Storyline

A group of studio executives and a leading lady (Gia Scala) view a screening of a black mass, and are impressed by the performance of Karl Jorla. They want him for the lead in their next horror picture, so they fly him into Hollywood from France. They need to arrange for publicity but Jorla refuses, saying that the film they observed was of him as the real-life arch-priest of a group of devil worshipers who will track him down and kill him. The studio tries to protect him, but he trusts no one. He disappears, then suddenly emerges three days later in a scene with the leading lady, cryptically mumbling the address in Topanga Canyon where he may be located. The police find his murdered corpse, but an autopsy reveals that he has been dead for at least three days. Written by Lew Amack

Trivia

During Hitchcock's closing remarks at the end of the show, he's advanced on by a slender figure, in tights, with a very strange head. The head is an unused design for the aliens in "It Came from Outer Space." This seems to be its only appearance on screen. See more »

A trip down memory lane.
27 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow,does this bring back memories! I was in my last year of high school, and having seen Christopher Lee in one of the Dracula movies, I already had a crush on him. I wasn't sure until almost the end that I had seen this before. It was the address of the house that jogged my memory. Now Lee is three years younger than my mother would be if she were still here, and he still looks great and is still acting. Good for him! I do wonder, though, seeing this now, if Lee was wearing a hair piece in this episode. I don't think his natural hair looked like that. I agree with the poster who said that it would have been more effective if the episode focused more on Jorla and maybe a bit more on his history and what he was experiencing and less on the pointless discussions by the crew. It was interesting to see Lee in the role of the victim rather than the perpetrator of fear.
