Old fashioned Gentlemen Lionel is a very wealthy chap and a great collector of art, seeing attractive woman Janet de Pelagia. He is pursued by the brash Gladys Ponsonby, another attractive woman, with lower morals then Lionel and Janet. Gladys spouts some poison about the innocent Janet, telling Lionel the relationship was a bore etc. Foolishly Lionel takes the bait, and sets about having revenge on the innocent Janet. Gladys had proudly shown off her painting, an image of herself painted by John, an interesting artist that paints only women

Worth seeing for the dancing at the very beginning, and it's quite an enjoyable little mystery, lacking a little bit of suspense, but there's still a clever, twisted story. It's been a few years since I watched them, I'll be honest I had no recollection of this one, possibly because the title has absolutely nothing to do with the story in any way.

Fine performances throughout, definitely one of the better acted episodes, John Cotton is good fun, Gloria Grahame is great. Maureen O'Brien is particularly lovely as Janet, and John Bennett is great in his small role too.

I like this one, 7/10
