Why would Pam what HIM??!!
20 April 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Ken (Johnny Carson) is a mama's boy, through and through. While he plans on spending his vacation with his mega-hot girlfriend, Pam (Anne Francis), when Ken's mom asks him to drop everything and come there instead, he does....and disappoints Pam...as they had plans. Pam shocks him when she shows up at his parents' house...and she really impresses Ken's dad (Frank McHugh)...but his mother (Glenda Farrell) hates him because....well...she'd hate anyone who 'stole her baby away from her'! Although Pam makes a terrific meal and is a lovely houseguest, she eventually gets tired of Ken's indifference and his mother's antagonism...and she leaves. Soon after, one of Ken's mother's friends brings by a beautiful girl for him to meet.

When you look at Johnny Carson and see what a weasel he is, you wonder what ANY woman would want in this guy. And, in the meantime, you feel really bad for Pam as she's much like Mary Poppins....practically perfect in every way! This is a deficit in this teleplay....she's wonderful and he's just a big knucklehead and you can't see any sane woman wanting him. Overall, interesting...but flawed.
