Sultry songbird seduces Captain Holden
12 October 2007 | by ejrjrSee all my reviews

Darren McGavin as Captain Grey Holden meets his match in the Julie the English nightingale who ironically is employed by con-artist Samson J. Binton, alleged mentor of P.T. Barnum. Captain Holden and his partner Bill Blake (a young Noah Berry, who you may remember as Jim Rockford's father in the Rockford Files) are about to lose their riverboat if they cannot quickly raise money to pay their loan.

Along comes Samson J. Binton and his troupe of entertainers who need transport to New Orleans to play a gig starring Julie. But, Binton does not have any money. However, he is willing to pledge his contract as collateral.

Unfortunately, Julie has decided that it is time for a lifestyle change and wants to return to nature and be one of the "real" people. Of course if she does not perform in New Orleans, then Binton does not get paid and in turn Holden does not get paid and loses his boat. The rest you can figure as this is television drama during 1961. By the way, Julie is truly a living doll.
