Storyline

A well-known author is visiting Palm Beach, and he meets some old friends. He tells them that he will be writing his next book about Prince Burhan, a noted playboy from India, who will be arriving that evening. Also staying at the resort are Howard and Irene Cole. Howard spends most of his time with a young actress, and the others are baffled by Irene's tolerance. When the prince arrives, he surprises everyone by spending all of his time with the plain-looking Irene, and by insisting that he is in love with her. Before long, Prince Burhan tells Irene that if she does not divorce Howard in order to marry him, he will kill himself. Written by Snow Leopard

I Never Bought any of It
23 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know the acting was OK, but in the worst soap opera way. These rich obnoxious people play and pretend. The husband in the episode, runs around with some idiot blonde and his wife accepts that this is the way it is. There is no sparring; she is totally fine with this. Along comes some dippy prince, who starts putting moves on her. She isn't that bad looking, but she isn't exactly princess material. Of course, there is something going on. The byplay continues and it eventually ends in a boring, predictable way. I never was able to care about these people. They were smug asses who treated each other with disdain. Anyway, I wouldn't bother with this one, even if it was a little out of the Hitchcock milieu.
