Storyline

Old Ben is a kind old man who likes to play with the kids, whether it's baseball or hide and seek. Little Jenny, who has to wear braces on her legs, is particularly fond of him. He tells her he has to leave soon since the men who are after him will soon arrive. He assures her that he's not a criminal or anything like that. She wants him to take her with him but he says it can't be done. He does fix the problem with her legs however. Turns out Old Ben is important where he comes from and arranges it so that he and Jenny can get what they want. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: Mrs. Gann will be in for a big surprise when she finds this
[photo of a handsome young man]
Narrator: under Jenny's pillow, because Mrs. Gann has more temper than imagination. She'll never dream that this is a picture of Old Ben, as he really looks, and it will never occur to her that eventually her niece will grow up to be an honest-to-goodness queen - somewhere in The Twilight Zone.

More Innocent Times
10 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

These were certainly more innocent times. If an old man like J. Pat O'Malley started hanging around the neighborhood kids as we see him here, there would be a lot of suspicion as to his motives right now. But he's a kindly old duffer and to one child, little Susan Gordon he shows a side the others have never seen.

He's quite magical you know, like an oversized leprechaun. Gordon who has a leg brace because of infantile paralysis sees him shape shift like Odo of Deep Space Nine. Her guardian is a nasty spinster aunt played by Nancy Kulp and when two strange men start hanging around, O'Malley tells her he has to leave with them.

This Twilight Zone episode is a charming fantasy. I can't say more lest I reveal who and what O'Malley is. But Susan Gordon gets the ultimate happy ending.
