JANE FINDS THE DINNER PARTY A DRAG!
This anthology series from Anglia Television was introduced each week by Orson Welles, in the same vein as Roald Dahl did on the later Anglia series "Tales Of The Unexpected". This series featured 26 episodes and mixed stories of mystery and suspense with the supernatural in some episodes... This episode features Joan as Jane Blake, the wife of business man Edmond (Rodgers) who helps him to clinch a deal by devious means!
JANE WONDERS WHERE ALL THE BIG WIGS ARE GONE!
I don't have much background on this series, like so many old British series they were rarely shown after their original screenings. However I believe a UK dvd release of the series is on the cards from the wonderful Network DVD label.. No date as yet, but be assured as soon as I find out, it will appear here as I am so looking forward to seeing not only Joan's episode but the full series!
