Always liked this one. It is one of the few that I could remember vividly from my childhood. Even remembered her birth year!

A man of 70 years old and his wife, who appears to be no older than her late teens, settle into a lake house in the Adirondacks. The apparent difference in their ages raises eyebrows with the neighbors. When the young lady disappears, a murder investigation ensues.

An old man goes out sailing with his very young wife. He returns alone. When the sheriff inquires about her whereabouts, the man tells him an incredible tale of eternal life.

A man is questioned by police when his wife turns up missing after a sailing excursion. Accused of her murder the man offers up an incredible alibi: his wife cannot be dead because she is immortal. His story of marrying a woman who has lived for over 400 years and is impervious to death is too amazing to believe, but it just might be true. This is an intriguing episode with good performances by the leads, raising the question of whether or not it would really be so wonderful to live forever. Genre: Occult

An elderly man is seen taking a young beautiful woman out in a boat. When he returns alone there is an investigation. There is consensus amongst those asked that the woman was his wife, despite the enormous apparent age difference. When questioned, the man insists that his wife, is 19, and will always be 19, and has been 19 since the French revolution when her alchemist father fed her a potion that promised immortality.

I remember hearing this story when it was aired in 1975! I can't believe I found it. What an interesting story. I am so happy I discovered the CBS Mystery Radio site.

A melancholy tale - a little mysticism, a little romance, even a little Dr. Kevorkian. And a mystery - was the tale really true?
