Trivia

In "The Duchess Assignment", the Duchess of Royston was based on the distinguished British stage actress 'Dame Edith Evans (I)', best known for her role as Lady Bracknell in the film version of Oscar Wilde's novel, The Importance of Being Earnest (1952). This is reinforced by Ray Barrett's marvelous voice for the character, which understandably had the rest of the cast in stitches at the recording session. See more »
