A tribute and doc-crime-drama celebrating American film noir and the icons of the Hollywood golden age. It recaptures the time and place of New York in the 30's and 40s as well as plays with the codes and references of the genre.

"Love That Jill" has a title most people seem to recall, but no one can remember seeing. Perhaps it's because of the name similarity to "Love That Bob" from a few years later. This show starred real-life husband & wife Robert Sterling and Anne Jeffreys as managers of opposing model agencies in New York City. Jill was constantly trying to steal Jack Gibson's business opportunities, and conjured some comical ways in which to do it. Unfortunately, even though the humor in the program was good, and Sterling & Jeffreys provided a compelling and likable couple, it was canceled by ABC after about four months. This was mostly due to the popularity of TV westerns during the late 50's, as it was up against a successful cowboy show called "The Texan" which starred Rory Calhoun. Of note,film actress Barbara Nichols appeared regularly as a ditsy blonde working for Jack Gibson's modeling service. Earlier, in 1952 to 1955, Sterling & Jeffreys portrayed a deceased married couple in a hit sitcom titled "Topper."
