Storyline

The millionaire Carlton Webster is infatuated by the gorgeous and young Linda who does not know that he is a wealthy man. When he proposes her to get married with him, she tells that he is too old for her and Carlton becomes obsessed to look younger. He visits an infamous doctor that asks one million dollars to switch his face with the younger Hans that will receive 900,000 dollars. When Carlton visits Linda again, she tells that his torso is too old and the doctor now asks two million dollars for a new surgery and his associate Hans again is the donator. But when Linda sees Carlton's legs, she tells that they are scrawny legs. Carlton goes to the doctor that asks his last three million dollars for the surgery. Carlton becomes young with Hans's body but when he visits Linda, he finds that she has moved for a fancy neighborhood and soon he learns what she is looking for.

Directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger?
8 May 2011 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Yep, this season two episode was directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger...and he didn't do too badly. He even acts in the beginning with the cryptkeeper.

As for the story, it's a slightly silly little tale about an old man who resorts to a drastic and expensive procedure to woo a much younger woman. But will an EC style twist be waiting around the corner? You bet! This episode is a little low on horror, but its pretty entertaining. Also, this marks Rick Brocksmith's third appearance after The Man Who Was Death and Cutting Cards and he's a hoot as the eccentric surgeon.
