Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It's likely that the 60-minute pilot Brilliant Benjamin Boggs had been gathering dust on the shelf for nearly two years before its March 30, 1966 debut on NBC's Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre. Donald O'Connor stars as Benjamin Boggs, a brilliant but acutely unlucky research scientist. Guest star Susan Silo (a busy ingenue of the 1960s, a busier cartoon voiceover actress of the 1990s) plays a world-renowned big game hunter who sets her romantic sights on Mr. Boggs. She is determined to "bag" him for her own, and never mind that he's already married. Brilliant Benjamin Boggs was produced by Jack (Night Gallery)Laird for Universal Television.
