Barbara Eden Was No Marilyn Monroe . . .
. . . but she made the show. Young, beautiful and the quintessential "dumb blonde" you hear about so often, Barbara Eden made this series work.
The entire show was fast and sweet and quite enjoyable. It loosely followed the movie and provided some laughs.
Filmed in black and white, with the canned laugh track fully operational, it followed the exploits of three young ladies - Mike, Loco and Greta - as they tried to snare themselves three very rich husbands. They could hardly afford to eat (and yet, in each episode, they wore more designer clothes per minute then you'd see on any Paris runway), but they managed to afford a penthouse apartment on the right side of the track. As this was not shown on network television, they never benefitted from syndication or a reunion special but as it was so sweet and funny, I sort of wish there could be one.
