Weird, Contrived, Essential
15 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

This episode is really weird.

Bradford Dillman is a good actor and I like him: it's why I find it interesting - a less-talented actor would have made the already hokey and implausible theme hopelessly ridiculous.

Audra has another beau here: in the form of a young M.D. who studied medicine in Vienna (!) That poor generic house we've seen maybe a dozen times on the show in various stories is shown as a deserted hovel here! The doctor Dillman plays goes insane and scares the petticoats off Miss Audra: thank goodness her big brothers are nearby...

It's really a hokey and far-fetched episode, but then that stuff can be winning entertainment - sometimes!

Enjoy at your leisure
