Dearest Enemy

Show Summary

Dearest Enemy is a special series, based on the successful broadway musical of the same title, which originally aired in 1955. The story is based around real-life events during the American Revolutionary War. Acting as a military agent for General George Washington, Mary Lindley Murrey (Cornelia Otis Skinner) detains British troops by serving them wine and cake in her parlor, allowing a large band of military soldiers to assemble for battle. While entertaining the enemy army, however, Mary's daughter Jane loses sight of their military mission and falls in love with British General Tyron's son Harry. Mary's niece Betsy Burke (Anne Jeffreys) is also struggling with her duties because of an ongoing relationship with British Captain Sir John Copeland (Robert Sterling), which runs hot-and-cold.
