The Secret of Youth?
27 November 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

After working hard on a photoshoot and only her hand appearing in a magazine, Loco (Barbara Eden) looks to change agencies. She goes to Mr. Marachi (Charles La Torre) to have photographs taken and meets a fellow young model named Laurel Manners (Roxane Brooks). Laurel shares the same name as her mother, who was Marachi's first and favorite model. Through a misunderstanding Loco thinks she is her mother and 56 years old. She rushes Laurel to the head of her agency Barry Travers (Fred Robbins) who raves over how youthful she appears and decides to build a national campaign over it. Seeing how prosperous it could be for her, Laurel goes along and says her secret to youth is being a vegetarian. Loco begins shopping for health foods and exercising. Loco takes Marachi to meet Laurel and they are greeted by her mother (Helen Spring). Knowing the truth, the ladies try to find a way to prevent disaster.

The plot is way too unrealistic to buy into the episode.
