An Ideological Plague
18 July 2009 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

"This program is from the famous 'Studio One' television series shown from 1948 to 1958 by CBS and was a continuation of the successful radio series of the same name. This series received multiple Emmy awards as well as nominations and brought to the small screen some of the brightest and biggest stars, directors and writers of it's time to present to the audience a dramatic feature each week. In this episode, the captain of an ocean freighter takes aboard a passenger (who) turns out to be much more than (he seems)," according to a DVD sleeve's synopsis.

This 'Studio One' episode seems to have been coupled with "Midnight Warning" as a DVD double feature due to both stories including a suggestion of the Bubonic Plague as a reason for plot developments. "A Passenger to Bali" does offer a deliciously evil Berry Kroeger (as "Reverend" Walkes), who boards Colin Keith-Johnston (as Captain English)'s ship a la "Barnabas Collins", complete with cape and cane, and pontificates, "My shadow is the sun…"

Ellis St. Joseph's "A Passenger to Bali" originally aired as a "Mercury Theater" radio show in 1938, with the foreboding Orson Welles as the ship's mysterious passenger. At that time, the drama could have be argued to warning against Fascism - but, by 1950, the evil was updated to Communism. The first half hour plays very well, with E.A. Krumschmidt (as Mynheer van Matsys) summing up the situation well. It very quickly runs out of steam during the second half.

**** A Passenger to Bali (3/27/50) Paul Nickell ~ Berry Kroeger, Colin Keith-Johnston, E.A. Krumschmidt
