Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 10 ratings.
While this show may sound trashy, It's actually a tasteful, classy, and charming TV series showing what 1950's america was interested in. While parts of it are dated, Much of it is quite enjoyable. I wish some network/channel would re-run old programs like this (Perhaps PBS), which are entertaining and smart. The only bad thing is that the 4th episode on the disc is a little weaker than the rest, But it is still very enjoyable. Recommended to those who enjoy the lesser-known delights of 50's TV.
I had forgotten about this TV series until I found it in your catalog listing. I had also forgotten how entertaining the series was. Thanks
for digging this old stuff up.
