Young Shane Sinutko finds one of those old bottles so beloved of fantasy writers. Shane uncorks the bottle, instantly releasing the restless spirit of an ancient sorcerer. The old conjuror causes all sorts of mischief, for which the boy is blamed. Irish handyman Garrett O'Connor, a self-styled poltergeist expert, tries to help Shane recaptured the Ghost of Thomas Kempe. This 60-minute children's story was first telecast in two parts (November 3 and 10, 1979), on the ABC Weekend Special anthology.
