'MacMillan & Wife'
"Point Of Law'

When Mac was finally home from two weeks with the Naval Reserve where he had worked hard to save a young woman in the Navy from being convicted of murder, Sally decided to tease him by denying him her sexual favors.  She professed an interest in watching a late night movie instead and while looking through the TV Guide, she found the perfect one - "King Kong Vs. Mighty Joe Young".

There are two ways to look at this.  Sally could have just made that title up as part of her teasing.  Or there really was a movie in Toobworld by that title and she really did see it listed in the Guide.

I think you know where I stand on this.....

If it was a real movie in Toobworld, it was probably made in the 1950s.  Mainly because the original "Mighty Joe Young" film came out in 1949, but also because it had to be around long enough to be relegated to the late night lineups.

This could be one of those movies directed overseas by Cortland Evans when he was blacklisted in America.  As for actors in it (besides the guys in the ape suits), maybe it was one of Dash Riprock's first leading roles, with Quirt Manly as the already established main actor.

"Point Of Order" was the last episode of 'MacMillan & Wife'.  Susan Saint James left the series and it continued on as just 'MacMillan'.  Apparently, Sally died in a plane crash at some point between the two iterations of the series.

I've always held on to the belief that it was a small plane and that Mac had somehow fixed it so that it would crash, killing all those on board.  (Hopefully just Sally and the pilot.)

Yes... I'm declaring Stuart MacMillan to have been a murderer who got away with it.
