This is a brilliant half-hour TV Episode that Welles did to prove he could do television. He uses narration, stills, live-action and minimal sets to great advantage... and I see many similarities to later series, such as TWILIGHT ZONE, THRILLER and OUTER LIMITS. Who knows who might have seen this and been influenced by it? I managed to catch it at the American Cinematheque, where they played one of only two prints in existence. Let's hope this makes its way to DVD -- everyone should see it.
