Interesting in that supernatural elements are hinted at but everything is explained in the end. Mystery drama; no supernatural elements.

Fantastic story here, with more than one twist. I imagine it as occurring in golden age Hollywood, although there is no exact time frame specified. This was a bait-and-switch tale that kept me guessing until the end. In it, I saw some influences of Daphne Du Maurier's classic novel "Rebecca" and perhaps Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu's "The Wyvern Mystery." Pay attention to the secondary characters; the one that you least expect turns out to be the villain.

A woman marries a man who has been previously married. His first wife is a favorite of the servants and she appears to be sorely missed. We wonder why she died and what caused her death. Is the new bride in jeopardy?

A dud. The actors and story are more dead then the “ghost”.

A woman arrives at the estate of her new husband to find his former wife' s spirit still haunts the place. She died under suspicious circumstances.

Eerie haunted house tale. Highly recommended.

A woman marries a famous movie star whose ex-wife was another famous starlet killed in a tragic accident. The new wife struggles to gain acceptance from the servants at her husband's family, for the memory of the former lady of the house is far from gone.

The performance of the actress who portrayed the evil sister elevated this show's quality. Favorite line (quoting from memory) "This place gives me the heebie jeebies. Let's go back before he let's loose those damn dogs." Early in the episode I assumed the husband was the Bad Guy, so I was pleasantly surprised when the sister was revealed as the villain. And her strange, almost romantic attachment, to her brother jumped out at me. RMT was not afraid of dealing with themes/stories that could be considered controversial.

I put it on the husband early on, but really enjoyed the performance of the sister and was surprised at the end. My wife, however, already had it figured out right away. I'm glad to know you guys are enjoying these.

Teri Keane stole the show. Actually, she and Ruby Dee were both fabulous.

Another good story where it starts out as a supernatural tale but ends up not being one. The story is also good as until near the end you aren't really sure who the "bad guy" is as it could be anyone.

It turns out that Ruby Dee was 89 when she died. Some newspapers and news shows have reported the wrong birthdate and age for her.

Teri Keane and Ruby Dee were solid, as ever, in this tale, but it's not a favorite. There was an eerie quality, but it didn't develop as well as I'd hoped. RIP, Ruby Dee.

I'm glad you made this today's featured episode. It's a nice tribute to Ruby Dee. She died at 91 years old a few days ago.
