Clothes make the man...
16 February 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a very silly episode of "Four Star Playhouse" but despite a completely ludicrous plot, it works. When the show begins, Philip (David Niven) is a milquetoast Walter Mitty type who day dreams a lot and has some great ideas...but he's just not assertive. Because of this, he's very unlikely to get his promotion...and in fact he might just get laid off. But, when he meets up with an obnoxious suit salesman (Jesse White) who offers him a free suit, his life changes considerably...even though the suit ends up being just awful!

The cheap gangster suit was pretty funny and seeing the change in Philip was pretty cute. Not a great episode but one that made me smile--and that is plenty of reason to watch this one. Well worth seeing.
