I too hope that C. Weinstein remains among us. FYI, in the first season
of Dobie Gillis, Warren Beattie played the rich kid (Chatsworth Osborne
III), and Tuesday Weld played the siren (muse) and her character's name
was Thalia Menninger. Max Shulman was having a conversation with someone
other than my fourteen year old psyche. He landed a haymaker with
Maynard G. Krebs (from which I never recovered).
All the best,
