Genuinely eerie one-of-a-kind Alfred Hitchcock Hour episode, 20 May 2014
Author: john_p40 from Houston, Texas, United States

Saw this two nights ago (May 18, 2014) on MeTV and WHOA - I wasn't familiar with the episode and didn't know where it was leading the viewer. I felt four separate cases of chills crawl up my spine and settle on my neck. (There is something that's too creepy about lonely little girls interacting with their doll and invisible playmates.) The lead, Margaret Leighton, an actress trained on the British stage who won two Broadway Tony Awards, was spot-on convincing portraying the caring-but-baffled "spinster" aunt and primary caregiver of her overly imaginative young niece. There is strong character support from Juanita Moore (remember 1959's "Imitation of Life"). The story is set in early 1960's South (probably Lousiana or Mississippi) where racial segregation was the policy. And the fact that a young white blonde girl is so attached to her African-American doll only adds to the dissonance and disconnect between niece and her aunt. I'm not going into plot points; there are plenty spread across other reviews, but trust me, you won't easily forget this episode. (And, oh, that final fade-out.)
