Storyline

April Lopez (Charo) is back again, this time as a Spanish tutor to Bradford York (David Hedison), the proper headmaster of a New England boys' boarding school. Brad was widowed four years earlier and wouldn't approve of her chanteuse habits, which may go on display when the planner/entertainer cancels and Stubing (Gavin MacLeod) presses Julie (Lauren Tewes) to find a replacement. Lonely widow Grace Bostwick (Jane Powell) plans to throw herself overboard, but a white-suited man named Gabriel (Hugh O'Brian) claims to be her guardian angel and may be able to stop her. After ten years of marriage, newly-divorced George and Gwen Finley (Gene Rayburn and Jayne Meadows) are vacationing, together, on the same cruise. But their enjoyment is cut short when both of them suffer injuries and wind up in the infirmary, together. Written by Maisie Fleckum

Jane Powell Appears On Love Boat
22 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"April in Boston/Saving Grace/Breaks of Life" is the 23rd episode of the fifth season of The Love Boat. The guest stars appearing on it are Charo,David Hedison,Jane Powell,Hugh O'Brian,Gene Rayburn and Jayne Meadows.

The cruise of the Pacific Princess brings us the same predictable romantic stories.First,we meet former couple and recently divorced George and Gwen Finley surprised that they are on the same cruise.They get into an accident and find themselves surprisingly together as patients.Meanwhile,the Spanish tutor April Lopez is back as a Spanish tutor of the boys of New England.Brad,who got widowed four years ago does not approve of her habit and complains about her to Captain Stubing and the Cruise Director Julie to find someone new.Finally,Grace Bostwick is going to have a suicide attempt by throwing herself overboard but a fellow male passenger who claims to be her guardian angel stops her.

Despite the fact that the viewers are treated to the same predictable stories of passengers or divorces falling for each other,it was interesting to see 50's actress Jane Powell as a guest in it.She was definitely known as the leading ladies of Fred Astaire back in the day and was well-known as an actress,singer and dancer of hits such as Royal Wedding (1951), A Date with Judy (1948) with friend Elizabeth Taylor, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers(1954) with Howard Keel.
