Very well done
5 March 2013 | by vette99See all my reviews

I watched this episode as a 12 year old when it was first broadcast in 1962. It was my first awareness of the beautiful Diahann Carrol and from then on, whenever I saw her I always remembered this show. I just watched it again yesterday and found it to be as well written and acted as I remembered it from all those years ago. Harold's journey across town and his teacher, Miss Jay's wisdom and heart make viewing this episode a very well spent hour. This was quite a treat for me and wonderful that it lived up to my expectation. All performances were spot on, including a 10 year old John Megna as Harold and there were some very subtle but interesting views of the teaching profession. A real winner over all.
