Bill Bixby takes over the role of Tom Corbett from Glenn Ford. Both men went on to appear in popular comic book adaptations. Ford played Jonathan Kent, adoptive father of Clark Kent, in Superman (1978). Bixby went on to play Dr. Banner on Incredible Hulk....played by Lou Lou Ferrigno. See more »
This show really worked in large part to the way the late great actor Bill Bixby handled the part with such realistic care and ease. This gave the show the right texture and feeling and was a nice platform for the young Brandon Cruz to work from. The show also worked because of the unique combination of the talents of the whole cast including the great Miyoshi Umeki and of sensitive and intelligent script writing. Like many others, I would like to see these episodes repeated again on one of the classic TV networks.
