Daphne...a woman with issues.
5 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This story is set along the Italian Riviera. A rich American lady, Sarah (Nina Foch), and her daughter, Daphne (Katherine Crawford), are BOTH interested in the same man--a handsome sculptor named Hugo (Gig Young). When Daphne believes that he wants her mother and not her, she decides to do something really naughty. What? And how does Frederick (Peter Lorre) figure into all this?

I generally liked this episode. Daphne was a wonderfully complex and evil young lady---and she was very entertaining. My only reservation is that the ending seemed only okay. Still, compared to most modern shows, this is a heck of a lot better.
