The dreadful music sure didn't help this one!
15 May 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A woman gets some flowers from a stranger and she spends the rest of the show worrying about who sent them as well as freaking out every time she sees a strange doctor (Yul Brynner--sporting white thinning hair). Is there anything to it...or is the lady simply a nut?

While I did not like this episode of "Studio One", I sure can respect what they did. Think about it--each week the show presented a LIVE one-hour play to America! So, even if the shows are sometimes rough, you sure have to admire what they did. Plus, some episodes (such as "Twelve Angry Men") are brilliant classics. While "Flowers From a Stranger" isn't all that good, for 1949 (the very earliest period in commercial TV history) it's good. So what didn't I like? Well, some of the acting is a bit shrill and overdone--and reactions seemed WAY overboard. The script was a bit silly. And, most importantly, the crappy organ music is just awful--and a carryover from the old radio programs of the time. It comes off as pretty cheap--and silly.

By the way, if you are wondering about Brynner's hair, this was before he gained fame on Broadway for "The King and I" (later made into an Oscar-winning film). So, you get a chance to see him before he shaved it off for this role. Apparently, folks liked the hairstyle so much, Brynner kept it shaved from then on--and it became his trademark look.
