Now, I know that when these stories were run on the radio, they had to pack all this entertainment into 52 minutes. I've noticed a few that have been clocked up, to make sure they got all the sponsors got their due. But this one was painfully slow. It almost hurt to listen. I'm not going to complain though, as I don't want to hear the "if you could do it better-go ahead", and find that I indeed had a new job! Still a good story. Thanx.

We got CBSRMT on KOMA out of Omaha, NE. My parents would tuck me in, and turn on the big radio down the hall. I loved listening to it then and I really love sharing it with my own kids now.

Randy Mc is right, something was terribly wrong with the sound of this episode. The actors in the story seemed to be excessively slow talking--painfully slow. The commercials, however, were perfect. E.G. Marshall sounded like he had been drinking something rather strong. 2 stars.

I just listened to CBS Mystery Theater from 10/7/74. Alan Reed (voice of Fred Flintstone) played a detective. I confess it was hard to take him seriously because I can only imagine him as Fred!

Jack makes a good point. It's a bit distracting hearing Fred moonlight as a cop and an auctioneer. Maybe Mr. Slate gave him the axe.

A woman feels compelled to buy a painting at an auction. When she shows it to a friend, she learns two things: first that the subject is her husband’s ex-wife, second, that she is not her husband’s first wife. She had apparently died in a botched robbery when she caught the burglar red handed. She chooses not to confront him with it, rather she wants to maintain the happy marriage they have despite the secret he kept. She keeps the painting in the attic and finds that the expression seems to change and she begins to hear the voice of the ex-wife sending her messages…
