Just Another Little Piece of My Heart...?
5 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Robert Stack' Segment Episode.

Howard Publications' 'CRIME' Magazine Editor the normally 'Resolute' Dan Farrell (Robert Stack) unexpectedly becomes romantically involved....and then finds himself totally 'out of his depth' when he falls for a Wild sexy Rock & Blues singer named Jesse Boone (brilliantly played by Sharon Farrell - clearly a character firmly set in the 'Janis Joplin' vein) while he is investigating a story on corruption in the Pop music business....

The sudden death of her entrepreneur creates unexpected tensions as Farrell finds himself unable to approach the investigation with his normal detachment and ice cold investigative reasoning due to his Romantic involvement with Jesse...

A powerful episode with a show stealing performance by Sharon Farrell, plus notable support from Michael Anderson, Russ Tamblyn, and Norman Fell among others...this story lifts the lid on the darker side of the Rock music industry...

Many subsequent real life Pop and Rock music business tragedies since this episode was filmed now set the tale in a sobering and far more realistic light.

Significant perhaps that Jesse Boone herself ends up on the cover of 'CRIME' Magazine at the episode's conclusion...?
