Cool Sounds of the 60's
9 January 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Good peek at cool jazz sounds, circa 1960. Buzz and Tod get mixed up with confused wife (Francis) of jazz trumpeter (Lord). Trouble is she's the muse for his music so he's possessive as heck and she's suffocating. Guess who she latches onto. Good Malibu settings, including the creeping cliffside trolley. Francis is lovely, as usual, but doesn't mind looking disheveled, while singer Bostock does a couple Peter Gunn-type solos. The first shot is Tod taken to hospital, so there's built-in suspense as Buzz tells in flashback what happened. It's really more a Maharis showcase since Tod doesn't get many lines or screen time. And, oh yes, writer Silliphant gets to drop in some of his choice philosophical dialog, unusual for this Ozzie & Harriet period. All in all, it's an entertaining episode in the exceptional 66 mode.
