Lane Bradbury and Claire Wilcox
24 February 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Love at First Slight" was the first episode to focus on David Cassidy's Keith Partridge, specifically designed as a response to his growing fan base. Keith has grown weary of having girls chase him everywhere he goes, from school to the library, Reuben logically concluding that the time to worry is when they stop chasing him. Meanwhile, Keith discovers one pretty girl named Janet (Lane Bradbury) not impressed by show business, ducking out on his persistence at every turn. Shirley herself has grown attached to one particular Keith Partridge fan, the teenaged Cathy (Claire Wilcox), who gets so nervous in his presence she can hardly speak; eventually he finds that, as The Rolling Stones recently sang, "You Can't Always Get What You Want," unable to deny the genuine adoration of Cathy, as opposed to the frank honesty of Janet, who only tried to let him down easy. The final role for child actress Claire Wilcox would come in the later episode "Whatever Happened to Keith Partridge?" The featured song, "Somebody Wants to Love You," composed by Wes Farrell, Mike Appel, and Jim Cretecos, was currently the B-side of their first single, "I Think I Love You," both included on THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY ALBUM (this song reappears briefly in "Did You Hear the One About Danny Partridge?").
