Best TV Comedy Episode Ever!

Here Comes The Suit is one of the funniest episodes in TV history. Backed buy a great cast of seasoned character actors. David Niven stars as a meek advertising copy writer for a novelty toy company. He is also in love with the bosses secretary Christine (Allison Hayes). When a senior executive job is up for grabs, it looks like the job is going to the bosses snobby yes man and rival for Christine's affection.

When a con-man clothing store owner (Jessie White) owner of Simpson's Suit King, shows up and cons David Niven into thinking he has won a free suit from the suit of the month club. This leads to more problems, getting into deeper water with the boss for allowing Simpson into the office to solicit.

A few days latter a dejected and depressed Niven shows up at the Suit Kings shop to cash in his prize ticket. A surprised Simpson calls his assistant, Stanley (Alvin Greenman) Greenman played Alfred in the 1947 classic "Miracle On 34th Street" Quote: "Yeah, there's a lot of bad 'isms' floating' around this world, but one of the worst is commercialism. Make a buck, make a buck. Even in Brooklyn it's the same--don't care what Christmas stands for, just make a buck, make a buck. " Greenman also has some great lines in this film.

A few days later the suit is ready and Niven is forced to wear the new garment. At this point, his life is changed forever. He is mistaken for a race track tout, Whistled at by women. Mistaken for a gangster named the "Dude" and picked up by the police.

With new found confidence, he gets the job and the girl!

This is an awesome show and gives Niven a chance to perform the kind of wry comedy that he does so wonderfully!
