Question Joanie Smoking

While watching the episode where Joanie smoked, I noticed that Erin Moran looked like she knew what she was doing as far as holding a cigarette, etc. Do you think she was just a good actress, or do you think she was really a smoker???

I noticed on tv that Tom Bosley smoked, & probably did for years, & so did Henry Winkler. It would be so ironic if Erin Moran were the only one that actually didnt smoke. I wonder if the episode convinced anyone to quit.

Erin was a smoker & not a bad actress either.

I dont smoke, but I noticed that she really wasnt smoking per se, she blew the smoke almost inmediately(from what Ive heard, you have to hold up the smoke a little and then blow it) JMO though, I just think she was a good actress.

I didn't know Henry smoked as shown here:

This explains why he looked SO much older than he actually was. The 70s were a different time. That also explain the black T-Shirt years why he gained weight. He most likely quit smoking and the extra weight always happens after you quit smoking. I always thought you gained weight because your used to putting something in your mouth but it's because cigarettes kill your taste buds on your tongue. Stop smoking, and the taste buds return and now food suddenly has MUCH MORE Flavor than your used to which causes the weight gain - or so I am told.

I'm confused. Is that a pic from an actual episode or is that a behind the scenes pic?

It's a behind the scenes pic. Fonz NEVER smoked on camera. Look at Henry's Jeans, classic 70s style. It was during rehearsals.

Cool

I'm reading Garry Marshall's autobiography (My Happy Days in Hollywood) right now. He was a heavy smoker in those days. Perhaps he gave Erin some pointers on how to make her smoking look realistic on camera!

The thing that no one understands is that when you smoke, you just look SO COOL DOING IT! Not to mention all the other benefits that come along with it. The bad breathe, yellow teeth and finger nails, wrinkles. And if you smoke long enough (and stay alive) the bonus feature of having your skin and face look like and old catchers mitt!

I think that she was probably smoking by then. People who weren't around in the 70's (totally dating myself, I know!) don't realize how prevelent it was. Everyone and their brother smoked. Restaurants didn't have smoking sections, you could just light up anywhere. People smoked in their offices, in waiting rooms, and everywhere that didn't have a rare "no smoking" sign. Kids frequently smoked. Store clerks were not as diligent as they are now regarding minors smoking, and if they were, you could go to a vending machine to buy smokes. It was a different time and a different way of life.

When I was a kid, I could go the store and buy cigarettes for my Mom. Never touched 'em myself, but I could easily buy them.

And if Happy Days was realistic, most of the kids at Arnold's would have been smoking.

I did the same thing. I went to the store and bought a few for my Mom a few times. Nobody ever stopped me and I never smoked. I have asthma and never would touch the stuff.

At my HS ( and this was in the early 80's) they had a smoking area just for students who smoked. It was going all over at my school. It was no big deal then.
