William Prince was in the movie "Vice Versa" from the 80's (a body switching story). I remember watching it on TV sometime after E.G. Marshall had already passed. The movie starred Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage. Prince was the boss of Reinhold's character. He plays the father here. I recall thinking that he sounded quite similar to Marshall, and wished he could do some voice overs if they would consider bringing the show back.

Explorer and writer Trevor Constaine always gets what he wants and he wants his daughter to marry his guide and assistant. Unfortunately, both are married. Trevor isn't going to let a little thing like that get int he way. With the help of some shrunken heads and a mysterious clock, he puts things into order. Sit back, light a pipe, and enjoy this one. It's good!

A world traveler and explorer is living out his last days as he dies from an illness he contracted in Borneo, where he spent considerable time with a head-hunting tribe. He has in his den above the fireplace a grizzly clock with two human thigh bones for hands and shrunken human heads to mark out the hours. His daughter is engaged to a man the father disapproves of and he states his objection quite clearly and directly. When the fiancée finds the head from the 7:00 place on the clock in his bed he return it and inquires about the mystery. Promptly, at 7:00, he drops dead. Good, says the father, now his daughter is free to marry someone more to his liking. But when the man he approves of turns up with a new wife in tow, he is not pleased. What power does the clock have?

Excellent mystery drama. I hope I find more stories like this among the subsequent stories.

A good listen, even if I figured it out fairly quickly (in defense of the story I may have remembered it from the last time I listened to it years ago). Luckily I haven't run into too many people like Trevor Constantine, but the ones I have run into have irritated me to no end and I would avoid/ignore them as I could.
