An Outstanding Hour
29 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Seaview encounters and old WW1 sub and a sound from it is heard. A ghostly sea Captain (Alfred Ryder) then appears on the Seaview.

What do Voyage/Sea and QM's The Invaders (1967) have in common? Both shows feature the highly under-rated, and always up to no good, Alfred Ryder appearing THREE times in both shows. From that we got six performances that rank as some of the great acting moments of 1960s television! And when you match Ryder with Basehart and an oddball director (Sutton Rolley) who really gets close up with his camera...you get a nine out of ten hour called The Phantom Strikes.

The Phantom Strikes gets one point taken away because the miniature effects in the teaser/act one (of the WW1 sub) look too miniature and this is no way to begin such an all important hour.

This episode actually has TWO credited composers and one composer is - Herman Stein - the guy who co-scored Lost In Space's outstanding hour: The Derelict. So, as you can see, The Phantom Strikes is loaded with talent, so don't let those poor effects at the start put you off an outstanding hour!
