The Prisoner in the Mirror

Written by Robert Arthur
Directed by Herschel Daugherty
Starring Lloyd Bochner, Henry Daniell, Marion Ross, Jack Mullaney,
      and Pat Michon
Originally aired on May 23, 1961

After being trapped in an enchanted mirror for centuries, an evil sorcerer exchanges locales—as well as bodies—with a present-day historian and wreaks havoc on the streets of a modern city.

Television aficionados will recognize Marion Ross, who appears here in a minor role that predates her famous Happy Days stint by more than a decade. And Henry Daniell should be equally recognizable to serious genre fans: the British-born thespian built his extensive Hollywood reputation by playing villains in TV shows such as Lights Out and Peter Gunn and in films such as The Body Snatcher (1945) and The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (1959).
