After trying to make various changes to the script that she was extremely dissatisfied with, Shirley MacLaine was not allowed to see each script until 48 hours before shooting was due to start. See more »
To date, Shirley MacLaine's only television series. Shirley was reputedly, uneasy about the whole production and it does show. But apart from a couple of fluffy first episodes you could not say the series was dull, as in her role as a globe trotting photographer (for a glossy magazine), she gets to solve crimes, save marriages and even join the circus ! A slick production with extensive location work from England to Asia, and a good support cast helped her along, with the likes of, for example Cyril Cusack (as a quite ingenious jewel thief).
I was only use to seeing Shirley previously in frumpy 'old before her time' roles, but here if you want to see Shirley looking gorgeous in jeans with the verve of a twenty something year old with drama and travelogue scenery thrown in, then check this show out.
That is of course if you can find it. A mention too for her editor played by John Gregson, not always seen but gives good value when he is. The support and crew certainly deserved a few brownie points for trying hard with this one.
