Hedy Lamarr as guest star
12 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1957, NBC was occasionally showing TV color on some of their shows. I remember seeing the ad for one particular color show that year where they headlined...Color TV and Hedy, too..or something to that effect. I searched high and low for a place that had color TV to view it, but the only ones that i did come across were in bars and I was not of the proper age..so I had to settle for the black and white version. It turned out that Hedy, according to the critics of that day, was 'the' show. She was in almost every scene, from a walk on as a cigarette girl, to an old lady with s slight hunchback and then at the finale, playing drums and singing with Perry the hit of that day..."Round and Round". It was really an excellent show and what really surprised me, was Hedy lamarr. I had never seen her this way and she was wonderful as the critics claimed. She must of been around 42 years old at that time. I would love to see that show again. Are any of his shows on DVD?
