This TV movie opens with a Hefner-like magazine publisher, who’s just turned forty, answering his doorbell. Into his bachelor pad pops a young, bikini-clad girl with a bow fastened around her waist; she sings “Happy Birthday”, then plants a kiss on the startled Long. The publisher suspects that his buddies have set this up, but in fact Valentine is as much responsible for the surprise. A country gal, she has come to the big city in search of a husband, and she’s hoping that by presenting herself to Long, she’ll be launched on the road to romantic fulfillment. More whimsical than sexy, The Girl Who Came Gift-Wrapped was another pre-fab ABC Movie of the Week.
