Lily, a little girl with the IQ of Archimedes and Einstein combined, reveals that the world will soon be destroyed by the very weapons she has designed for the military.
10 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best Science Fiction stories written by the great John D. MacDonald and presented by the premiere Science Fiction show of the 1950s and precursor to "Outer Limits" and "Twilight Zone", "Tales of Tomorrow"! Lily is a little girl with the extraordinary intellect of Einstein, da Vince, Hawking, and Archimedes combined with a dash of Nostradamus thrown in.

Pre-dates "The Midwich Cuckoos" (Village of the Damned and Children of the Damned) by ten years.

Terrifying tale of the future, and a message as true today was it was in 1951 when this episode premiered!
