Edward Andrews back for a third time, 20 May 2009
Author: kevin olzak ( from Youngstown, Ohio

After "A Good Imagination" and "A Third for Pinochle", Edward Andrews plays his third and final comic villain in episode 58 "Cousin Tundifer." This time as Miles Tundifer, scheming to rid himself of a rich, eccentric uncle (Vaughn Taylor, previously seen in "Choose a Victim"), who enjoys restoring old houses as a way of regaining his own youth. Miles discovers that his uncle's latest mansion can actually transport its occupants back to the year 1890, so long as it's a Tundifer walking into the living room. What he doesn't realize is that his resemblance to a murderous ancestor may be his undoing. One year earlier, Buster Keaton had done a similar time travel story on THE TWILIGHT ZONE episode "Once Upon a Time," only he went forward from the 1890's to the present day. All three roles, however similar, were tailor-made for Edward Andrews, who always rhapsodized about about how much he enjoyed doing them.
