Arthur Kennedy and Phyllis Thaxter
1 January 2012 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Change of Address" is a strong episode filled with melancholy, featuring Arthur Kennedy as Keith Hollands, a middle aged playboy seeking a younger lifestyle, only held back by his wife Elsa (Phyllis Thaxter), who has been recovering from a bad fall on the ski slope. Keith is enamored of a Malibu beachhouse and wants to buy it, but Elsa hates the water, and anyone pretty nearby who might tempt her husband's easily wandering eye. The banter between the pair is rarely warm, as Keith displays little concern for his wife's fears about their new home, which only grow worse over time. Seeking answers about the house's background, Elsa decides to write the wife of the previous owner, now supposedly living in Texas, while the owner resides in Seattle, still receiving his wife's mail. Kennedy makes a suitably cold villain, while the attractive Phyllis Thaxter still fills out her swimsuit quite nicely, never once losing audience sympathy. Among another superb cast is Royal Dano as the real estate man, and the teenaged Tisha Sterling as the object of Keith's desires (her mother, Ann Sothern, appears in the very next episode).
