SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE: No Food For Thought

Hosted by Truman Bradley
Guest Stars:  John Howard, Otto Kruger, Vera Miles, Stanley Andrews, Clarence Lung
Directed by Jack Arnold
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

A medical investigator checks into the mysterious death of a man looking younger than his age, and discovers a secret laboratory where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous nutrient.

Although this installment starts out with an intriguing mystery, the payoff is not quite as satisfying, despite a good cast of character actors, including Hitchcock film veteran Vera Miles.  It's not badly put together by director Arnold, but could use some more suspense or spectacle or visual ideas.
