Saw an episode earlier today, and it's exactly as described in the above comments.
19 August 2008 | by (NY NY) – See all my reviews

The Paley Center in NY has two episodes in its archive, and it was great fun to watch one. It's cotton candy, of course, with some wildly improbable plot turns and clichéd writing here and there.

But the comic acting and timing are first rate, and the cast seem to be enjoying themselves a lot. I enjoyed them too, and it was intriguing to see 1957-era London locations (e.g., the Richard Wattis character walking down a London street, with actual Londoners in the background, frankly gawking at the actor, camera, and crew passing by).

And yes, at the end the hero and heroine DO end up in their chaste twin beds, discussing the day's events.

(By the way, the Paley Center version includes commercials from the sponsor, Mogen David Wine, and its subsidiary, "Key Wines" (presumably for the secular market)--with Hans Conreid posing as a Frenchman who is congratulating Americans for having the good fortune to be able to enjoy the wonders of Key Wines. Yes...they WERE simpler times.)
