SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE: The Brain Of John Emerson

Hosted by Truman Bradley
Guest Stars:  John Howard, Ellen Drew, Joyce Holden, Robert Simon, Michael Fox
Directed by Leslie Goodwins
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

A police officer survives a dangerous brain injury, but after being released from the hospital, he's shocked to discover his IQ has increased exponentially.

Not a bad concept, and not a bad story, but the teleplay lacks the mystery included in some of the series' better episodes, and relies on dialogue to advance the story, without anything notable in photography, direction, or performances to make this installment special.  Not bad, but not a distinguished effort.
