Emily MacDougall, a young woman living in England during World War II, begins to have strange hallucinations of death and destruction. What she doesn't realize is that her visions may threaten not only the man who is closest to her, but the entire country as well. Written by
In England during the summer of 1943, attractive Elen Willard (as Emily) assures a military officer she is neither hysterical nor mentally insane. After host John Newland walks on the set to agree, Ms. Willard explains an unusual event, in flashback We move to France in May of 1939 where Willard has rented a house. On a stormy night, a handsome stranger is brought into the house, wounded in a battle with Nazis. He calls out "Emily, I love you!" then dies. The whole scene disappears and visiting American friend Sally Fraser (as Ann) assures Willard it was only a dream...
As you might guess, the man from the "hallucination" appears, and then he and our troubled heroine fall in love. You'll have to see if they can cheat fate This is a fine little Gothic story. Willard makes it seem more like "Dark Shadows" than usual by resembling a combination of young Kate Jackson and Jean Simmons. She is very good, and has terrific chemistry with leading man Alex Davion (as Harry MacDougall). Odd (not), he does not have the cockeyed eye or weak chin mentioned in the script. More work from these two performers would certainly have been welcome.
****** To Know the End (11/1/60) John Newland ~ Elen Willard, Alexander Davion, Sally Fraser, Noel Drayton
