About this item
Jean Yarbrough (PETTICOAT JUNCTION, BONANZA, THE ADDAMS FAMILY) had the Midas touch when it came to film and TV, consistently turning out hits throughout his career. Here he remakes the 1934 version of a novel by Jack Woodford, about a railroad tycoon who takes an accidental vacation while his rival close in on his empire. J.B. Matthews (Jed Prouty, LOOK WHO'S LAUGHING) is in the middle of closing a huge deal on a railroad takeover, when he is prescribed some relaxation by his doctor. He takes a trip on one of his own private trains, but falls off and lands in the midst of a foreign universe. Taken in by two hobos (Frank Faylen and Charlie Hall), Matthews is soon cured by the pair's alternative medical techniques. Meanwhile, Matthews's rivals are using the opportunity to take over his company, and his daughter (Lorna Gray), aided by reporter Jimmy Dugan (Frank Albertson, PSYCHO), searches for him in vain.
