  • An English actor playing a japanese man?

    6.5
    I thought it was a real cute episode but I am somewhat disturbed by one thing. Richard Haydn with only a little eye makeup is not a very convincing Japanese businessman. Don't get me wrong. He played the part well enough as far as the acting and the voice is concerned. But they left his trademark hair and mustache alone which left him looking like, well, Richard Haydn, nothing more. If they maybe blackened his grey hair, cut it shorter, and powdered his face, maybe it would've been more convincing. Richard is naturally dark complected like someone from Central America, not on the lighter side like someone from Japan. There's not much 1960's makeup artists can do for his big nose either. But the way it was, he still looked completely Anglo-European. If I were Asian, I would be somewhat offended at the attempt to impersonate an Asian. You tell me.moreless

    Once again, Aunt Clara's boyfriend, Ocky, is treating her badly and Samantha is furious with him. Meanwhile, Larry asks Sam's help in entertaining a very important Japanese client, Mr. Mishimoto (Robert Haydn) for dinner. Aunt Clara believes that a traditional Japanese meal and setting would honour the guest the most and so, she sets a lovely table and dresses herself and Samantha in fetching kimonos. (Her majic is actually working properly for once!) Mr. Mishimoto is completely captivated by Aunt Clara and they end up spending several days and evenings together, making it impossible for Larry to talk business with him.



    When Samantha sees that things are getting too serious, she arranages for Ocky to call Aunt Clara and they make up over the telephone. Mr. Mishimoto is not happy when he finds that Aunt Clara has gone and heads off to the airport in a huff to return to Japan. Wanting to help Larry save his business transaction, Samantha arranges for Mr. Mishimoto to meet a beautiful young stewardess who immediately captivates him. When the two dine at the Stephens' house, Larry is relieved that he will finally be able to get the business done.moreless
  • Aunt Clara has broken up with bf Ocky, and it just so happens Larrys client Mashimoto is visiting from Japan and Sam decides it might help Clara forget Ocky. However, Ocky reconciles with Clara and Sam has to come up with another plan.moreless

    This is a significant episode because its the next to last appearance of Marion Lorne as Aunt Clara. But unlike most of the Clara episodes, this one has nothing to do with Clara losing her powers because of her age. Its more about her love life and like most of her appearances, its very sweet. Richard Haydn plays a Japanese businessmen(I know, I dont know why him either, but he actually does a credible job playing a Japanese). And when Clara reconciles with Ocky, Sam takes it upon herself to help this man for the sake of business. Of course, this is another Dick York-less episode, and his absence is really noticable here. There are already signs that Elizabeth Montgomery is just going through the motions.moreless
