I would love to see an update of this show!
13 September 2006 | by appleimacdudeSee all my reviews

I thought this show was excellent - Loni Anderson was great as a showgirl who married a young rich husband - who unfortunately passed away - leaving her to defend herself against the remaining family members of her late husband, who want her to get none of the money, and to simply be out of the picture. While she wants to be fair, she intends to take care of herself also, and not be pushed out of what is rightfully hers.

The supporting cast was fantastic, though I wish I could remember the names - James Cromwell was the yuppie husband of his evil socialite wife, who is a great actress. Jack Elam was fantastic, and had he not passed away a couple of years back, would have been great to have seen in an update.

I thought this show was intelligent - it showed some of the world of the "snobs" - including some of the very real pressures on them, in a very comical setting. And of course, Loni Anderson looked great!
