Cloris Leachman gives a natural, unaffected yet theatrical performance in this otherwise flat, predictable story
An American photographer (Cloris Leachman) in France asks her new landlady (Ann Codee) for models with interesting faces. When a haunted-looking man (Marcel Dalio) shows up in her room she is thrilled; but the reason for his sadness will prove to be as horrible as whoor whathe really is.
Cloris Leachman is a marvelous actress and puts this episode a cut above many others in this series. Her reactions to surprising eventsfrom the water that shoots out of her faucet to the sudden angry passion of her mysterious visitorseem natural and unrehearsed. She also has an unaffected theatricality; notice the elegant position of her arm as she holds up a negative to the light. The script has one virtue: the dialogue is invariably convincing. Leachman's character always sounds as a real person would when faced with inexplicable occurrences. Otherwise the story is flat and predictable. As soon as Leachman begins taking photos of her weird new model, we already know what she willand will notsee after she develops those negatives.
