A therapist likes to mix in her supposed talent for fortune-telling in order to boost the confidence of her clients. When a young man comes to her desparate for some good news, she fortells that he will wed a wealthy woman. All seems well until his new bride mysteriously dies. An interesting story with a nice performance by Kim Hunter. Genre: Drama

I like this episode very much. As Wally wrote, just above me, Kim Hunter gave a very nice performance as the seemingly bored and put-upon therapist-fortune teller, Tamara. Russell Horton did as well, coming off as perfectly awkward and, er, socially challenged. I loved all the talk of the sweets Tamara would make for Horton's character to give his boss, the woman he is trying to woo ("gateau Robert" and "Nesselrode pudding." I have no idea what they are, but hearing those names makes me hungry LOL). As an aside, what Tamara says when beginning her soothsaying duplicates dialogue found in Elspeth Eric's "The Clairvoyant" -- that bit that goes, " I'm going to let my mind go foraging into the future, seeking out the secrets, hunting through time and space for happenings that never were, crises that never occurred yet are bound to occur, circumstances for which the stage was set eons ago..."

This is a very interesting, strange Twisted Tale, of not very lovely people!

Rambling episode but very enjoyable! One of the better ones.

Wow, a really good story of people all looking for love, money, and happiness, here on the CBSRMT. Don't they know what to expect to find here? I enjoyed this story and the voice acting was really good. The setting was different than most stories but worked really well. I grew up listening to these shows on WJW in Cleveland, Oh as I went to bed at night, and still love doing it now on this great website!

Hi A. Fan! I also listen to these late at night in bed when I was a kid on my old junky AM radio. Lists were distorted from normal amplitude interference, but I still immensely enjoyed those that did come in more clearly. I can't recall which station(s) I'd heard them in, but I think at least one was WATH in Athens, OH.

Very good episode! Especially, considering the writer! I really wonder what my favorite critic of Elspeth, Amy, thinks of this episode!

Just wanted to add,maybe Russell and Kim made Elspeth's writing a hit with me. Hard to tell, much I did listen to it three times to digest it all!
