Pretty Standard Fare
17 June 2009 | by sdquinn2-1See all my reviews

The television show "The Millionaire" has an interesting premise. Each week a random citizen was chosen to receive a million dollars, sort of like Publisher's Clearing House without actually entering the sweepstakes. Each week the story story revolved around how the sudden wealth affected the life of the person who was chosen to receive the sudden largess. This episode is available for viewing on You Tube. Pretty standard fare, about two sisters, one a homebody and one a money grubber who only wants to paint the town. The main reason I decided to comment on this show is the cast listing has the roles reversed. Virginia Grey's character is actually Iris Millar, and Olive Sturgiss plays Midge Millar. It is pretty self evident, because in the 50's Midge was considered a young girl's name while Iris was more of a mature woman's name. I have always liked Marvin Miller. That marvelous voice. I remember him from numerous radio appearances. DeForrest Kelly is also in this episode. He plays a dedicated doctor. All in all this is a pretty good episode, I give it 7 out of 10 stars.
