An overly complicated solution....

Robert Loggia stars as Mario Rubrioz. His mother sells a family heirloom--a ring which supposedly brings good luck. He is upset and MUST have it back. However, the shop then sold it to a spinster, Lucy Bram (Julie Harris), and instead of simply going up to her and saying "The ring was sold by mistake--it's a family heirloom. I'd like to buy it back" he instead concocts a stupid ruse. He offers his services as a guide to the woman and her two friends and he plans to romance away the ring! However, in the process, Mario comes to really care about Lucy. What is he to do?!

The acting is decent, though I wondered what sort of accent Loggia was supposed to be approximating. The story, while interesting, isn't the most logical you can find on "Kraft Suspense Theatre". As a result, it's interesting but kind of bizarre--and COULD have been a lot better. For example, if Mario tried to have a friend buy the ring back but Lucy refused, then the ruse would have made more sense. Additionally, Mario occasionally is a confusing character who explodes and overdoes a few scenes. After all, the part called for finesse--not explosive anger. It really makes the whole thing seem artificial and difficult to believe. Another rather disappointing episode--about the fourth in a row for this series. It's a shame, as at times this series was brilliant and exciting. In this case, it's a watchable but very flawed show.
