Pen pals
30 June 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

One of the stranger episodes of 77 Sunset Strip ever done. I don't believe that either Jackie Russell's part as an heiress or Wynn Pearce's as the Bel-Air Hermit.

For one thing Russell sure never struck me as a plain Jane type who had anonymous pen pals. She looked like she would have no trouble making real friends.

As for Pearce he would have gotten to a place a lot more remote than Bel-Air if he was hiding from the mob, specifically Tol Avery whose money this former wizard of Wall Street invested.

Efrem Zimbalist is hired to protect Russell and Edd Byrnes and Louis Quinn assist. Of course it all works out.

Not one of their better stories.
