The Third Girl From the Left might have passed without notice had the film not been the highly touted TV-movie debuts of Kim Novak and Tony Curtis. Kim heads the cast as an ageing Las Vegas chorus girl, while Tony plays a third-rate nightclub comic. Determining that her romance with Curtis is dead-ending, Kim takes up with handsome young delivery boy Michael Brandon. The screenplay by Dory Previn (Andre's ex) paints a fairly bleak picture of the Vegas showbiz scene. Previn also supplies a song, "Gloria" sung not by Novak but by Curtis! Third Girl from the Left was originally telecast October 16, 1973.
