Pretty Dramatic but Engaging
26 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is apparently the premier of this 1951 science fiction series. It involves a man who is on trial for first degree murder. He endeavors to convince the jury that he did not harm the man. He then goes into flashback mode, saying that an unpatented blowtorch was the centerpiece in an effort to find a device that was being used by aliens. A quirky scientist talks the young inventor into assisting him. He gives him all the money he has to prod him into assisting him (actually to cut through a door into a treasure trove of technology). It's the huge amount of money that applies the coup de grace. Of course, it's not that simple. I really enjoyed the freshness of the camera work from the early days of television. When we consider that this was probably live and seen over 60 years ago. While the whole thing is a bit too dramatic, it works pretty well. I look forward to seeing some more of the episodes that are still available.
