Dreadful.
4 September 2020 | by jromanbakerSee all my reviews

I was curious about this series, so I watched a few episodes. It was after all based on the first Cinemascope film of the same title directed by Jean Negulesco. That was no masterpiece but enjoyable, but what I saw was pitifully badly acted especially by Barbara Eden in the Marilyn Monroe role, and both Merry Anders and Lori Nelson were almost as bad. If this is an example of American family viewing of 1957 then I am sorry America was so hypocritical in what ' families ' should see. A threesome of gold diggers seeking rich men is not exactly a subject for families - or was it ? The series probably had no realisation that it was leading the way into ' normalised ' prostitution. As for the direction I noticed none and it was visually drab. The original film was at least witty and well acted. Was this a true example of television of the time ? If it was then I am happy true cinema survived.
