Introducing Dorothy Dandrich...um Marilyn Monroe...um Kelly Williams
Nothing on television ever rivalled ABC's Tuesday Night at the Movies, a anthology of made-for-TV films which pushed the envelope on what could be shown on TV. Movies like "Duel," "Tribes," "Crowhaven Farm," "Satan's School for Girls," and "The Sex Symbol" were cutting edge stories that still hold up by today's standards. I guess that's why they call them classics. "The Sex Symbol" was a thinly veiled telling of the Marilyn Monroe story (in this case "The Kelly Williams Story"). Connie Stevens gave an acclaimed performance which seemed to have inspired Halle Berry in another excellent biopic "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" with some of the scenes being frightfully similar. I wish "The Sex Symbol" were available somewhere (especially the European version. Connie allowed some rare nude scenes to be shot for inclusion in prints that would among other places, be shown to military troops overseas) but for now I must depend only on my memory of the original broadcast, and Halle Berry in "IDD."
