Storyline

In the pilot of the television series _"Night Gallery" (1970)_, Rod Serling introduces three separate paintings, each with its own story of uncanny vengeance against evil to tell. The first, "The Cemetery", involves a black sheep nephew (Roddy McDowall) who murders his rich uncle to inherit his fortune - both much to the detriment of the uncle's butler (Ossie Davis) - only to find that vengeance extends beyond the grave. In the second story, "Eyes", a rich, heartless woman (Joan Crawford) who has been blind from birth blackmails an aspiring surgeon and a man who desperately needs money to give her a pair of eyes which will allow her to see for the first time - even though for only half a day's time - only to have the plan backfire on her in ways she never imagined. In the third story, "The Escape Route", a Nazi war criminal (Richard Kiley) is hiding from the authorities in South America, where he is confronted with his past demons and a curious Holocaust survivor (Sam Jaffe) and finds...

Crawford's Final Substantial Role
6 November 1999 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

This was Joan Crawford's second to last film (actually a TV movie) that was the pilot to the famous show created by Rod Sterling. There are three segments all which evolve around a painting and have very good morals. The first two are the best. Crawford's segment (the second) directed by Steven Spielberg (his directorial debut) is about a vicious, blind Park Avenue millionaire who undergoes an eye transplant just so she could see for a few hours, but everything does not go the way she plans. "Night Gallery" is a masterpiece, and I highly recommend it to anyone, especially Crawford fans or Twilight Zone fans.
