Rendezvous Hotel

kalish jeff greenwood carliner

(CBS, 7/11/1979, 120 mins). “Love Boat” transposed to a posh resort hotel best describes this prospective pilot to a comedy series that ultimately never saw the light of night. The hotel, run by a madcap family headed by Bill Daily (long one of the second bananas on “The Bob Newhart Show”) and Jeff J. Redford as his somewhat scatterbrained nephew, caters to assorted unpredictable guests availing themselves of the resort’s advertised bliss. Subsequently, the film was shaved down to 90 minutes by merely lopping off the final couple of reels and tacking on the original wrap-up.
