Burke meets "Bovary" re-imagined for the '60
7 September 2015 | by (NYC suburbs) – See all my reviews

Millionaire police detective Amos Burke (Gene Barry) hops in his Rolls Royce and cruises LA's bourgeoisie boulevards searching for the killer of a San Fernando Valley housewife found strangled in her shower. The dead woman was leading a double life (and then some) that began one morning at the breakfast table when she and a friend (Lucy & Ethel-style) realized they were bored with suburban monotony and decided then and there to lead exciting lives like the ones they read about in newspapers. Adultery, theft, blackmail, and counterfeiting seemed far more glamorous to them than tract houses or bridge clubs and their goal was to get enough money to run off to the Riviera and crash the jet set.

It's "Madame Bovary" re-imagined, of course, but the plot's class- conscious theme is still relevant today. The guest stars (love them) were Hoagy Carmichael as the victim's mild-mannered Mister, Nanette Fabray as her ditzy next-door neighbor, "there's no fool like an old fool" Arthur O'Connell, and Miss Jayne Mansfield as "Cleo", a stripper in mourning for her pet python. There's also plenty of other pulchritudinous starlets on display including B-movie faves Sandra Giles & Marianna Hill. Good episode!
