I vaguely remember seeing a movie with a plot as described, but my memory is so dim that I thought it was set on a farm in rural America.

Take notice though, the third Doctor has role here.

Thanks for finding this! I really enjoy this kind of movie. It's a typical bit of fluff of the era, maybe a trifle late in the timeline, but script and production values are a little higher than normal (probably because it was DFj's production company, and he didn't want to be seen in low-end movies).

It's odd seeing Jon Pertwee twenty years before he did Doctor Who. Even more odd is he looked older here than he did in 1970!

It's strange that I have to give this warning -- the movie is supposedly on Amazon Prime, but that copy is missing the last twenty minutes. It's fifty-five minutes there while IMDb.com (owned and controlled by Amazon) shows it's supposed to an hour, fifteen minutes. The copy on YouTube is full and complete (I assume -- I fast-forwarded to the fifty-five minute mark so I could finish watching it).
