A delightful episode of Scxhlitz Playhouse with Myrna Loy in top form
A delightful episode, it was written originally as the TV debut of William Powell who was to be reunited with his old Thin Man co-star Myrna Loy. Powell eventually bowed out pleading ill health and slipped into permanent retirement. Loy continued as the understanding middle aged wife of Tom Helmore who almost has a fling with the young and delightful Jill St. John. Loy was never as warm and wonderful as here. Miss Loy has written in her autobiography that she initially was displeased with the drop dead gorgeous St. John but eventually appreciated her qualities as a comedienne. Helmore was starring in TV episodes at this time while making movies in which he had small roles. In Vertiogo he excelled as Jimmy Stewart's college pal and in Advise And Consent he was the British ambassador.
