Synopsis by Hal Erickson
During the 1970s, British TV fans were treated to two different sitcoms bearing the title You're Only Young Twice, both of which used a retirement home as a comedy backdrop. The first of these series was set at the Twilight Lodge Home, where in typical TV fashion the elderly occupants ruled the roost whether the authorities liked it or not. Of interest to Stanley Kubrick fans was the presence in the cast of Adrienne Corri, who played the rape victim in 1970's Clockwork Orange, but was here cast as the imperious Lottie Orchard, head matron at Twilight Lodge. This version of You're Only Young Twice was created by Jack Trevor Story; its six half-hour episodes were telecast in the U.K. from July 5 to August 9, 1971.
