A very telling episode!!!
19 June 2009 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

I BARELY remember "Sky King" was run on CBS as a child, but know the show was run on Saturdays. I certainly do not remember this episode at all.

But this one catches my eye because of a child actress named Jill Oppenheim.

The story line is prehistoric when it comes to the role of the sexes, but it is a product of its time. The story is definitely ripped right from the time of the Red Scare of the 1950s, and involves kidnappers from a "totalitarian" regime, obviously a reference to the Iron Curtain. And the episode reminded me of "The Adventures of Superman," which ran during this time.

When this episode first aired in 1952, Ian Fleming had begun work on a novel concerning a spy named James Bond. This may be unrelated, except for the child actress mentioned above. I would go on to see her for the first time on TV in 1966--as Jill St. John, playing the role of Molly in the first episode of Batman. Five years later, she was the female lead in the 007 movie "Diamonds Are Forever." Definitely a far cry from "Sky King," but it is a real treat to see this actress in a role this early in her career!! Both she and the other cast members do a fine job!
