John Astin as the Melba Toast Baron
16 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Diary of a Mad Millionaire" casts John Astin (THE ADDAMS FAMILY) as reclusive millionaire Sydney Rose, dubbed 'The Melba Toast Baron' by Danny, who knows everything about him. Like Howard Hughes, the shy, retiring type, 'Uncle Sydney' is reluctant to be seen in public without a disguise, attending The Partridge Family's next performance as a bearded hippie- an audience of one! (200 tables up front). A perceptive reporter finally gets the goods on the mystery man, who realizes that the public is far less inquisitive than he at first thought. John Astin, in his many guises, enjoys one of his finest roles, while Shirley's old friend Sari Price, making her fourth and final appearance, shows up as Sydney's date (lucky girl!). There are a record three songs featured in this episode: the unreleased "God Bless You Girl," composed by Irwin Levine and L. Russell Brown (the same footage previously seen in "This Male Chauvinist Piggy Went to Market"); "It Sounds Like You're Saying Hello" (heard only briefly), composed by Terry Cashman and T. P. West, from the just released seventh LP CROSSWORD PUZZLE; and the appropriate rocker "One Night Stand," taken from third LP SOUND MAGAZINE, composed by Wes Farrell and former hitmaker Paul Anka, soon to top the charts again with his comeback smash "(You're) Having My Baby."
