Episode Summary

EDIT
The Private World of Martin Dalton
AIRED:
Steven Spielberg brilliantly directs this episode about troubled 12-year old Martin Dalton (Stephen Hudis) who Dr. Whitman tries to help. Jim Hutton plays Martin's emotionaly remote pilot father and Kate Woodville is Martin's mother. Martin's parents seem to be on the verge of divorce. Martin is retreating from reality into a Salvidor Daliesque fantasy world. Spielberg was 24 years old when he directed this episode. Spielberg uses shots of comic book images to show what is going on in Martin's mind. There is also a stylish scene showing Dr. Whitman driving his Porshe that was shot by Spielberg operating the camera from low in the passenger seat. (Spielberg was fined $400 for not having a union member operate the camera.)moreless
