    I felt a strong Tennessee Williams influence. This LGDI was from 1949,
    and The Glass Menagerie won the Pulitzer in 1948. The movie was yet to come,
    but I’m sure the writers had seen the play.
    The Rose Petal Staircase has a different feel than most episodes, very airy,
    with some heavy-handed symbolism thrown in. Similar structure to TGM, with solid marble exchanged for fragile glass figurines. One is breakable, the other has a character broken upon it.

    I was never a big Liz Taylor fan, but might have liked her more if
    George and Brooksie were in the background of Night of the Iguana or
    Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, investigating a mystery and wrapping up a case before the curtain drops.
