Episodes From Nigeria With Love In the Roman Candle's Bright Glare When Shadows Fall With This Ring

The main story here is OK: Darren McGavin, (who is always good) and Patricia Barry, (a little precious but OK), play an anthropologist and a missionary with a love-hate, or at least argument relationship probably inspired by Peter Finch and Audrey Hepburn in "The Nun's Story". He has a strain of pneumonia he can't seem to lick and his old friend, Dr. Gillespie, has gotten him to come to Blair to search for a cure. McGavin doesn't think much of the church but has fallen in love with Barry, who has reciprocated, despite the scenes when they seem like the Bickersons, which don't do his condition any good. They finally work out their problems. What they don't' work out is why a missionary is wearing blue eye shadow, (which stands out against her flaming red hair).

The episode is marred by the bizarre performance, in an irrelevant sub plot, of a young actress named Tippy Walker, )"The World of Henry Orient") as a neurotic teenager with a crush on Dr. Kildare. Walker delivers her lines in a sing-song voice, twitches her head back and forth, blinks her eyes constantly and giggles inappropriately. She's supposed to be portraying youthful innocence and vulnerability. Instead she suggests a bank clerk in the middle of a hold-up.
