I Wonder What That Ingot Would Be Worth Today
6 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is just really stupid. You have old Gene Lockhart (father of June and one-time Ebenezer Scrooge) running some device from his apartment, trying to turn base metals into gold. Because he is such a nut case, his daughter deceives him by using the same gold ingot time after time so he won't attempt suicide. He is whiny and irrational and continues on his mission, despite ruining his daughter's life and going into financial ruin. The young woman does not heed the advice of her lover, to give the old man the bad news and so perpetuates his silly behavior. We are never let in on just how the guy is hoping to accomplish his task, just that he is. Also, that machine, which looks like a potter's kiln, is running in a residential apartment. The ending, of course, is so predictable. This is one of the worst of these episodes.
