Episode Summary

EDIT
The Bird of Warning
AIRED:
Diana Hyland plays a rich girl who has been arrested for drunk driving. Turns out she is an ex-fiancee of Hank Tabor, Sam Benedict's assistant, played by Richard Rust. He takes her in hand, for old time's sake, and suffers the consequences, though he ends up figuring out what her problem is and it isn't really drinking, it's a chemical imbalance. Nice scenes with those two. Another story involves the guest star George Tobias as a Hungarian who owns an ethnic restaurant. He's 80, married to a 42 year old and they want to divorce, but of course, Sam saves their marriage!moreless

  • Chemistry between Richard Rust and Diana Hyland

    9.6
    I have an 8x10 of Rust/Hyland from this episode, and they look like two young actors from one of the best eras of television; fresh, happy and talented. They are so good in this that I\'ve watched it more than a few times since I\'ve owned it. It was very hard to find, too. I don\'t remember this show at all, but when I realized I could find some Rust performances, that became my mission, finding Sam Benedicts. Hyland acts as a poor little rich girl who drinks too much. Rust is of course the co-star of this show with Edmond O\'Brien, in this episode taking the case of his former fiancee, feeling the kind of emotions you feel when you run into an ex of any sort. Rust passed in 1994, Hyland in 1977, it\'s bittersweet to see them, while missing them.moreless
