The Monkees travel to New York to meet a young producer, Mackinley Baker, at The Compton Plaza Hotel. Unfortunately, they find Baker just about to be evicted out of the room and themselves without any money for a place to stay. So, the group holds on to the room while Baker visits his backer. When this does not work out, they try convincing members of the Millionaire's club across the street to back Baker's play. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Foster Brooks and Susan Howard
6 January 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Everybody shines in "Monkees Manhattan Style," which finds the group hoping to star in a Broadway musical if they can secure producer Baker's backer. They try to hold on the their hotel room before the manager (Philip Ober) can evict them, while next door are a pair of newlyweds constantly being interrupted. Micky was never funnier, whether impersonating a quack doctor or a chic sheik, who believes the theatre is immoral...along with all his wives! The most notable cast member is 'lovable lush' Foster Brooks, in typical form as a boozy member of the 'Rabbit Breeders Convention,' who spends all his time in the bar waiting until his still-occupied room is ready. The groom, who has trouble opening a bottle of champagne, is played by Geoffrey Deuel (brother of Peter, from ALIAS SMITH AND JONES), while the pretty bride is played by Susan Howard, in only her second TV appearance, remembered for STAR TREK's "Wink of an Eye" (as the first female Klingon) and DALLAS. The butler at the Millionaire's Club is Doodles Weaver, brother of Pat, uncle of Sigourney, who offers priceless reactions to all The Monkees' impersonations. This is the second appearance for Nesmith's "The Girl I Knew Somewhere," the third and last for Neil Diamond's "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)," but the sole performance of the original Boyce and Hart production of their own "Words" (from Aug 15 1966), soon to be rerecorded by new producer Chip Douglas for the fourth LP, PISCES AQUARIUS CAPRICORN & JONES LTD (and B-side to fourth single "Pleasant Valley Sunday"). This slightly slower take, like the more familiar version, has both Micky and Peter sharing the lead vocals. Broadcast no. 30 (Apr 10 1967), "Monkees in Manhattan" was completed months earlier, 17th in production (Oct 5-7 1966).
