  • This episode surrounding a case of mental retardation (now they're called the mentally challgened), and at that time how society 'responded' to those with 'the condition', has always stood out in my mind mainly because of Sian Barbara Allen's performance.moreless

    What can I saw about what I term a 'classic' in all of the episodes that I've ever seen on the Marcus Welby, M.D. show? Not sure if it ever had anything to do with the fact that I have a brother who's mentally challenged, or that I've always felt close to those whom the world thinks of as needing the most help at times, either way 'They Grow Up' has "always" stood out in my memory primarily because of actress Sian Barbara Allen's performance (beyond excellent in my opinion). The way she 'handled' her 'condition', and those around her as well, was impressive and heart tugging to say the least. As one poster stated on the IMDB Database, I really wish I knew why no one has thought to put this wonderful show on DVD as of yet, when they do if this episode is included I'll be the first to purchase them.moreless
