Bit of Trivia

Post by Joe »

Michelle Phillips who was in the The Mamas & The Papas plays one of the main roles in "Paint Me A Murder" of the Hammer House of Mystery & Suspense series.

The Mamas & The Papas were a big part of the American popular music scene in the late 1960s with hits like "California Dreamin'" and "Monday, Monday". The band were two couples, one married couple and the other couple weren't married. It eventually became known that Michelle was having an affair with the other girl's (Mama Cass Elliot) bloke and Michelle's husband was carrying on with Cass, all behind each other's backs until all hell broke loose when they all got caught out. Amazingly the group survived all this shenanigans but did eventually split up for other reasons.

The Mamas & The Papas are one of my favourite groups so it was nice to see Michelle acting in this episode. The episode is not great though but she looked beautiful back then.
