This is the only episode of "Way Out" I have ever seen and it's available in the public domain--along with just a few others. I was quite taken aback to see that the anthology series' host was Roald Dahl and that when he introduced the show, it looked like the special effects were simulating drugs! He also talked like he might have been on something--especially since he admitted that pretty much everything he said had nothing to do with the episode!! Really...you just need to see it to believe the introduction!
"Dissolve to Black" begins with a young actress being called to a TV set. Apparently, a lady was supposed to play a murder witness and victim on the show but she new showed up for work. Now this young lady has been asked to stay late and work on her part with the director. But, considering this is a much much like "The Twilight Zone", things won't work out as she expects.
All in all, a decent episode but nothing special. Very creepy though the creepiest aspect isn't the episode but Dahl's introduction and especially his final comments. Bizarre and very watchable.
