Brian Aherne plays a renowned stage actor named Booth Templeton who is dissatisfied with his life since his new young wife is openly having an affair, and his thoughts turn toward his first wife Laura(played by Pippa Scott) long deceased. After getting cold feet about starting a new play with a young and firm director(played by future film director Sydney Pollack) Booth discovers himself back in time when his wife and best friend Barney were still alive, but they don't act the way he remembers them... Underrated episode is a real gem, with superb performances and direction, and a most poignant and intelligent story that ends perfectly. Deserves to be better remembered by fans.
