Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 60-minute TV comedy Dear Deductible stars Peter Falk as a popular but improvident songwriter. After spending all of his royalties, Falk agrees to marry heiress Janet Leigh-not because of her money, but because of her lack of money. Y'see, both Peter and Janet plan to file a joint income tax return, thereby enjoying the bounty of the IRS' "deductible" system. This will keep them both solvent until they can recoup their fortunes...oh, yeah? Written by Raphael David Blau, Dear Deductible was first telecast November 9, 1966, on the weekly Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre anthology.
