Dick van Dyke Show: Behind the Scenes

In Television: Critical Methods and Applications I used a screen shot of The Dick van Dyke Show to illustrate high-key lighting–even in a nighttime bedroom scene.

Today, thanks to a fascinating article by Xenia at Collar City Brownstone, which pointed to Shorpy.com, I found a behind-the-scenes photograph of that same set! Shorpy describes it:

Just amazing.
