Prehistoric man Tumak (John Richardson) is banished from his savage tribe and meets pretty Loana (Raquel Welch), who belongs to a gentler coastal tribe but he must fight caveman Payto (William Lyon Brown) to win her favors.
A year after Sheila Green (Yvonne Romain) is killed in a hit-and-run, her multi-millionaire husband, Clinton (James Coburn), invites a group of friends to spend a week on his yacht playing a scavenger hunt-style mystery game. The game turns out to be all too real and all too deadly.
I love saying things are before my time, but being from Newport Beach CA, I have heard a lot about this show. Yes, the premise was the snobby Yacht Club people vs the Bailey family. Pretty good "reality" as Newport/Balboa has grown from a fishing town to a verrry upscale yacht harbor type town--reputedly the largest pleasure boat harbor in the world.
The premise of THE BAILEYS OF BALBOA reflects this, as the Paul Ford family in the show is gradually being put into conflict with the rich yachting set.
OH, and interesting post about Sterling Holloway living and shopping on Balboa Island....but the stores are on Marine Avenue, not Balboa Avenue, as Balboa Avenue runs the opposite way and mainly accesses houses.
