    Edgar Buchanan is excellent as Grandpa Harwell, the whimsical old sprite of a father to Martha Brown (Ann Doran). The latter is also wonderful in this well-crafted story, dreadfully upset when she believes her somewhat eccentric father is spending his last nickel to send Velvet (Lori Martin) and her horse, King, to England - to compete in the Grand National. A delightful scene between the unnerved Martha and the unbending, annoyed Herbert (Arthur Space) is a highlight of this well-directed and excellently-performed episode.moreless
