kill me while i'm young so I can die happy

a very touching episode dealing with mortality and loneliness. Maureen Stapleton plays a woman who's terminally ill and attempts suicide. while investigating this case dpt. Accra ( harry bell aver} develops an emotional attachment to her while dealing with his aged Italian mother who bemoans his being middle aged and single. the performances were both touching and amusing and just another illustration of the great writing that made naked city such a fine show. Seeing this show on DVD after more then forty years took me magically back to my childhood in the nineteen sixties when my parents TV set was always tuned to ABC-TV on Wednesday nights at ten pm
