SEASON 2 EPISODE 13. (35)

"Father Image"
December 15 1959.

** Spoiler Alert **

SYNOPSIS: A man inherits the estate of his dead father and learns that the bequest includes a burlesque
theater that closed down some thirty years before. Venturing into the boarded-up establishment, Dan
Gardner has an accident and a subsequent encounter with a psychic that sheds light on his father's
character, his tempestuous relationship with a showgirl, and why the old theater was never sold.

COMMENTARY: This episode puts its lead character in the ill-fitting shoes of his dead father and has him
walk around in them for a while. Part travel story, part psychic experience, part murder-mystery solved,
the story is a compelling one that demonstrates that there are secrets in every family . . .
