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

[opening narration]
Narrator: It's been said that science fiction and fantasy are two different things: science fiction, the improbable made possible; fantasy, the impossible made probable. What would you have if you put these two different things together? Well, you'd have an old man named Ben who knows a lot of tricks most people don't know and a little girl named Jenny who loves him - and a journey into the heart of the Twilight Zone.

Keep an Eye on that Old Guy!
4 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not up to the quality of the series. This sappy offering is about a little girl with braces on her legs (polio was still a factor in the fifties). She is living with her evil aunt, Nancy Culp from the Beverly Hillbillies. She and her friends play every day with an old man who can hit a ball a quarter of a mile, turn into a monster, and make things disappear. It turns out this guy has run away from somewhere and there are some guys in suits that are after him. It gets down to the old guy giving up his freedom to save the little girl's life. The whole premise proves to be ludicrous and the conclusion pretty unsatisfying. Also, there's the issue of the neighborhood kids hanging out with this old guy. Things have sure changed.
