Fox Movie Channel airs "The Pleasure Seekers" in December
Fox Movie Channel (check local listings in your area) will be airing Pamela's 1964 film, The Pleasure Seekers. The film is a frothy comic-melodrama tracing the romantic adventures of three American girls in exotic Madrid.
Loosely based on the 1954 film, Three Coins in the Fountain both films were directed by Jean Negulesco.
This version puts the spotlight on four musical performances by Ann-Margret sprinkled throughout the picture.
Pamela gives a fine comic turn as the innocent "Susie Higgins" who falls for Spanish playboy "Emilio Lacayo" (Tony Franciosa), who has a way with the women until "Susie" comes along and flips the script on him.
The cast is rounded out by the always beautiful Carol Lynley, Gardner McKay, Andre Lawrence, Brian Keith and the legendary Gene Tierney in what turns out to be her last big screen role.
The Pleasure Seekers will be airing December 23 and 28 at 11:30 am EST on the Fox Movie Channel, uncut, widescreen and commercial free.
