Storyline

Despite the encouragement of a loyal nurse, the abilities of Dr. Tyrell, a skilled neurosurgeon, are constantly derided by his officious and condescending superior, Dr. Foyle. Tyrell is surprised when Foyle selects him to assist in a delicate brain operation involving America's top physicist, whose survival is important to America's security and future well-being. Prospects for a successful procedure are slim, and Tyrell finds himself in the role of chief surgeon when Foyle unexpectedly backs out claiming illness. Tyrell finds himself in a no-win situation, but prior to the surgery he is visited by the enigmatic Dr, Xenon, who offers him use of a special pair of mysterious glasses which will help him in the operation.

Bruce Cabot Seemed Out of Place
8 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't such a bad episode, but the presence of Bruce Cabot, the adventurer in the original "King Kong" seems odd. Obviously, anyone could play a doctor. There is no specific type, but he seems like the lunking, shy, bull in a china shop that his other roles portray. He is at odds with an older doctor who would like to show him up. This guy puts him in charge of the brain surgery of an honored scientist who is working on really serious stuff. If he fails, the older doctor will have killed two birds with one stone. He will get out of responsibility and send his younger friend packing, for good. Suddenly, a "European" shows up and give Cabot a pair of glasses that he says are needed. He also predicts that the older doctor will dump the surgery on Cabot. Because these things come to pass, Cabot uses the glasses with remarkable results. It's an interesting episode, and they sprung for some realistic looking props and scenery. Now, if only Fay Wray would have shown up.
