I recently purchased a copy of one of 'The Millionaire' series.
This 1955 episode features Carolyn Jones later to star as Morticia in the Addams Family TV series. Carolyn plays the part of Emily Short who receives a cheque for one million and decides to take a trip to Paris, until this she has never been outside of the US.
It is good clean family entertainment.
It would be great if one of the channels could run them. Maybe someone can drop a hint to TCM or Hallmark.
