Something is definitely missing...

Poor adaptation of a story that--to put it mildly--is wildly ambiguous and actually makes no sense at all when you stop to think about it. Surely the original story must have had a clearer view of things.

It starts with a recurring dream by a boy (Sal Mineo) who seems to be searching for a father figure in mid-19th century Paris. The next day, he does meet a Baron (George Sanders) whom he believes is his long lost father. But his mother (Patricia Morison) reacts strangely when she realizes what is happening and she warns her son to stay away from the man he originally saw in his dreams.

The plot wanders on, making even less sense as it goes on, lurching toward a climactic ending that is puzzling and solves nothing in the way of clearing up the mystery. Mineo is earnest and appealing but George Sanders seems bored by the whole project.

Summing up: A half-hour TV play on "Screen Directors Playhouse" directed by Hugo Haas, it lacks any real distinction apart from some fine B&W photography.
