Barbara Eden once again shines in "The Sea Island Story" ep of "How to Marry a Millionaire"
tavm from Baton Rouge, La.
22 July 2012
"Oil. The black gold. Symbol of sudden wealth. Men have sweated,
starved, and even died in the endless search for it." "They were silly,
there's a much easier way of getting it." "Oh, really, what's that,
lady?" "Marry it." I put the above quotes there because of the irony of
them being said in a series starring Barbara Eden-who I believe said
some of those quotes-who would reteam with her "I Dream of Jeannie"
co-star Larry Hagman in the last season of the original "Dallas".
Anyway, here she's Loco Jones who because of her "useless information"
concerning everything comics, is persuaded by roommate Greta Hanson
(Lori Nelson) to appear on her game show-where she models on-to win
$2000 to go to Sea Island. But there are some building blocks to
recover from, like Loco's getting tongue-tied when money is mentioned
or her claustrophobia concerning the isolation booth...Another funny ep
I watched on YouTube with Ms. Eden very much a joy to watch whether
doing her facial expressions or almost tripping over occasionally.
Really, I highly enjoyed seeing this obscure show on YouTube. A couple
more eps are on the site so watch this space under my username for
review of those...
