1/27/61: "The Clover Throne"
11 April 2015 | by schappe1See all my reviews

In the early 60's if you wanted an actress to play a teenage sexpot, it depended on whether you wanted a blonde, (Joey Heatherton) or a brunette,(Anne Helm). In this one, Anne Helm plays "Sweet Thing", (I kid you not). She was actually somewhat older than Joey and some of the other actresses who have appeared in this series so far, (born 9/12/38), but didn't look it. But she was pretty and curvy and had that 'jailbait' look to her. Per her IMDb bio, she'd been a showgirl at the Copacabana at age 16. I think she was probably a better actress than the others but she got stuck in these type of rolls and her career basically ended when she out-grew them. She wound up illustrating children's books.

Adam Darcy Goss, (Jack Warden), spends his day sitting in his favorite chair and taking pot shots at anyone who brothers Sweet Thing or threatens to take away his land, which a road-building construction crew led by DeForest Kelly is threatening to do. Sweet Thing bothers Tod and Buz and also members of the construction crew. What she really wants to do is find out where Adam has hidden a large sum of money he claims to possess. This one is more interesting for the cast than the story, although there are a couple of good twists at the end.
