Originally telecast February 25, 1972, To All My Friends on Shore stars Bill Cosby as a middle-aged airport redcap. Frustrated by his job and his ghetto existence, Cosby vows to seek out a better life for himself and his loved ones. But his stubborn efforts to do so succeed only in turning his family against him. Already burdened with enough problems for three men, Cosby must face a new crisis when his son develops sickle-cell anemia. Filmed on location in Connecticut, To All My Friends on Shore not only starred Bill Cosby, but was produced, scored and written by him as well. Allan Sloane was honored with an Emmy for his adaptation of Cosby's original story.
