PHILLIP & CRICKET, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS
Y&R has had many memorable moments; the "Lady in Red" fantasy wasn't one of them. Unfortunately, the audience had to view this "extravaganza" not once but twice because the segment was rerun. Clad in evening wear, Phillip and Cricket were placed on a terrace to do a Fred and Ginger routine. Instead of looking like bon vivants tripping the light fantastic, the actors appeared awkward and ill-at-ease executing what should have been graceful dance movements. It was more gesture-by-numbers than anything else. Let's hope that Gene Kelly didn't see the SInging In The Rain-type finale. The fantasy was far more appropriate for someone older -- at least over twenty-one.
