  3. Agnes Moorehead was great. One of my favorite zones included.

    And one of my favorite Suspense episodes.

  4. When a kid I saw this at the movies and it was terrifying. A gold old fashioned mystery.
    I can see now how it would have made a wonderful ‘stage play’ of which it is based. Great to
    see ‘Darla’ from “The Little Rascals” all grown up. Have this one on DVD. Love it!!

  5. There’s a silent version of this film…. ‘1926’… directed by Roland West.
