Faux chinese man--harris "I'm Your Husband..." tucker and erickson

This episode of "General Electric Theater" stars Bette Davis, Forrest Tucker and Leif well as a VERY odd appearance by "Lost in Space" actor Jonathan a Chinese man!!

The Van Burens are stopping off in Hong Kong on their way home from song long trip abroad. However, when Mr. Van Buren is called to the telephone, he never returns...and Mrs. Van Buren is naturally worried. The police don't seem terribly concerned but a Chinese man soon approaches Mrs. Van Buren and offers to help. How he is able to help and what happens next is VERY unusual and offers lots of surprises.

The story is very well written and Davis is just fine in the lead. As for Jonathan Harris as a Chinese guy, sadly that sort of casting was the norm back in the I'll deduct a point for this.
