THIS IS THE OPENING FOR HONEY WEST, A FEMALE DETECTIVE SERIES STARRING ANNE FRANCIS. IT RAN ON ABC FOR ONE SEASON IN 1966.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
ABC should have given it a better time slot.
@Gnillob802 Maybe……it would be interesting to keep it set in the ’60s…
@Robo1415 Set to go a few years ago then flops from Angelina Jolie (known at the time for sucking Billy Bob Thorton’s blood & making out with her brother) & Halle Berry (Catwoman even closed down her Bond spinoff project) showed a strong woman heroine didn’t sell tickets. Angelina’s PR people got her to adopt orphans & Halle Berry won an Oscar for doing to Billy Bob Thorton what Angelina used to do, so now we like strong heroines again (SALT). Maybe Honey West isn’t dead.
@OsonsLaVertu peut-être mais la meilleure est Madame PEEL !
@OsonsLaVertu Non, c’est homage!
There was supposed to be a Honey West feature movie coming out back in the ’90s….Wonder what happened…
imitation de Emma Peel, non ?
I faintly recall watching this show as a kid in the 60′s. Too bad it didn’t last longer. Even as a boy I realized what a HOT babe Anne Francis was (and she still looks WONDERFUL!). Hubba hubba to the max, daddy-o! THANKS for sharing this delightful “blast from the past” with us!
I have not watched tv as an adult but I did watch this as a 10 yo girl. I would dream I was honey west in the black cat suit and still have vivid memories of the adventures!
They looked so much more appealing back in those days!
What a Babe Anne Francis was !
It only ran for one season? Wow. But it made an
indelible mark on me because I remember it so well.
I can’t believe this ran for only one season! I don’t remember much specifically about the show other than I watched it regularly.
Absolutely not. You’re thinking of some other actress, maybe Barbara Payton.
wasnt the actress here arrested for solicitation after she fell on hard times?
me too!!!!! i eevn had a fake molar place around the same area she has ( on her face of course_)
i was just about to ask about that
I wanted to be a detective like her.
that was one hot woman!
i loved this show and her thanks for the post
Both Alicia Silverstone and Rene Zwellwieger were attached to the big screen remake at one time but the project was scuttled after the performance of action films starring women in the lead failed to attract an audience (see various projects by Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, etc…)
You are correct sir. Just one correction. Gomer Pyle was a mega-smash on CBS
It was cancelled because it had the same time slot as that NBC mega-smash Gomer Pyle.
This would be a GREAT candidate for a modern-day remake, maybe a feature film or a tv series.
Just curious as to who would be good actresses and actors for for a remake?
