I've wondered about two Ramar episodes:
[--] One, where someone summons people through a large, wicker-basket type
megaphone (looks like a cornucopeia);
[--] the other, an episode where illness strikes people with large (scary)
tatoos on the forearms. Do you know which episodes these are?
Also, there was a red-headed child actor at NBC in the fifties nicknamed
TR. He had his own show. People think it was Tommy Reddig from Lassie,
but I'm not so sure. I met him as a child on a backstage studio tour in
New York with my father in the mid- to late-fifties.
Do you know who he might be?
Thanks, Jack L. Berezov <jberezov@nyc.rr.com> (Ocxt 2003)
