Storyline

The election draws near and William Lyons Selby seems destined to win. Elsewhere, the communist nation of dictator Li Kwan has achieved a remarkable breakthrough: a serum that renders human flesh plastic. A simple injection and a process of molding allows an agent to quietly murder Selby and take his place! America has elected a spy to the highest office in that nation. Selby's daughter and his aide suspect all is not right, but have no idea what the real problem is. One thing seems certain: if they can't find out soon, the problem of "who's who" is sure to widen, and America will fall to an insidious enemy without firing a shot... Written by CommanderBalok

Trivia

It is interesting and somewhat prophetic that the second show "Hundred Days of the Dragon" which depicted a President of the United States covertly assassinated by a Chinese agent was aired on TV on September 23, 1963. On November 22, 1963, just 60 days later, 35th president John F. Kennedy was overtly assassinated also, even though under different circumstances. See more »

Goofs

Although it is established early on that the main character played by Sidney Blackmer is supposed to be missing part of a finger, you can see clearly throughout the episode that he has no such characteristic. See more »

A political thriller about the strange events of a face-changing President.

What is a political thriller doing as the 2nd episode of The Outer Limits?? When seen in my 1980s youth I was not too big on this episode but repeat viewings do wonders for Limits and now, aged in my 40s, I rather like The Hundred Days Of The Dragon. However, I must admit that the hour would not be half as good without that wonderfully brainwashing music playing over the whole thing. The score is playing in my head as I type this review.

It is also rather fun to see the Asian actor - Richard Loo - in this as in 1965 he would go on to play much the same type of character in the classic Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episode: Time Bomb.
