The Remarkable Mrs. Hawks

Written by Donald S. Sanford, from a story by Margaret St. Clair
Directed by John Brahm
Starring John Carradine, Jo Van Fleet, Paul Newlan, and Bruce Dern
Originally aired on December 18, 1961

The secret of Mrs. Hawks's ability to raise prize-winning pigs? She is Circe, the enchantress of Greek myth who once turned great warriors into swine.

Überfamous Hollywood veteran and horror icon John Carradine turns in a delightfully over-the-top performance as an educated hobo, and actor Bruce Dern—probably best known to genre fans for his starring role in the sci-fi flick Silent Running (1972)—also does a memorable job during his brief moments on the screen.
