Just let the guy finish his story so that we can all go back to sleep!
15 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Very weak Alfred Hitchcock episode involving this escaped lunatic from a mental asylum that takes place during a blinding show-storm that in watching it the story has nothing at all to do with what your watching!

We do have this very annoying youngster Johnny Tempelton, Peter Lazar,who's always interrupting everyone by not letting them finish a sentence. This all takes place on a train with Johnny's parents Larry & Mary Templeton,Biff Mcguire & Carol Leachman, and this mysterious stranger Mr. Kilmer, Chill Wills, who seemed to have materialize out of thin air!

Johnny who's just nuts about the old Wild West gets hooked on Klimer's stories about his past as a sheep and cow header back in the turn of the century. Told by his dad that if he can keep his big mouth shut for only ten minutes as Klimer recalls a near death experience he experience back in 1905 that he'll end up getting a silver dollar for his Herculean effort. Johnny for his part does his very best to zip his yap but that seems to be asking far too much of him. That in Johnny trying to keep quite he suddenly notices this person outside the train window trying to get out of the blizzard or else end up freezing to death! It's now up to Johnny to decide if the silver dollar is worth keeping his mouth shut and thus leaving the stranger outside the train to parish in the snow.

***SPOILERS*** In the end there's no winners in this crazy story about life and death and a boy, Johnny Tempelton, who has the power by either opening or closing his mouth in manipulating both! For his part in him shutting up, even though he really didn't, for some 10 minutes Johnny did win the sliver dollar. As well as letting the somewhat nutty Mr. Kilmer finally be able to finish his boring hair brained and mindless story that no one, but Johnny, seemed to be really interested in.

***MAJOR SPOILER ALERT*** But the kicker to all this entire mishugus, craziness in Yiddish, was that the absent minded Johnny lost the silver dollar by him brainlessly sticking it into his open belt buckle instead of his pants pocket! I guess he got so caught up and blinded with Mr. Kilmer's story about his near death experience in the snow that he himself lost his ability to think clearly!
