This is a pretty good cast in a too-complex story. I knew Joan Hackett ever so slightly before she died -- such a lovely person whom I first saw in "The Group," which came out at around the same time. She's supposed to be plain in this plot, but she is in fact quite classy and beautiful, making her motives unclear. Kathleen Nolan is supposed to be the beautiful one, but is in fact so twangy of accent that she loses any appeal, too reminiscent of Kate in "The Real McCoys". I was intrigued by the gratuitous beefcake appearance of an actor named Anthony McBride, one of too many characters in the plot, playing a model who looks like Tab Hunter but with a finer physique. I figured he was somebody's new "discovery," but he seems to have disappeared from the acting scene to become a producer. There is, ultimately, too much going on in this episode, which includes young George Furth as a photographer and Kevin McCarthy as the romantic lead.
