Fielden Farrington is an absolute genius. This a straight up ghost story which will haunt you. It is one of my favorites.

It is so cool to hear Morgan Fairchild in the show. What an interesting mystery.

It seemed like Beth's mother was keeping her daughter from becoming a murderer. Even from beyond the grave. Good story. At times, Ann Sheppard sounds a lot like Jean Arthur.

I listened to Pool of Fear a few days ago...it really does keep you on the edge of a cliff til the very end! My favorite one.

Pool Of Fear was an AWESOME story.

Love this episode... It's the best!!

This was William Redfield's final RMT episode. It happen 40 years ago today (10/7/76).

A straightforward ghost story featuring none other than my wife, Morgan Fairchild. She's excellent, by the way, as a not-exactly-evil but unhealthily obsessed daughter in mourning. Her conflicted accomplice also turns in a decent performance as a man caught between his conscience and his heart's desire. The downside is some bland and two-dimensional parts by the lead's father and especially her stepmother Millie, which undercuts the suspense.
