Happy, Happy Birthday Donna
18 April 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Donna (Donna Reed) says she wants nothing special for her birthday, but Alex (Carl Betz) isn't so sure. He becomes aware Donna has been admiring a (reduced to) $65 beaded bag, at the town's upscale "Carter's", and thinks she is trying to arrange for him to buy her the bag. Meanwhile, Jeff is broke, and asks sister Mary to lend him some money (incidentally, Mary loses five cents on the dollar; and, Jeff needs to watch out for tables). Writer Nate Monaster and convincing appearances by Mary Treen and Angela Greene had me wondering... Ms. Reed, of course, conveys her character properly.
