A gem of a find with Mayberry’s own fun girl Jean “Hello Doll” Carson (TCNW #66: Jean Carson Interview) as the focus.
In answer to a request by caller Kyle heard in TCNW #78, I was looking around for other work our Mayberry friends did outside of The Andy Griffith Show and I found “Plan for Escape” (November 17, 1952).
“Plan for Escape” was an episode of the CBS-TV anthology series Studio One (a.k.a. Westinghouse Studio One in honor of the sponsor of the show). The story is a damsel-in-distress type gangster story and is basically a play filmed live. Jean plays Mary Warren who is a cocktail-lounge singer.
I thought you might like hearing Mayberry’s Daphnie sing as well as a bit of the dialog. The song is “I Only Saw Him Once” by Joan Whitney/Alex Kramer.
