This episode of "GE True Theater" has a rather impressive cast which includes Myrna Loy, Zachary Scott and Robert Preston. Loy is the star--a widow and mother of two who makes her living on the lecture circuit. However, the life is getting to her as she's so often on the road and barely gets to see her kids. Again and again, she threatens to quit but the slick agent (in the sort of role Zachary Scott could do best) is always able to manipulate her into sticking with her grueling schedule. Is she FINALLY going to be able to quit and be with her kids or will it remain business as usual? I don't want to say more about the plot--it might spoil it.

"It Gives Me Great Pleasure" is quite nice--light in mood and with a few comic moments that make it work well as a family program. Not brilliant, but with good acting, this is enough to make it worth your time.
