A reprint of my review from February 5, 2014:
A newly unemployed reporter gets swept up in a strange and convoluted conspiracy while in Paris.
The Lady Was A Tiger was written especially for the Mystery Theater by Murray Burnett, and starred William Redfield, Joan Lorring, Roger De Koven, Ian Martin, and Chris Gampel.
The first time I listened to this espionage yarn, I did not pay close enough attention to it and got hopelessly lost inside of its seemingly countless plot twists and turns.
Looking over the notes I made during that first listen, I found it amusing that I filled an entire page with variations on the same comment. "Lots of exposition, plot turns, and such. But I really don't care." "Don't know what the hell is going on." "This episode gave me a headache." "Can't really say that I care about what this did, where it went, and how it got there."
How do you make a review out of that?
So, I gave The Lady Was A Tiger a second listen and...
While it made a little more sense, I still did not care all that much about what was going on. Spy stories that don't involve James Bond rarely hold my interest, so sitting through this episode felt like a chore. But if spy stories are your thing, then you might find something to like here.
