What a scheming jerk!

Gina Schackel

The first episode I've heard with only two actors. (Even "The Black Room" had three.) The gender politics are horrible—as is Chekov's "sybaritic" radio.

"Acid rock" on the radio is also an important plot point in "And Nothing But the Truth."

Adam Duncan knows he loves Joyce Adams from the first moment he set eyes on her at the off off Broadway theater where they both work, so he proposes to her right away. When the newlyweds move to Hollywood for Joyce’s first movie role, Adam meets her twin sister, Janice. Suddenly he realizes he really should have married Janice, the more serious of the twins, and vows to make her his wife if it means that he has to kill Joyce first.

On many levels, this story doesn't make sense. This jerk was supposedly in love with Janice, but he didn't seem to care that she would never forgive him if she knew that he murdered her sister. He is obviously revolted by Joyce, yet he married her, and he thought he loved her. Then suddenly he hates everything about her as soon as meets Janice, especially her voice. That doesn't make sense either because if he hated her voice, he wouldn't have been attracted to her in the first place. Despite the serious plot holes and unbelievable characters, Marian Seldes did a fantastic job playing two completely different personalities, and she sounded like she was having a lot of fun playing Joyce.
