Comedy drama Foot In The Door was made for the Armchair Theatre strand of plays and focused on former schoolteacher turned travelling salesman David Field who has a real problem with knocking on doors and is convinced he is not cut out to be a salesman; His cousin, who just happens to be a real sales pro, is drafted in to help.
The young Jack Wild, then riding high thanks to the movie version of Oliver, pops up here as a schoolboy.
