Chickens Come Home to Roost
13 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dorothy Provine's mother is pretty formidable. She never wavers in her realization that Robert Alda is a slime ball that is getting his jollies with the pretty blonde while stringing her along. She is herself quite dense and falls for the big jerk. He, of course, is used to his wife's money and there is no chance that he will actually seek a divorce. Enter Mom who has to either watch her daughter be manipulated and eventually cast aside or take action. Naturally, she is an adult living with her mother and the old lady really has no business meddling. But off she goes, confronting him in his office, but he believes he parries her, using all that charm and snake oil. Robert Alda played this role very well (I always thought that he and Leslie Nielson could have been twins). The conclusion is one of the most satisfying of all the episodes.
