The Fountain of Youth with guest star Nancy Kulp (1958) - Footage Offline 10/12/09

Did you know Nancy Kulp worked with Orson Welles? Welles made this half-hour drama for Desilu that aired as a brief summer replacement in 1958. It was his attempt to prove to himself, and perhaps the networks, that he could be just as innovative in television as he had been in film. However, it didn't lead to much. If the studios had trouble with Orson, just imagine what it would have been like seeing Welles deal with advertisers who dictated content. Apparently this is one of only two surviving episodes.
