Another excellent episode by Henry Slesar with one his his trademark twists at the end...

Mike

Nancy

Jazz CJ.

A young nun is sent to visit a man of dubious character who was once a dear friend of a sister of her order. He is now a wealthy art collector and donates a priceless statue of St. Francis to the convent in honour of the woman he knew so well. As she and another nun accompanying her were rushing to catch their train, a man offers to help by carrying her bag… he promptly disappears. The young woman is distraught and leaves the convent and embarks on a search to recover the lost statue.

As soon as I began listening to this episode I knew I'd "seen" it somewhere before, and was even remembering the scenes evinced by the radio drama. A little Google and a little IMDB soon revealed the source, which is: The Alfred Hitchcock Hour: Season 1, Episode 6, Final Vow (25 Oct. 1962). Everything old is new again. What a delectable twist. Thank you, Mr. Slesar.

Eh, not one of the best episodes, but certainly not the worst. The nun believable and appropriately cast. 3 stars.

DAVY JOE

Loved, loved, loved the ending. The only quibble is that the slimy thief seems to get off completely.

Hayley

Of course nuns love to fight crime! Didn't you see "The Father Dowling Mysteries?" I should have guessed the ending but did not. Crime drama, no supernatural elements.

The Final Vow is an odd story, slow-moving, and hard to get into, but ultimately redeeming. Well-acted, though overplayed at times, Henry Slesar’s conclusion gave me a nice warm feeling inside. Sometimes what seems like an oddly-woven or confusing narrative is in actuality a well-intentioned crescendo to a moving climax. I give The Final Vow 4 stars out of 5 – JUROR #4

An excellent story. One of the few "feel good" outlines by CBSMT. Nice to hear during times of uncertainty. Thanks for that!!

An okay story about someone seeking to fit in and redemption. Although I expected who was coming to value to statue, I was sort of expecting him to handle it differently. I guess he really did have some good in him.

Hats off to the sharer for leaving the fascinating news and commercials in the mix. I adore hearing them!!

I also remember this story being done on: The Alfred Hitchcock Hour: Season 1, Episode 6, Final Vow (25 Oct. 1962).
