- Program Description
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, except that the rose in question is Lester Rose (Ronald Pickup), a middle-aged photographer who specializes in glamour shots of wealthy women of "a certain age." The children of well-to-do widow Gillian Snape (Janet Hargreaves), Lester's fiance, worry that he also specializes in marrying for money; they hire Hetty to investigate Rose's past. Hetty and Geoffrey quickly develop an unflattering portrait of Rose as a gambler, a gigolo and a man of ever-shifting identities. Should they stop the wedding? While surprising facts revealed by two women from his past -- and Hetty's undercover visit to his studio -- expose a slightly less thorny side to the man, Geoffrey digs up one last important clue.
