I am not sure there was much of a point to all this.

Because this episode of "Four Star Playhouse" stars Ronald Colman, and I love seeing him in just about anything, I am glad I watched it. As usual, his charm and grace were in's just too bad the script seemed to be a bit ill-defined.

Colman plays a psychiatrist--the analyst-type that was very popular back in the mid-20th century. So, he has the typical couch, asks a lot of questions and is generally non-directive in his approach most of the time (in other words, not much like a modern therapist). This episode is set during one of his days...and involves his listening to the problems of three women. In each case, he finds himself drifting into a daydream as he stares at a Dali style painting--and soon you see him acting out his fantasies with the women. One is a bit alarming, as it's obvious that he's having some counter-transference issues (with some romantic notions towards his client), but the other three are pretty funny. However, the sum total of all this is very slight and the exact point isn't very clear. In some ways, however, this could have made for an interesting series--but it all just needed to be hashed out more in order for viewers to want to watch.
