A Nicely Acted Fairy Tale
5 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

While not great, this is a good episode. A daughter tries to save her father who is a failure as an alchemist.

The story has a nice fairy tale quality. The daughter has to use the same gold ingot over and over again to convince her father that he can make gold.

Monika Lovett gives a touching performance as the daughter who tries to save her father's life by convincing him that he has successfully made gold.

Gene Lockhart was a bit character actor, probably best known as the sheriff in "His Girl Friday," and the judge in "Miracle on 34th street. His career revived in early television where he did around 50 shows between 1950 and 1956. He was the real life father of actress June Lockhart ("Lassie" and "Lost in Space") He is fine as the father-frustrated gold-maker.
