Trivia:
Shirley MacLaine made a deal with Sir Lew Grade (the executive producer) that he would finance her in films of her own choice if she "took a crack at television". She took her "crack" with 'Shirley's World' and he financed her in 'Desperate Characters'(1971) and 'The Possession of Joel Delany' 1972).See more »

Lively show killed by terrible scripts., 20 October 1999
Author: grunsel from United Kingdom

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.
