Donna Mills makes her second Thriller appearance as the model Helen Cook in another supernatural effort called 'One Deadly Owner'. While not a favourite of mine, the episode is well-produced and never dull.

Cook becomes drawn to a white Rolls Royce in a car showroom and instinctively purchases it against the wishes of her photographer boyfriend Peter (played by Jeremy Brett). The car rapidly develops a mind of its own (somewhat like Stephen King's 'Christine') and Cook decides to carry out some investigation into its previous owner - in which she learns that the lady disappeared quite recently.

The atmosphere in 'One Deadly Owner' is effective although the remainder of the story is somewhat contrived in its narrative and execution.

Overall - average.
