The Power Game: Lady For a Knight (ITV 20 Dec 1965, with Rosemary Leach)

Published

on


In Lady For a Knight, the second episode of the series, John Wilder has arrived at Blighs’, bringing along with him Don Henderson as his right hand man (along with both of their secretaries.) There is a problem though, both John and Caswell Bligh are on the board of the National Export Board and the chairman doesn’t want two men from the same company on the board – but who will go?

This is the cue for all sorts of machinations from both Wilder and Bligh, with executive officer Susan Weldon somewhat caught in the middle. Bligh at one stage thinks he has got the better of Wilder but of course he is no real match for John. Especially when John realises that he needs to get on the right side of Susan Wilder, who it has to be said, is very quick to hop into bed with the much older, overweight Wilder.

The TV Times of the week had a short piece about Rosemary Leach, the role of Susan Weldon was something of a breakthrough for her.
