Skyport (1959-60)

George Moon as Ginger Smart

Bland half hour drama that takes place at a small airport in England. George Moon is Ginger Smart from the World Wide Travel Agency. Lisa Gastoni is Pooch an airport official that helps passengers from overseas.

September 10,1959 episode: “The Spanish Girl” – Mari-Carmen (Eira Heath) arrives and has a cancelled work permit. She’s supposed to be met by Mr.Galbraith. She says he’s her employer and hired her to be a mother’s helper. She’s interviewed by Ginger who tries to help. It helps that he’s smitten with her. His Spanish could use some work so he needs Pooch (Lisa Gastoni) to help out.

Mari-Carmen is looking around the airport. No one is there to meet her. Then a Mr.Hamilton shows up in a limo and she goes with him. Things get strange as she’s spotted back at the airport. Ginger finds her in the bar trying to hide behind a newspaper. Immigration officer David Kinnerton wants to talk with her.

It doesn’t look good. She doesn’t know her permit had been cancelled. Turns out she from a wealthy family and left the country without telling them so she could marry an English boy. There was an arranged marriage set up by her family which was more like a business arrangement and she wanted nothing to do with it.

There’s a nice little twist to it all and the very end is good for an ironic chuckle.

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
