A really great insight to manipulative Hollywood, done lightheartedly and quite enjoyable.
7 April 2001 | by (Hollywood, Ca.) – See all my reviews

"A Table at Ciro's" is one of the most fun episodes in the periodic prestige series, Tales from the Hollywood Hills, presented on PBS. Scene 1, Take 1 begins inside Ciro's as employees ready the club before opening for the evening. Rehearsing on stage is one of my favorite vocalists, Donna Murphy, who later, in 1996, delightfully played Ruth Geddy in an episode of Rupert Holmes' great old-time radio series "Remember WENN."

Darren McGavin is A.D. Nathan, a studio head on rocky ground and, unsure of his own future, keeps his suspicions to himself. Meanwhile, he arranges for dinner at Ciro's inviting a couple from the past (Stella Stevens and Kenneth McMillan) who are hoping to make a comeback. Also in attendance is an up and coming young Latin actor (Steven Bauer), a very new starlet hopeful (Kim Myers) and, of course, his wife Lita Nathan (Lois Chiles). What happens next is.......

I can't describe much more without giving away some important parts of the plot, so I won't. But don't miss this TV movie should it come your way, it's totally enjoyable. The final scene contains one of the best renditions of Richard Rodgers' immortal old standard "Where or When" and, of course, it's sung by Donna Murphy.

Please note all cast screen credits are in order of appearance.
