One of my all-time favorites!
24 July 2004 | by appleimacdudeSee all my reviews

When I saw this series many years later, I vaguely remembered occasionally seeing it when I had been sick as a child and missed school - it was in re-runs at that time, during the day. It is so interesting to see this series, and to realize how provocative it was for the time - late 50's and early 60's. I think it was much better than Executive Secretary "renamed Susie" which was the first of her two series. In one episode, Katy realized she could successfully manage the hotel herself, but that she would have to be very unpopular by being forceful with the staff - her quote "I don't want to set the world on fire, just a few of its male citizens" or something similar to that. I love Ann Sothern's comedy!
