Sad to see an episode like this come this close to the end of this otherwise excellent series. I found it difficult to follow the story-line every time they went to William Schallert as a Chinamen. It's just too silly. There were many fine Asian actors in Hollywood in this era. Why in Gods name would they do a whole episode involving Chinese people and have all the Chinese speaking parts go to Western actors. It looked ridiculous and sounded ridiculous. They had a few Chinese actors at the beginning purely as window dressing. Williams Schallert was a fine actor. But, watching him in this role was almost unbearable. The actors attempts to do Chinese accents failed miserably. And putting Schallert in some kind of Chinese (?) clothes and sticking a ridiculous hat on him. Did nothing to make him the least bit convincing. This is an episode that should not have been made.
