Armchair Theatre: Foot In The Door (ITV 1969, Frank Finlay)



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.
