Storyline

Amy and Jim Preston have been married for twenty years but, in her husband's eyes, she has become sloppy both about the house and herself. Jim has no problems with falling in love with Georgie Harlow, a fellow-office worker who is pretty and young...and willing. Jim finally asks Amy for a divorce so he can marry Georgie, and Amy pleads for him to stay but he walks out. He soon realizes that he can't go through with the desertion of Amy and their teen-age son, Brian, and returns home. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Unfogettable For More Reasons Than One
26 December 2007 | by (Scranton, Pa.) – See all my reviews

In the late sixties (Pre-VCR) we had three UHF stations in our area, and they all signed off at 12 midnight. Unfortunately I worked second shift at a local factory and was just getting out at that time. One of our stations, bowing to public pressure, agreed to remain on after midnight and show movies. "Great...Right? "No, Not so great!!! They purchased four films, one of which was "Woman In A Dressing Gown", and showed them over and over again. "My God, It was just like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" I still have the dialogue running through my head even today. (He covers everything I make in sauce...Dollops of sauce) The remaining films were(in order of boredom):

The Burning Hills, Teenagers From Outer Space,and Dangerous Youth
