Version 1948: Mrs. Wheeler

I just thought of this this afternoon: What about Gene Tierney as Mrs. Wheeler, in the 1948 film? She has the same sort of coloring as Honey (minus the hazel eyes) and had just scored a success with the Ghost and Mrs. Muir in 1947. I think she would probably be available to guest-star in the Trixie films. ;) And of course, she's just gorgeous. As Trixie describes her, "the most beautiful woman [I've] ever seen". Plus, she's glamorous enough to play Honey's ultra-sophisticated mother perfectly.

"Why, it's you twenty years from now!" Trixie giggled to Honey.
