Trivia

Alfred Hitchcock certainly had fun with this one. Diana Hyland is aptly named Grace looking very much like the princess of Monaco in this role with the background music from Vertigo and a doomed romance. See more »

Follow Me into the Spirit World
4 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

You don't have to be psychic to foresee events in this episode. The minute it steps off into the metaphysical, you're pretty sure where it's going. Beautiful rich heiress Grace Renford has been corresponding with Keith, whom she met through a spiritual magazine, and they are about to meet. She has been hurt before by men who were only after her money, so this time she'll pretend to be a mere secretary who lives on $80 a week in a "dime store apartment" that she has rented. Her dime store apartment is pretty large and luxurious for San Francisco, but we digress. For reasons never explained, actress Diana Hyland as Grace has been coiffed and made up to look like Grace Kelly herself, right down to the oversized glasses she occasionally wears to prove she's not vain. For their very first meeting, our Grace has invited Keith to a home-cooked dinner in her dime store apartment, even though she confesses she can't cook. He arrives at her door, strikingly handsome and well dressed. They share a love of poetry; he reads her a maudlin poem about "beyond the sea of death." She is awkward, burns the steak and mismanages the coffee. Her character is poorly written here, as she proves to be a charmless, graceless hostess, not at all the poised, adroit heiress who presumably glides through society. In fact, poor Grace becomes an immediate drip, overcome with guilt and self-doubt at pretending not to be her rich-heiress self. Once Grace and Keith have blurted out their unlikely passions for one another, however, she spills the beans, and fortunately he is not the least bit upset to discover that she is wealthy. He will stand on his own, he asserts, eschewing her riches. Alas, however, they must now part for a while before they are reunited in marriage. He must fly to Bolivia, and will send for her. Meanwhile, skeptical Aunt Minnie, well-played by Mildred Dunnock, has been watching from the sidelines and is not convinced that all is well. Events turn tragic as the paint-by-number plot continues to unfold. Aunt Minnie does a little sleuthing. Everything is predictable except for a sudden, ugly ending. The biggest surprise of all is for busybody Aunt Minnie, who meant well, but probably should not have meddled so. No good deed goes unpunished, Aunt Minnie.
