I'm in my 60s. I have always remembered this TV episode that featured an "electrified man" walking the city streets, deadly to anyone, or anything that touched him. It was a real spine-chiller for a five year-old kid. I probably liked the smoke and the sparks ignited by the electrified man. I remember getting freaked-out during the screen when the electrified man was walking down the residential sidewalk while a little girl on roller skates approached. The episode is not over 60 years old but I remember that scene specifically.
Oddly, these years later I thought the electrified man was in a Superman episode and not Captain Midnight. I guess that's an understandable error given how long ago it was, how old I was at the time, and that both Captain Midnight and Superman fought crime in their own unique way. Anyway, a search on Youtube cleared up my confusion. As for the little girl on skates and her near-miss encounter of the electrified man; it isn't quite as unnerving these days. Maybe I've matured a little since 1954.
