Episode Info

Cliff Emmich guest stars as John Bevins, a warm-hearted but grotesquely heavy man who is treated as an object of ridicule by most of his neighbors. John accepts a job at the one place in town where no one can see him: the school for the blind where Mary Ingalls (Melissa Sue Anderson) works. Totally accepted by the sightless students, who can "see" John's unconditional love for them, John is happy and content at last -- until a humiliating incident causes his daughter, Amelia (Julie Anne Haddock), to forsake him out of shame.
