Archival footage of firemen responding to a fire accompanies John Newland's narration. The fire is supposed to have happened in 1921, but the automobiles and clothing shown in the footage are from a later date. See more »
Luana Anders stars as Alice Denning, an attractive but shy girl who is struggling to adjust to her new community after another move by her insensitive father(played by Edward Platt) who is also blind to his cruel sister who resents the poor girl, and undermines her whenever possible. Alice however has the power of pyrokinesis, which is the ability to start fires with her mind, which has gotten her in trouble in the past, but just might help her out in future. Sandra Knight costars as her sympathetic friend. Good cast and story here which has inevitable comparisons to "Carrie" and "Firestarter", but this fine episode can stand on its own.
