The Girl Who Stopped Time

In sleepy Slipford England the Peters family has a secret that will put London on its ears . . . It seems that every woman in the Peters family can stop any mechanical machine from working without even trying . . . In fact it is almost impossible for any mechanical device to operate properly in the presence of a Peters girl. Let me be even more clear . . . A Peters girl can indeed be in the presence of a mechanical device for exactly 14 minutes and 59 seconds before her strange power takes over, but at the fifteen minute mark . . . to the second . . . Every clock, watch, automobile, trolley . . . yes, every mechanical device in her vicinity will immediately stop at the fifteen minute mark. There is nothing that Jennifer Peters, played by Sally Ann Howes, can do to prevent this from happening . . . Well, almost nothing. It seems that if she is either asleep or unconscious her magical powers will not stop all machinery, but she doesn't know this. Her Uncle Arthur, played by James Robertson Justice, hasn't told her about the strange powers of the Peters women, and Jennifer only knows that she cannot wear a watch because they all break after about fifteen minutes on her wrist. This phenomenon isn't a big thing for Jennifer because in remote sleepy Slipford the life is very old fashioned and her powers are not known to anyone but the family. But just imagine what might happen if Jennifer, not knowing about her super-powers, would one day board the train for London . . . . Just imagine what might happen if Jennifer gets to London and rides a street car . . . Just imagine what might happen if Jennifer sat in a movie theater with the projectors grinding away happily for 14 minutes and 59 seconds . . . Just imagine what might happen if she got on an airplane . . . I don't imagine that the story authors would permit the plane to take off into the air . . . But just imagine that the airplane did indeed take off with Jennifer aboard . . . Wait just one minute . . . Instead of imagining what might happen . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
