Play It Again!, 16 January 2005
Author: jimpmeyering from Paris, France

As I recall, and my memory (is not what it use to be), this television series was about the good old war-time adventures in an exotic locale called Casablanca (house white). The actors were especially trying and the audience (TVland) showed appropriate appreciation. Surprisingly the dialogs had a wonderful old-timey crackle about them. Remarkable for it's remarkable supporting cast (except "Scatmen" Crothers.) The Bogey character, played amply by Mr. David "Starky" Soul, was a delight week after week (four weeks). Hopefully the DVD version will include the "lost" episodes. Authentic in every other way, the show was alas, marred by Mr. Soul's too-tight trousers.
