The Baby Isn't Homely!
18 April 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Donna (Donna Reed) is put on the spot when her women's committee selects Alex (Carl Betz) to judge a beautiful baby contest. The pediatrician thinks telling mothers their children are "normal, average infants" might force him to "close up shop." Mary (Shelley Fabares) suspects something is amiss when her mother prepares Alex' favorite dinner, "lamb curry"; the last time she made it, Donna dented a fender.

It's always nice to see (and hear) Virginia Christine, who plays the ludicrously implausible role of "Margaret Lang", a mother ashamed of her "homely" baby (actually, he looks fine). Ms. Christine was the TV ad woman for Folgers Coffee. Jeff contributes an interesting observation, "You sneer at girls and they come running." And, as dictated by the script, we witness Mr. Betz blowing pipe smoke in Ms. Reed's face.

** The Baby Contest (12/3/58) Oscar Rudolph ~ Donna Reed, Carl Betz, Virginia Christine
