Written by Donald S. Sanford, based on a story by John Clemons
Directed by John Brahm
Starring Torin Thatcher, Ronald Howard, Fintan Meyler, Henry Daniell,
      and Richard Kiel
Originally aired on February 28, 1961

An ostensibly powerful sorcerer and his colossal minion abduct a wealthy gentleman and attempt to frighten him into to signing over his property and other holdings.

Richard Kiel is well known in genre circles: he's the actor who portrayed the hulking silver-toothed Jaws in a couple of the James Bond flicks, and he also had guest parts in TV shows such as The Wild Wild West, The Twilight Zone, and Kolchak: The Night Stalker. And English thespian Henry Daniell is also nothing short of a genre icon. Indeed, Daniell built his extensive Hollywood career around playing villains, appearing in TV shows such as Lights Out and Peter Gunn and in films such as The Great Dictator (1940), The Body Snatcher (1945), and The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (1959).
