Another GREAT episode from CBSRMT! I have absolutely no sympathy for the utterly grouchy & paranoid Max. I don't know how his wife,Helen could stand him! Max does get what he richly deserves at the end. He also sounds as though he has either emphysema or asthma, judging from his breathing.

I remember when CBSRMT was on KIXI here in Seattle before in moved to KIRO in 1977.

A pyschological drama with supernatural elements left open as a possibility. The story is somewhat engaging, but the acting spells out e.n.e.r.t.a.i.n.m.e.n.t.

This is another amazing performance by Ralph Bell! He plays the part of Max, a sick psychopathic character, to perfection. His portrayal of Max was very realistic, three dimensional, scary and pathetic all at the same time. If anyone else had been doing this role, it might not have worked, but Ralph Bell is a very good actor and he plays villain roles especially well. I like Larry Haines too, but Ralph Bell totally made this episode!
