The Return of Vicki Russell
19 May 2008 | by rwint1611See all my reviews

Julie Newmar returns in the character of Vicki Russell. Here she is in Memphis and engaged to be married to Robert Webber. Like in her first series appearance, 'How Much a Pound is Albatross', she rides around on a motorcycle, but this time she is followed around by a 'babysitter' in a van who is paid by her very rich family to keep an eye on her and keep her out of trouble.

This episode features some great examples of writer Stirling Siliphant's now famous 'poetic dialogue'. It also has a very exciting and well shot sky diving sequence. This was filmed during the period where Maharis was suffering from hepatitis so Milner appears solo. This episode also has the novelty of being one of the few times in any series where the star never once makes direct contact with the guest star.

Grade: A-
