Oh, those psychedelic 60s. . .
9 November 2004 | by bekayessSee all my reviews

The production values of this TV musical are just too strange for words. If you've seen it, you know what I mean.

But Lee Remick is fun and sexy as Lola, and she sings quite well (if you've heard her in FOLLIES or ANYONE CAN WHISTLE, I'm sure you'll agree). Jerry Lanning, likewise (and he has a nice sexy bare chest, esp. for a 1960s leading man). Phil Silvers, though, bores me as the Devil, while Jim Backus makes the most of his role as the coach. And Linda Lavin shines as Gloria. Fran Allison (of Kukla, Fran and... ) unfortunately misses the mark as Joe's wife.

This is a 60's rarity that has to be seen to be believed--but don't look for it on DVD anytime soon...
