Premise / Background:
Shirley MacLaine starred as photojournalist, Shirley Logan, on assignment for "World Illustrated" magazine.
Shirley looks great. To date, Shirley MacLaine's only television series. She plays a globetrotting photo-journalist
for a glossy magazine called "World Illustrated". Shirley was reputedly, uneasy about the whole production and it does
show in some of her acting here. However if you want to see Shirley looking her very best, with some drama and travelogue
scenery thrown in, then check this show out. That is of course if you can find it.

The previous year, 1971, Sheldon Leonard also produced another ITC comedy
series "From A Bird's Eye View" starring Millicent Martin.

Among the directors on the series were Charles Chrichton
