HAZEL – Pilot Episode – 1961
The pilot episode of HAZEL featuring Edward Andrews as Mr. Baxter. I think the producers went with the right decision in replacing him with Don DeFore. Parts of this episode were edited into a new version, which we know as “Dorothy’s Birthday”. I really like how Booth played Hazel with an edge here–check her out during the card game scene! This is probably what the character would have been like had Thelma Ritter accepted the role.
