  • Gettin' downright ophidious

    Once again a fun cast is able to percolate the campiness in this one, although here the comedic elements (or attempts thereof anyway) are more overt. Keenan Wynn is a delight as a diamond (or rhinestone) in the rough, making the refined Dr Hyatt raise more than one eyebrow throughout the show. And John Fiedler plays his trademark nagging fussbudget to a tee. The countess is also a lot of fun. One parenthetical note: not quite sure how the snake survived for so long...but anyway, it's doubtless best not to let such considerations interfere with one's enjoyment.
