Very good show
11 February 2005 | by (Motown) – See all my reviews

I don't remember this show at all from 1963 but I do have a few episodes now, trying to get more, and I enjoy it very much, especially as a Richard Rust fan. He plays Sam's assistant. When you have two great actors on one show, Edmond O'Brien and Rust, and it's intelligently written yet entertaining, how can you miss? Since it was canceled after one year, I feel that it was ahead of its time, and could actually enjoy success now, if properly promoted. It has a Nelson Riddle theme, nice sets (apartments, restaurants, the office and courtroom), Richard Rust looks perfect in his suits and you can actually understand everything they say...elocution! Interesting guest stars, such as Diana Hyland, Gloria Grahame, Claude Rains, Joseph Schildkraut (he was nominated for an Emmy for his role as a Rabbi) and one episode was directed by Ida Lupino. If I owned a TV channel, this would be on!
