The Fanciful Dream
13 October 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Mrs. Muir (Hope Lange) is ill and young Dr. Ferguson (Don Scardino) examines her concluding it is "Virus X". Captain Gregg (Edward Mulhare) is convinced the doctor is incompetent and feels she has ague (malaria). He throws out Martha's (Reta Shaw) vegetable broth to concoct willowbark elixir with a heavy dose of brandy. It produces a fanciful dream in which she is attending an 18th century ball outside Gull Cottage. In a reversal, she is in a ghost-like state where no one can see her, but everyone can see the Captain. The different format makes it an interesting offering with a touch of romance.
