Mission Impossible: The Elixir

When the President of San Cordova dies his deputy prepares to announce free elections but the president’s widow, Riva Santel (Ruth Roman), plans a coup to make herself dictator: the IMF must stop her.

As part of an elaborate plan Cinnamon (Barbara Bain) must convince the vain Riva that she has an elixir capable of delivering eternal youth – provided you take regular doses; IMF thought this such a good ploy that they used it again in ‘The Fountain of Youth’. At the end of the episode Cinnamon disguises herself as Riva for the getaway.
