Unsung heroines
23 October 2017 | by russedavSee all my reviews

As in the classic Olympics of yesteryear before today's crass sellouts where 10s are a dime a dozen, in classic understatement I never give 10s, so don't let my "9" fool you, as it's the highest I give. I was glad to see both Hayes & Natwick nominated for an Emmy for this show (1974?) but was sad it had to go to just the latter. Having seen all the episodes I can vouch for how their brilliant & intuitive tag-team acting and repartee is just outstanding. As some have said, they were evidently ahead of their time to a sadly unappreciative audience undeserving of them. If you ever have the chance to get the DVDs, take it; you'll be glad you did, seeing these two classic gems shine easily carrying their lesser costars, growing not just older but better. The great Hayes didn't gain the title "First Lady of the American Theater" for nothing, and outstanding Natwick is surely her peer!
