    Nightshift and Waterboy were his 2 best films and of course his roll as "The FONZE" is iconic. They should put his leather jacket in The Smithsonian.

    And about the Jacket.. You are right...


    Fonzie's windbreaker/leather jacketDuring the mid-season of the first season (1974), Garry Marshall went to Hawaii for a week to shoot the pilot for another series called Little People starring Brian Keith. While he was gone, Fonzie was wearing a windbreaker with little penny loafers instead of his patented leather jacket and motorcycle boots. Somebody at ABC had decided that a hoodlum was an inappropriate character for the eight o'clock time slot. Marshall was able to convince ABC that Fonzie couldn't possibly ride his motorcycle in flimsy shoes (motorcycle safety) and the audience would worry about him getting cold in the thin windbreaker that he was wearing. The network eventually agreed and said that Fonzie could wear the leather jacket only when he was with the motorcycle. The bike never left the Fonz's side during the first season, even for indoor scenes. Finally, ABC decided to let Fonzie wear his leather jacket during all scenes in the later seasons.
    The character of Arthur Fonzarelli was so immensely popular, there was talk of changing the title to "Fonzie's Happy Days." Henry Winkler was receiving as much as 55,000 fan letters per week during the shows run.
    In 1980, the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. put one of the Fonz's leather jackets on display.
    Click here to see a picture of The Fonz's leather jacket on display at the Smithsonian.The first leather jacket was stolen after the first year on Happy Days. They then had a new one made...they had one made when he waterskiied (in the Hollywood episodes) without a lining; and a backup. But the main one, he presented to the Smithsonian Institution in 1980 so they had to make another jacket for the next three seasons.
