First Season Episodes - All That Glitters (episode 26)

Smith's greed turns a magical power into a nightmare.

Bolix, a galaxy law enforcement officer, scours Priplanus in search of Ohan, an escaped prisoner. When Penny stoops to help the exhausted fugitive, Ohan stirs and Smith runs away. Smith rallies Maureen and Judy to return to the site but Penny and Ohan are not to be found. At the Jupiter 2, Ohan explains that he is a professional thief from a planet where burglary is an honored profession. 

The next day, Penny shows Smith the disc-key to the galaxy's greatest riches that Ohan gave her to hold for him. Smith takes the disc and bids her not to mention it to anyone. Smith sneaks off to the garden where a voice from the disc warns that if its holder seeks the great treasure he must not use it greedily. Smith and Penny are led to a cave in which there is a small chest. In the chest there is only a round metal ring. Smith, having put the ring around his neck and hiding it under his collar, discovers that a flower he has touched has turned to platinum. 

The next morning at breakfast, Penny reveals all she knows about the ring. Maureen and Judy feel it ought to be returned to Ohan. Smith slinks off to Bolix to arrange a trap for Ohan. Later, when Ohan shows up to retrieve his disc, Bolix and his monsters fall upon and capture him. The next day at breakfast, Smith reveals the secret of the ring to the others, but he makes the horrifying discovery that everything he touches, including his food, turns to platinum. Unable to get the ring off his neck, Smith decides to trudge off into the bush to die. 

Bolix shows up at the ship to get the ring but the girls do not know where Smith has gone. Not believing the platinum touch story, Bolix arrests the women. Penny flees. She finds Smith to tell him what has happened. When she grabs him, however, she turns to platinum. Smith is distraught and demands Bolix release the women or else he will turn Bolix into platinum. Smith demonstrates his power on a boulder and Bolix releases the ladies. Smith then returns to Penny where he begs for the disc- voice's forgiveness. Suddenly Penny is returned to normal and the ring becomes removable. 

Later, John, Don, Will and the Robot become trapped in the Chariot near an erupting volcano.

Angela Cartwright on All That Glitters

The part that sticks out in my mind on this episode was the silver makeup I had to wear. It took hours for them to put it on, and it's lucky I didn't have an allergic reaction to the silver paint.

It's not like makeup is nowadays - this makeup was horrible, thick and heavy. Thank goodness I only had to wear it one day...
