Barbara Shares Her Cherry Nut Parfait
28 August 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

When Steve (Fred MacMurray) gets ready to go out with some important business executives, Barbara (Beverly Garland) suggests he invite his work friends over for dinner. Still a newlywed, Barbara hasn't encountered many of Steve's work-related friends, yet. She thinks her "cherry nut parfait" will be a tasty treat. Barbara tries to arrange a perfect dinner party, but things do not go according to plan. The entire cast appears in this episode, but it's mainly Ms. Garland's show. The plot is a familiar one in situation comedies. As usual, the best versions were delivered by Lucille Ball and her show's writers. An interesting bit has Barbara and Steve in a "silent movie" dream, with Uncle Charley (William Demarest) as a fussy maid. And, Garland shows a lot of skin for a family show, when bending over in her slip.
