Trivia

Initial "Bright Promise" concept scenic discussions between producer Gloria Monte and production designer Hub Braden concentrated on the set's wall color related to the series star Dana Andrews (at age 60 in 1969). The final over-all set color, hue, solution had to have a rose tint for stage-set wall bounce-lighting reflections. The bounce light from the rose-beige set wall color would enhance any actor's facial make-up for camera appearances. The color solution was to make the 60 year old Dana Andrews look younger for "camera." In 1988, when production designer Hub Braden was asked to take over Angela Lansbury's (age 63) CBS TV series "Murder, She Wrote," the same rose-beige wall color scheme was used in determining the painted color for any stage set, and location set, built that Angela Lansbury's role as "Jessica Fletcher" appeared in.
