In this first episode of Sanford and Son's third season, Lamont Sanford (Demond Wilson) begins taking drama lessons from an attractive white woman named Marilyn (Maureen Arthur). Sensing potential in Lamont, Marilyn suggests that he learn the role of Shakespeare's Othello. The problem: Every time Lamont and Marilyn rehearse the climactic strangulation scene in his living room, his father Fred (Redd Foxx) -- or someone else -- pops in and jumps to the conclusion that Lamont is a murderer.
