Do we remember the 'Colonial House' episodes with that irritating woman 
who wanted to wear her hair down long because it 'symbolized her 
femininity' or some claptrap like that. She knew she would be wearing a 
costume when she signed on with the show. But every time they showed her 
working in the kitchen I held my breath, half expecting  to see her go 
up in flames- hair loose, hanging over the fire, in her eyes, etc. I 
wonder how many of us yelled at the tv- "Cover your hair, idiot!"
