Get a load of the guys in this episode of "Tales of Tomorrow".
14 September 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of "Tales of Tomorrow" stars James Dean and Rod Steiger before they were stars. And for that reason alone, it's well worth seeing.

This show is a bit like a reworking of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story. However, in this case, a man (Steiger) makes a formula similar to Jekyll's and the intention is to come up with a counter-formula--one that will unlock the goodness in people. Unfortunately, his wife is a bit of a ditz and she accidentally spills some of the formula on some food and she accidentally eats it--and becomes a nasty and rather cruel woman.

Margaret Philips' performance of as the wife vastly overshadows her soon to be famous co-stars. And, it's quite fun to watch her be so cruel and histrionic! Subtle, no--but fun and well worth seeing for the story and acting.
