Harmon Gordon is now quite elderly but is married to Flora, an attractive woman some 40 years younger than him. She's something of a gold digger and is now quite bored with her marriage. Harmon turns to his younger brother Raymond, a medical doctor who has been experimenting with cellular regeneration. Raymond's experiments to date have been on lab animals and he's reluctant to help Harmon as he has no idea what effect his youth serum might have on him. In the end, he administers his serum and by the next day Harmon is a new man, so to speak.Written by
During the opening monologue it's stated that Harmon Gordon's wife Flora is 40 years his junior. However, Patrick O'Neal was only eight years older than Ruta Lee in real life. See more »

It happens to be a fact: as one gets older, one does get wiser. If you don't believe it, ask Flora. Ask her any day of the ensuing weeks of her life, as she takes notes during the coming years and realizes that the worm has turned - youth has taken over. It's simply the way the calendar crumbles - in The Twilight Zone.

Patrick O'Neal stars as Harmon Gordon, who is an aging man recently married to a much younger woman named Flora(played by Ruta Lee). Harmon is charmed by her beauty, but blind to her heartless, gold-digging true nature. By coincidence, his brother(played by Walter Brooke) is a scientist working on a youth rejuvenation serum that has had mixed results so far, but a desperate Harmon insists on being the first human subject, but the effects of the serum go much farther than he planned... Good cast here makes it watchable, but episode is still thin, and leaves several unanswered questions by its assumed "just" ending, such as if it really turned out best for Harmon...
