As big fan of MeTV, this is the first time ever that a married couple in the early sixties TV series of any kind, showing a married couple in bed together. In those days it was always separate beds. This was the beautiful Sara Shane's second to the last performance before leaving America forever. She moved to Australia for a smog free healthy life.
