Wow terrible show
29 December 2017 | by lilsheba2001See all my reviews

First off it wasn't made in the late 50's it was made in 1961. Secondly I had no idea this show even existed. I watched it out of curiosity since I work for Wells Fargo and it's horrible acting and direction. Yikes. I'm sorry I watched the one episode I did!
